Preparing your home for sale –  6 Easy ways to refresh and upgrade

1.  Uncover Hardwoods – Do you have hardwood floors under the carpet?  Hardwood floors are back in demand.  Consider removing your carpet to expose wood floors, combined with refinishing if necessary.

2.  Light Fixtures – Replacing older light fixtures with more modern, brighter, and energy efficient is one of the easiest things you can do.  This adds more warmth and friendliness to a room.

3.  Update Cabinet Hardware – This change can make a dramatic difference in the overall appearance of a room.  Hardware is relatively inexpensive and an easy do-it-yourself project.

4.  Replace Outlet Covers – This subtle change can add style to a room.  There are a wide variety of options to choose from and it can make a big impression.

5.  Painting – Painting walls and trim is the most obvious and dramatic way to change the mood of a room.  Take care to thoroughly prepare surfaces for a clean long-lasting finish.

6.  Potted Flowers – A pot of flowers on a front porch or step always looks welcoming. Planting a small evergreen in the center with annuals at the edges is an easy way to create a low maintenance pot that can be easily refreshed.
