10 Simple Improvements for Under $100 Home improvements tend to inspire thoughts of large, expensive projects. Yet, it is often the little things that add so much value. Do you want to improve your home for resale or personal pleasure but don’t want to spend a lot of money?

1. MAILBOX - A tired old mailbox detracts from your home’s appeal. Replace it with a new one made of quality materi als. Depending on the style that best suits your home, you can choose brass, iron, or other materials. You can put one of those cute green mallards on it, or some other visual motif calculated to offend the neighbors.

2. DOORMAT - Anything at the front door will affect your enjoyment of your home as well as a prospective buyer’s Impression. Replace that worn, dirt doormat with a fresh new one.

3. STREET NUMBERS - Make your house easy to find with bold street numbers in brass, iron, ceramic, or other quality materials.

4. TREES OR SHRUBS - Landscaping is one of the best home investments you can make. A well-placed tree or shrub will add to your enjoyment and increase resale value. For under $100, you can choose from wide selection of quality nursery stock and plant them yourself. If you like, you can play with some of the gardening software that’s out there and get an idea of what your work will look like. Try to plan it out in advance; you can add a shrub at a time.

5. PERENNIAL GARDEN - A perennial garden will bloom year after year. This permanence makes it a land scaping fixture and thus adds value to your home. If you prepare and plant the garden yourself, your $100 will buy a good stock of perennials. For the best enjoyment and value, take the time to measure your property and use graph paper to design the best placement of the garden. Many nurseries also offer free help with garden design.

6. PAINT - Spruce up a room with a new paint job. The average room can be transformed with about $60 to $80 worth of paint (and that should also over the cost of a paint roller and brushes). If you want to improve buyer appeal, then avoid trendy color schemes or overly personalized treatments. Choose from a wide selection of neutrals and time less colors. If the room is a “problem room” — small, narrow, dark (oops! that’s a closet!) — you can get even more value with a paint job that visually corrects the problem.

...


7. DOORKNOBS - If your doorknobs are made of cheap material (plastic, for example) or they’re just worn and tired, replace them with quality knobs of brass, glass, or other suitable materials. You will appreciate the better quality each time you open a door. Prospective buyers will also notice them as they go through your house. It’s roughly the equivalent of “let’s slam the car door to see what kind of quality we’re looking at here!”

8. LIGHT FIXTURES - Cheap-looking, ho-hum light fixtures downgrade a room. Quality light fixtures can increase your own satisfaction as well as buyer appeal. The best return on investment is in the bathroom, kitchen, and at the front door. Quality, well-designed light fixtures for these areas can be found for under $100.

9. LIGHT SWITCHES AND OUTLETS - If your home is like many, it probably has basic plastic light switches and plugs. The easiest improvement anyone can do is to upgrade the light switch covers. The best places to do this are in the bathrooms, kitchen, master bedroom, and at the front entrance. If yours is also an older home, it probably does not have GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets. These outlets (identified by the red reset button) are used wherever water increases the risk of shock. To improve safety and add value to your home, replace regular outlets with GFCIs in the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, and anywhere that water is present. This is an easy doit-yourself job for anyone who knows electrical repairs (always cut the power at the main panel). If you are not famil iar with how to safely replace an electrical outlet, hire a qualified electrician. This will push the cost over $100 but it will be worthwhile.

10. FAUCETS - Corroded, tired-looking sink and bathtub faucets detract from your bathroom and kitchen appeal. While designer faucets can cost many hundreds of dollars, there are many quality, tasteful sets for less than $100. If you decide to upgrade bathroom faucets, it is worthwhile to buy matching sets for the sink and tub. Faucet replacement is an easy DIY job that requires only a few common tools (screwdriver, wrench, pliers) and an hour or two of your time.

These are just some of the under-$100 improvements that will add to your enjoyment and your home’s resale value. As you look around your house, you can probably find other low-cost, high-value improvements

15 Tips To Sell Your Home Faster 1. FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE THE MOST LASTING. Remember that when a prospect comes to look at your house - the first impression is vital. Your front lawn and other landscaping should be neatly trimmed and mowed. The walk should be swept and the front door fresh looking, make sure the doorbell is in working order.

2. LET THE SUN SHINE IN. Open the drapes and curtains. Clean the windows so that a prospect can see how bright and cheerful your house is. Dark and dreary rooms do not appeal to most home buying prospects.

3. TOP TO BOTTOM. Let prospects see the full value of your home including attic, garage and storage spaces by removing junk, cartons, and other articles. Neatly stack cartons & boxes. If a space is dark and dreary, a fresh coat of paint and extra lighting can do wonders.

4. DECORATING FOR A QUICK SALE. Faded walls and warn woodwork will reduce the appeal of your home. A minor investment in paint and floor covering will pay bigger dividends to you in the form of a better price and quicker sale. Stick with earth tones. Off white paint and tan carpet in neutral. The more like new you can make your home, the better it will sell.

