With the chill in the air and snowy days on the horizon, we’re in our scarves and gloves wishing we could rewind back to summer. Since winter is sadly inevitable, it’s time to think about prepping your home for the season.
Making your home look high end doesn’t have to mean an empty wallet and an overwhelming amount of projects. Even on a budget you can create spaces that look like they came straight from a designer magazine.
Once you have found your dream home, an important step in the buying process is a home inspection. Unfortunately, your new home isn’t accident-proof, so you’ll want to address potential hazards before signing on the dotted line.
Staging your home is one of the easiest ways to add value during the selling process. Your real estate agent is your advisor and go-to in helping you make preparations, but there are techniques you can use to sell your home faster and for top dollar all on your own.
You may have heard that the housing market is on fire. It’s no joke — sellers are golden, it’s their market. Homes are selling in hours with multiple offers, so the landscape for a buyer is cutthroat. Buyers have to be prepared to make decisions on the spot, and expect to go through multiple offers before one sticks.
There’s upkeep involved in any place you live. When you’re renting, you don’t realize how much goes into maintaining a home. When the sink clogs or the hot water tank goes out, your landlord breezes in and takes care of the problem. These same issues (and more!) will arise in any home, whether it’s old or new.
Any homeowner will tell you that home improvements come in all sizes. From a coat of paint to tearing a whole wall down to open up the space, everything you do adds value to your home. Sometimes, the little things can make the biggest difference.
