You don’t have to spend thousands to make your home more appealing to buyers. Consider these lower-cost projects instead.

New paint

Most homes will receive natural wear and tear, such as a few dings on walls or nail holes where pictures used to hang. All of these imperfections are noticeable in marketing photos, so a fresh coat of paint will provide your home a fresh and more updated look for buyers. Statistics show that 36% of sellers will paint the interior before they come to sell.

New lighting

Good lighting is vital when showcasing your home, especially when it does not receive a great deal of natural light. Upgrading your lighting can be easy and inexpensive, and it can make even the smallest rooms appear larger. Consider taking these steps:

  • Add new pendants in your kitchen.
  • Spruce up the decor with some new window treatments.

Small bathroom updates

You don’t need to remove tile or add all-new fixtures to give your bathroom a new look. 26% of sellers make improvements to their bathrooms before selling, and they can be simple fixes such as:

  • Replacing vanity lights for a more updated look.
  • Recaulking or reglazing the tub instead of replacing it.
