5 DIY Projects to Prep Your Home to Sell

Instead of focusing on major renovations that are expensive and time consuming, consider taking on a few inexpensive projects to make your home more appealing to potential buyers and help you sell.

  1. Improve Storage Space: Buyers will be interested in checking out the storage options in a home. Ways to make storage spaces appear larger include:
  • Empty out half of your closets and add a closet organizer
  • Remove junk in the garage and crawl spaces
  • Add organizers in your cabinets
  • Improve bathroom storage by adding additional cabinets or over-the-toilet storage
  1. Fresh Paint: A fresh coat of paint can easily make a room feel updated. Neutral paint colors will allow buyers to picture making the space their own.
  2. Less furniture: Remove extra furniture to make rooms feel larger but leave enough to showcase a room’s purpose. Removing extra leaves from a dining table can also make the space feel larger.
  3. Update fixtures: Think door knobs, light fixtures, outlet and light switch plates especially in the kitchen and bathrooms.
  4. Make a great first impression: Improve your home’s curb appeal by repainting faded window trim, trimming shrubs, planting bright colored flowers, and even updating your mailbox. Besides curb appeal, also consider your home’s entry way. Adding a bench and rug are two easy ways to make your entry way seem more welcoming.
