Inexpensive strategies to increase your home's value

First impressions matter, and the exterior of your home sets the stage for the rest of the tour. Curb appeal is a crucial factor in attracting potential buyers and increasing the value of your property. Luckily, there are several relatively easy and affordable ways to improve the appearance of your home’s exterior.

Start by assessing the state of your lawn, landscaping, and overall cleanliness. Consider removing any debris or clutter from your front yard or walkway. Planting colorful flowers, trimming bushes, and adding some fresh mulch can also make a big difference in creating an inviting atmosphere.

If your front door or shutters are faded or worn, consider repainting them in a modern and fresh color to give your home a facelift. Another budget-friendly option is to update your house numbers and mailbox to create a cohesive and polished look.

If you’re not sure how to enhance your home’s curb appeal, consult with one of our agents. They can provide you with valuable insight on what potential buyers in your area are looking for and offer suggestions on how to improve your home’s exterior.

Investing in curb appeal can pay off significantly by not only attracting more potential buyers, but also by increasing the overall value of your property. So, take the time to spruce up the exterior of your home and create a lasting impression for potential buyers.

De-cluttering your home is an essential step in preparing it for sale. A clean and organized home can help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space, and also make your home look more spacious and attractive.

Start by doing a clean sweep of all visible areas, including counters, tables, and windowsills. Then, move on to areas that are typically hidden, such as closets, drawers, and cupboards. Remember that curious buyers may want to take a peek behind closed doors, so it’s best to organize and declutter those spaces as well.

A home that is overflowing with personal items, clutter, and knick-knacks can make it difficult for potential buyers to see the true potential of the space. In fact, buyers may worry that there won’t be enough room for their own belongings, causing them to hesitate on making an offer.

To avoid this, consider packing up excess items to be stored off-site, or donating them to a local charity. This will not only help your home look more appealing to buyers, but it will also make moving day easier since some of your belongings will already be packed.

By investing time and effort into de-cluttering your home, you can help it look its best and attract more potential buyers. Plus, once you’ve sold your home and it’s time to move on, you’ll already have a head start on the packing process.

Depersonalizing your home is an important step in preparing it for sale. By removing personal items and distractions, potential buyers can more easily envision themselves living in the space and making it their own.

Start by removing family photos, personal mementos, and any other items that may be specific to your taste or lifestyle. This includes bold artwork and furniture that may not appeal to the general public. The goal is to create a neutral and inviting space that will appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.

Consider giving your walls a fresh coat of neutral paint to further enhance the blank canvas effect. This will help buyers focus on the features of the home rather than being distracted by personal items or bold color choices.

Depersonalizing your home doesn’t mean stripping it of all personality or style. Instead, focus on creating a welcoming and neutral environment that will allow buyers to imagine themselves living in the space. This can include adding fresh flowers, a few carefully selected decorative pieces, and subtle touches of color to create an inviting atmosphere.

By depersonalizing your home, you can help potential buyers see the full potential of the space and increase the chances of a successful sale. So take the time to create a blank canvas that will appeal to a wide range of buyers and make your home more attractive to those who are searching for their perfect home.

Staging your house doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, there are plenty of inexpensive ideas to make your home look and feel more inviting to buyers. One of the simplest and most effective ways to add some extra color and life to your decor is by incorporating plants and natural elements.

Plants not only brighten up your home, but they also make it feel more welcoming. Consider adding a mix of small and large plants to different rooms throughout your house. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry! There are plenty of low-maintenance plants that are easy to care for, such as succulents, snake plants, and pothos.

In addition to plants, a bouquet of flowers or bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter or dining table can also add a pop of color and freshness to your home. Other inexpensive ideas include adding new throw pillows or a cozy blanket to your couch, updating your shower curtain and bath mat, and swapping out old light fixtures for newer, modern ones. By making these small changes, you can help your home feel more updated, polished, and ready to impress potential buyers.

Even small repairs and touch-ups can make a big difference in attracting buyers to your home. Start by focusing on areas with the most wear and tear, like baseboards, walls, and doors. A fresh coat of paint or touch-up job can make your home look cared-for and inviting.

