Little Things Mean a Lot to Increase the value of your home

Before placing you home on the market it is important to do these small items to increase the value of your home.  Here are a few simple tips to improve the look and feel of your home fast.

2. Deep house cleaning;  Make sure your homes says “clean” to potential buyers.  Hire a cleaning service for a thorough top to bottom scrubbing.

3.  Make you home feel bigger:  You can’t change the square footage of your home, but you can make each room in your house feel larger.  A sunny room feels more open-replace heavy drapes with vertical blinds or shutters.  Clear any clutter, add shelving or storage to help organize.
