Light it up
Light is an important element that should be taken into consideration when preparing your house for a sale. Natural light can be your best business partner and make your house much more appealing to prospective buyers. Replacing or adding more light fixtures can also help you brighten up the sale.
When staging your home, make sure your windows are squeaky clean, open the blinds to allow light inside and even turn on the lights to make the rooms even brighter, recommends Nathan Garrett of Garretts Realty Group.
Replace your flooring
Many sellers disregard it, but flooring matters quite a lot when selling a house. Scratched wood flooring, ratty, old carpets and pulled off linoleum will make your house look old and sad and cause potential buyers to scratch your property from their list for good.
The solution to making your flooring more appealing is not expensive. Get rid of old rugs and refinish the hardwood floors, you already have them. If not, opt for laminate flooring, which is way cheaper than hardwood, or ceramic tile flooring which is suitable for hot temperatures as well.