Buyers are looking for move-in ready homes, and small repairs can create a negative impression or leave them questioning what other issues may be lurking. By taking care of these small repairs, you can help alleviate any concerns and show that your home is well-maintained and ready for a new owner.

Don’t forget about small details, like loose handles or missing lightbulbs. These seemingly insignificant issues can cause doubt in a buyer’s mind about the overall condition of your home. By making sure everything is in working order, you can instill confidence in potential buyers and make your home more appealing.

By taking the time to fix these small repairs before listing your home, you’ll likely see more interest from buyers and may even receive multiple offers. Plus, it will make the selling process smoother and less stressful for you as well.

Foul odors can turn off potential buyers and even small smells can be a deal breaker. However, as a homeowner, you might not even notice the odors. It’s a good idea to have an unbiased third party come in and try to detect any pet smells or lingering odors from your kitchen. If the smells are pervasive, it’s important to take steps to eliminate them rather than mask them with artificial scents like candles or plug-in room deodorizers, as savvy buyers can see through these techniques. Deep cleaning and deodorizing your house is key, but be careful not to use overly strong scents that might be off-putting to some buyers. You may also want to consider using natural odor eliminators like baking soda or activated charcoal.

Cleaning is an essential step to prepare your house for sale. While you may have already done a thorough clean, it’s important to maintain the cleanliness of your home throughout the selling process. Buyers want to envision themselves living in a clean and organized space, so you’ll want to keep everything tidy.

To ensure that your house looks its best, think of it like you’re always preparing for a photo shoot. Even if you’re not planning on having professional photos taken, aim to keep your house looking spotless at all times. You never know when a buyer might want to schedule a last-minute showing.

Pay special attention to the bathroom, which can easily accumulate dirt and grime. Scrub the tile, counters, shower, and floors until they shine. Additionally, make sure all surfaces in the house are free of dust and debris.

In addition to regular cleaning, consider doing a deep clean before listing your home. This will help eliminate any hidden dirt or dust that may have accumulated over time. Consider hiring a professional cleaning service to help with this task.

Don’t forget about the outside of your home either. Curb appeal is important, and a clean and well-maintained exterior can make a great first impression. Make sure the lawn is mowed, the hedges are trimmed, and any debris is removed from the yard. A power wash of the exterior can also help remove any dirt or grime buildup.

Making Your Home Move-In Ready

What does 'Move-In Ready' mean to a seller?

Being ‘move-in ready’ can vary from person to person in terms of buying a home. Some buyers may have extravagant tastes while others would prefer a simpler style of home, but what does ‘move-in ready’ mean for someone selling their home? Lets take a look at what buyers are expecting in 2023 when they are looking for something ‘move-in ready’. 

Having a home that is move-in ready means at the minimum, a home marked move-in ready should be livable without any anticipated repairs. This includes things like electrical, plumbing, HVAC, appliances, etc. While some may want a ‘fixer-upper’, many buyers, particularly younger buyers, would prefer not to buy a house that comes with a to-do list. 

Potential sellers may also wonder if ‘move-in’ ready also means ‘brand-new’ or ‘updated’. While having updated appliances or a modern looking paint scheme may increase the value of your home, it does not mean that the home isn’t livable. So if that floral wallpaper in your spare bathroom is giving you a headache, don’t worry, it doesn’t mean the house isn’t livable, its simply a question of aesthetics. 

Below is a helpful list of tips to consider before make your home ‘move-in ready’.  

When it comes to purchasing a move-in ready home, buyers should also ensure that the plumbing and electric systems are in good condition. Faulty or outdated systems can lead to costly repairs or even safety hazards for the new owners.

The plumbing system should be free of leaks, corrosion, and any other signs of damage. It is also important to check that the water pressure and temperature are working correctly. Similarly, the electrical system should be up-to-date and in compliance with local building codes. Outdated wiring, faulty outlets, and other issues should be addressed before the new owner moves in. By ensuring that both the plumbing and electric systems are in good condition, buyers can avoid costly and inconvenient repairs after moving in, making for a smooth and stress-free transition into their new home.

