Are you getting ready to sell your home? If so, it’s important that you prepare your home so that you can get the most from it. The better prepared you are, the higher you can mark the price tag. You don’t want to end up spending more money than you get back on the sale. So how should you invest your time? Read on for some quick and easy home fixes that can really increase your market value.

Change The Color

Nothing helps a home look new like a fresh coat of paint. You can of course just paint the walls white, but if you really want the most bang for your buck, you should try a few different colors. In the kitchen, try to use earthy tones and consider incorporating reds and oranges. These give a homey feel and stimulate the appetite. Avoid blues as it tends to suppress the appetite.

In the living room, think of the vibe you are going for. Light colors help the room seem larger, dark colors will give a cozier feel to the room. For the bathroom, consider light blues and seafoam greens that can give off the vibe of a spa. For the bedrooms, try out some relaxing colors like blues, greens, and earth tones.


You can’t stage your home successfully if it isn’t sparkling clean. You need to clean your home inside and out. You don’t want to miss something and risk a potential buyer noticing, that could be embarrassing. Do a quick internet search for a complete list of things to clean and easy tips for getting it done. While you're cleaning, take steps to ensure that your home is free of pests. Using a few easy methods to keep bugs under control can help protect your buyers from seeing something upsetting.

Replace Your Carpet

You may have gotten used to your carpet the way it is, so take a good long critical look at it. Is it stretched out in places, wrinkled, stained, ripped, fraying, faded, or out-of-date? When a buyer walks into your home, the floor is one of the first things they’ll notice. To make sure you leave a good impression, consider replacing the carpet. You don’t need to break the bank, just buy a cheap carpet with a nice look. It only needs to last until you sell. The next owners will probably change the carpets, so this one is just for show.

Selling a home and moving to a new one can be a stressful experience. You can make your life a lot easier by taking these steps to prep your home for the market. You’ll feel more confident staging your home and walk away with more money in your pocket.
