If you are thinking about listing your home for sale, it might feel overwhelming to think about updates you need to make before you get it on the market. We’ve rounded up four ways to make your home really standout to buyers – and they are easy!

Give Them Curb Appeal. Freshen up your landscape, pull weeds, mow the lawn, trim the bushes and lay down fresh mulch to give potential buyers the best first impression as possible! Refresh the paint on your door (and maybe pick a new pop of color!) to invite them in. Add some hanging baskets on your front porch with beautiful, colorful flowers, and put a new, clean welcome mat at your door.

Exterior

Replace Bathroom Mirrors. A sure sign of an outdated bathroom are old, gross mirrors. Replacing them with something more modern and new will freshen up the space. Other bathroom tips? Replace the shower curtain (with something clean and neutral) and switch out your linens with new white towels. Replacing your bathroom fixtures like faucets and shower heads will also go a long way!

Install Ceiling Fans. Buyers love practical and beautiful ceiling fans. If your home does not already have them, consider adding them to your living room and bedrooms.

Tone Down Bright Colors. While you don’t need to repaint your entire house, if you have some rooms with especially loud colors (think: kid’s rooms), consider repainting them to something more neutral. Chances are the buyers would be planning to do this anyway, so cross this off their to-do list from the start.