Buyers looking for a move-in ready home should ensure that the roof, siding, and windows are all in good condition. The roof should have a substantial lifespan remaining, typically around 15-20 years, with no signs of damage or wear and tear. Damaged siding should be replaced to prevent moisture and pest problems, while old windows should be checked for signs of rotting, warping, or damage to the frame. 


When looking for a move-in ready home, it is important to ensure that the major systems, such as the water heater, furnace, and HVAC system, are in good working order. These systems are essential for maintaining a comfortable living environment and can be costly to replace or repair if they are not functioning properly. Buyers should verify that these systems have been well-maintained and are expected to continue functioning for several years without issue.

If any of these systems are outdated or need to be replaced soon, it can be a red flag for potential buyers. Even if the systems are currently working, the cost of replacing them can be a significant burden for new homeowners. For this reason, many buyers do not consider a home to be move-in ready if any of these systems will need to be replaced within a year or two. By ensuring that these major systems are in good condition, buyers can avoid costly repairs and have peace of mind knowing that they are purchasing a home that is truly move-in ready.

When it comes to a move-in ready kitchen, functionality is the most important aspect to consider. While shiny new appliances and high-end countertops may be desirable, they are not necessary for a kitchen to be considered move-in ready. What really matters is that the kitchen comes equipped with working appliances, functioning faucets, and adequate lighting and electrical outlets.

While outdated or worn cabinets and countertops may not be a dealbreaker, they can certainly be a turnoff for some buyers. However, minor cosmetic enhancements can be easily made after moving in, allowing buyers to make the space their own over time. What’s most important is that the kitchen is in good working order and ready for use upon move-in. By focusing on functionality rather than aesthetics, buyers can ensure that they are purchasing a home that is truly move-in ready.

Bathrooms are an essential part of any home, and their condition can have a significant impact on a buyer’s perception of the entire property. In order to be considered move-in ready, the bathrooms must be clean, well-maintained, and fully functional. This means that all plumbing should be in good working order, with no leaks, clogs, or other issues that could prevent normal use.

Sellers should pay close attention to the condition of the toilets, sinks, showers, and tubs in each bathroom. Any signs of damage or wear and tear should be addressed, and any necessary repairs should be completed before move-in. Additionally, bathrooms should be properly ventilated to prevent moisture buildup and potential mold issues. 

Ultimately, the key to a move-in ready bathroom is functionality. While aesthetic upgrades such as new tile or fixtures can certainly enhance the space, they are not necessary for a bathroom to be considered move-in ready. As long as the plumbing is in good working order, the drains are clear, and the space is clean and well-maintained, buyers can feel confident that they are purchasing a home with bathrooms that are ready for immediate use.

The condition of the floors can significantly impact a buyer’s perception of a property’s move-in readiness. Hardwood floors are particularly desirable among buyers, as they add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space. However, hardwood floors that are warped or buckled are a major red flag, as they can indicate structural issues or water damage. To be considered move-in ready, hardwood floors must be clean, well-maintained, and free of any noticeable damage.

Carpeted floors are also a popular choice for many homebuyers. Sellers should ensure that the carpets are relatively new and free of any dirt or damage. Old, worn-out carpets can be a major turn-off, and may even harbor allergens and other unpleasant substances. 

While a freshly painted house can be appealing to buyers, it’s not necessarily a requirement for a move-in ready home. As long as the existing paint job is in good condition, with no visible signs of damage or wear, it can be considered move-in ready. A fresh coat of paint can always be added later, allowing the new homeowners to personalize the space to their liking.

That being said, it’s important to consider the color of the walls. Bold or bright colors may not be everyone’s taste, so it’s advisable to stick to neutral colors that will appeal to a wider range of buyers. A lime green room might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s not a deal-breaker either. In the end, the goal of a move-in ready home is to provide a comfortable and functional living space without requiring any major renovations or repairs.
