10 Easy Home Sale Tips 1. Add power outlets with USB ports in rooms that lack them, especially in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms where they’re most needed.

2. Eliminate acoustic popcorn-style ceilings since

they look dated and tacky.

3. Use what you have, and arrange each room in a

conversational way if possible. Don’t set all furnishings in a family room so they face a TV, since most potential buyers like the idea of an open-room for socializing.

By Barbara Ballinger

6. Remove outdated wallpaper, replacing it with paint and preferably a neutral color,

7. Remove, store, or discard excessive accessories on tabletops and walls and in cabinets. Some suggest following the rule of three: Leave out only three things on any surface.

8. Pay attention to your bathrooms. Specifically,

make sure you have freshly laundered towels, new soap in soap dishes, spotless mirrors, and no mildew in view.

4. Clean carpets and wood floors since they’re often

9. Improve a home’s healthfulness by using paints

the first part of a room that buyers check out; you don’t need to replace them unless they’re in terrible shape.

and adhesives with low or no VOCs. Point out these changes to prospective buyers.

5. Change out corroded or dented door knobs and

10. Be sure your house is priced competitively with

levers. The replacements don’t have to be expensive but they should look new and clean. All things for your home and more...HARMONHOMESnMORE

7 Quick Fixes to 4. Unjamming Make Around Sliding Windows Your House by Adam Bluestein

A little silicone spray lubricant (sold at hardware stores) will grease the skids. Spray it onto a rag, then wipe along the tracks, whether they’re metal, wood, or plastic.

1.Squeaky Door Hinges

5. Plumping Up Deflated Cushions

Spray a little WD-40 onto the hinges, moving the door back and forth to work in the lubricant. Or try rubbing the hinges with petroleum jelly. If these tricks don’t work, lift the hinge pins about halfway and lubricate them with three-in-one oil, using a rag to catch drips.

Put them outside in the sun for a few hours, flipping them halfway through. (Be carefulЮleaving them out too long may fade the fabric.) The sun will help evaporate the moisture that gets into the filling over time, and the cushions should plump up nicely.

2. Fixing Unfurled 6. Repairing Marked Wallpaper Up Linoleum Floors With a knife, smear wallpaper paste onto a piece of writing paper. Rub the paper against the underside of the peeling section. Press the wallpaper against the wall. Slide the writing paper out and smooth away bubbles with a clean cloth.

Rub the spot with white toothpaste and a dry cloth or with an eraser. Or spray WD-40 on a towel and rub lightly, making sure to degrease the area afterward with liquid dishwashing soap and water.

3.Washing Chandeliers

7. Organizing & Storing Cords

Allow the fixture to cool. Wear a pair of white cotton glovesЮone dry, one dampened with glass cleaner. (For crystal, use one part rubbing alcohol to three parts distilled water.) Wipe each prism with the damp glove, then the dry one.

Cowgirls and sailors alike know the benefits of storing ropes neatly coiled. Follow their lead and keep extension cords tangle-free and contained inside a large plastic bucket when they’re not in use.
