Little Things to Update Your Home…Selling Your Home

Have you lived in your home for over five years?  Have you painted?  Have you replaced a light fixture?  If you have not started to update your home, now is the time.  Over a five-year period colors, hardware finishes and preferred floor coverings will all change.  If you consistently replace items as you live in your home, when the time comes to sell, you will be ready.  Additionally, you will enjoy the fruits of your labor.

In the kitchen, look at the finish of the hardware.  Do you still have brass pulls on the drawers and cabinets?  Stop by a hardware store and see all the wonderful finishes that are now available.  On to appliances, almond will not be found in a store today.  Flooring, there are unbelievable textures, finishes and styles on the market.  Many are very reasonably priced.

In the bedrooms, when was the last time you replaced a bedcover…meaning bedspread, quilt, duvet?  In the next Sunday’s newspaper check, out the Macy’s circular.  Does your bed-covers look like the ad? If not. now is the time to update.  How about a new lamp to go with the bed-covers?

First impressions are extremely important, so think about your foyer.  Does it need a new rug?  What’s the finish on the light?  Are the flowers faded in the arrangement on the entrance table?  Start checking out the end of the season arrangements available in many stores.

Remember, baths sell houses and spa baths are in.  Plush linens and new bathroom hardware are a great way to get that spa feel.  Add some fashionable art as a finishing touch.

We are not suggesting re-doing your home, its ongoing replacing items in your home to give your home a current look and feel.   Sometime in the future you will want to sell your home.  If you have not done some updating over time, you may need to do many of these items to ask and receive top dollar for your home.