5. WE ALL LOVE BIG CLOSETS. You can make your closets look even bigger by having them clutter free, neat and well organized. Get rid of old clothes and cartons that take away from spacious look. Start packing, leave only the clothes you will be wearing in the next couple of months it will free up a lot of space in your closet making it look larger.

6. LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT. Loose knobs, cabinet pulls, sticky doors and drawers, wobbly hinges, stuck windows. Take a few minutes to repair all these seemingly minor flaws; they do detract from the value of your home.

7. SAFETY FIRST. Keep stairways and corridors clean and clear of clutter. In addition to being unattractive, clutter causes accidents.

8. DON'T BE A DRIP. Fix leaky faucets, dripping water suggests faulty or worn out plumbing (major repair bills). Rust stained sinks are also warning signs, so should be properly cleaned.

9. BATHROOMS & KITCHENS SELL HOMES. Make bathrooms and kitchens sparkle. Repair any damaged or discolored caulking around bathtubs and showers, be sure towels and area rugs are bright and sparkly, make sure all light fixtures and bulbs are in working order.

10. WAKE UP YOUR BEDROOMS. Keep bedrooms bright and cheerful, remove excess furniture to avoid a crowded look. Use attractive and colorful bed linens and spreads.

11. CAN YOU SEE THE LIGHT. Lights are the “Welcome Sign� for every prospect. Turn on all the interior lights when showing your home and exterior when showing at night.

12. PUT FIDO OUTSIDE. Keep all pets out of the way when showing your home, some people are allergic and potential buyers might hurry through the inspection of your home.

13. STAY IN THE BACKGROUND. Let the realtor describe and emphasize the best features of your home, they know their buyer need and wants and after all that is what they do best.

14. LET THE PROFESSIONAL DO IT. When it comes to selling price, terms, possession date and other factors let your realtor do the talking. I have been especially trained and have the experience to bring negotiations on your house to a satisfactory conclusion.

15. HAVE YOUR HOME AVAILABLE. Your cooperation is needed to make certain the house is ready and avail able to show when called.

Show off your home. Dress to impress.

17 Tips For Better Home Showings 1. Remove clutter and clear off counters. Throw out stacks of newspapers and magazines and stow away most of your small decorative items. Put excess furniture in storage, and remove out-of-season clothing items that are cramping closet space. Don't forget to clean out the garage, too.

2. Wash your windows and screens. This will help get more light into the interior of the home. 3. Keep everything extra clean. A clean house will make a strong first impression and send a message to buyers that the home has been well cared for. Wash fingerprints from light switch plates, mop and wax floors, and clean the stove and refrigerator. Polish your door knobs and address numbers. It's worth hiring a cleaning service if you can afford it.

4. Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate cooking odors, smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows to air out the house. Potpourri or scented candles will help.

5. Brighten your rooms. Put higher wattage bulbs in light fixtures to brighten up rooms and basements. Replace any burned-out bulbs in closets. Clean the walls, or better yet, brush on a fresh coat of neutral color paint.

6. Don't disregard minor repairs. Small problems such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked Caulking, or a dripping faucet may seem trivial, but they'll give buyers the impression that the house isn't well-maintained.

7. Tidy your yard. Cut the grass, rake the leaves, add new mulch, trim the bushes, edge the walkways, and clean the gutters. For added curb appeal, place a pot of bright flowers near the entryway.

8. Patch holes. Repair any holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable. 9. Add a touch of color in the living room. A colored afghan or throw on the couch will jazz up a dull room. Buy new accent pillows for the sofa.

Continue

...


10. Buy a flowering plant and put it near a window you pass by frequently. 11. Make centerpieces for your tables. Use brightly colored fruit or flowers. 12. Set the scene. Set the table with fancy dishes and candles, and create other vignettes throughout the home to help buyers picture living there. For example, in the basement you might display a chess game in progress.

13. Replace heavy curtains with sheer ones that let in more light. Show off the view if you have one. 14. Accentuate the fireplace. Lay fresh logs in the fireplace or put a basket of flowers there if it's not in use. 15. Make the bathrooms feel luxurious. Put away those old towels and toothbrushes. When buyers enter your bathroom, they should feel pampered. Add a new shower curtain, new towels, and fancy guest soaps. Make sure your personal toiletry items are out of sight.

16. Send your pets to a neighbor or take them outside. If that's not possible, crate them or confine them to one room (ideally in the basement), and let the real estate practitioner know where they'll be to eliminate surprises.

17. Lock up valuables, jewelry, and money. While a real estate salesperson will be on site during the showing or open house, it's impossible to watch everyone all the time.

Leave the home. It's usually best if the sellers are not at home. It's awkward for prospective buyers to look in your closets and express their opinions of your home with you there.
