What do you see when you look down at the floor upon which you stand?
If you have been in your home very long, chances are you learned to overlook and excuse the cracked tiles, or the faded hardwood, or the scratches made by your family pet.
Overlooking that which you are comfortable with can cost you thousands of dollars. A relatively small investment of often less than $1000 can bring you a return of more than $2000.
It may be as little as the cost of some nails to secure loose boards, or screws to replace the slightly off-centered hanging door.
On the other hand, have you thought about the carpet on which your dog, your kids, and your own feet have made their territory over the years? You can bet it will be a buyer’s first thought as he walks in the door.
Replacing carpet is a relatively inexpensive way to add thousands of dollars to your home’s value.
Be sure to choose a neutral color. A beautiful, brightly colored carpet may complete your own décor with its magnificent statement.
However, the buyer will probably not see himself in that setting.
Another area of concern to buyers is the bathroom.
Taking time to replace discolored or out-of-date faucets yourself is an inexpensive way to entirely change the look of a bath.
One, often over-looked bath item that can scream “old” is your toilet seat.
Today’s seats are light-weight and have a different look to them. A seat that came with the house in 1974 will look like just that: an old toilet seat. Same thing with door knobs. They also have changing styles.
Why not head to your local do-it-yourself store and invest in quickly changed knobs for all of your doors?
Your goal is to achieve maximum upgrades with minimum disparity in color and design.
