5 Painless Handyman Hacks You'll Wish You Knew Sooner.
The condition of a home can have a big impact on its sale price and speed.
Here are 5 super easy handyman shortcuts you can start using today, that will make your listings look amazing:
1. ☆ Baseboards ☆
It's such a small detail, but it has a big impact on the sense of cleanliness when you walk in. Touch up stain or paint if needed.
To clean, just take a wet soapy rag and press firmly into baseboard. As you walk along, use your other hand to follow with a dry rag.
Done in 20 - 40minutes.
2. ☆ Declutter ☆
A cluttered home can make it look smaller and less appealing to buyers.
Piles in closets look better in neatly stacked boxes.
Sidetable items go into a decorative baskets.
Countertop appliances get put into cupboards.
3. ☆ Let there be light ☆
Replace dated glass globes and light covers instead of replacing the whole fixture.
Or, simply swap out light bulbs for full spectrum daylight bulbs 💡.
Remove old curtains and open up all the blinds.
4. ☆ Bad Smells Don't Sell ☆
Open every window, cupboard, drawer, closet and door. Turn on the fans.
Spraying the inside of the drawers and cupboards usually knocks out any funky house smell.
5. ☆Add some curb appeal.☆
The first impression is important.
To make sure your listings have good curb appeal, try to follow these two principles:
A) Every plant to itself.
Make sure each plant is clearly defined and has some space around it
B) Line it up.
Tops of hedges and shrubs = equal in height to top or bottom of windows.
Lower tree branches = equal to roof line or window line.
Clean lines between lawn, patios and curb and garden beds make a home look sharp. 👌
Following these handyman tips can help you make your listings look their best and sell them faster.
