Five Cost-Effective Ways to Attract Buyers

  1. Think Green. Better insulation, replacing old windows, and caulking can increase the energy efficiency of the home and can be attractive to buyers.
  2. Add Molding. Crown molding, wider baseboards, and framing doors and widows can be delightful in any home.
  3. Paint Finishes. Faux finishes and accented walls can help your home stand out. Don’t get carried away; pick the color and texture wisely, keeping in mind that you are trying to make your home universally appealing.
  4. Upgrade Floors. Dirty or old flooring can turn buyers away. Consider new carpet, tile, or wood. Refinishing existing flooring or professionally shampooing carpets can bring them back to life.
  5. Outdoor Upgrades. A deck, or even a summer kitchen at certain price points, can add value to your home. The worth of different outdoor amenities varies from place to place, so be sure to get a professional opinion from your local agent before taking on a big project.
