Easy and Inexpensive Upgrades to Sell or Improve Your Home

Easy fix-ups from your floors and walls to the kitchen and bath, Certified Community Experts know the high impact, but low-cost upgrades to sell your Minnetonka home. Once you have decided to move to a new home, there are several things you can do in order to make sure you will be able to sell your existing one for top dollar. Here are some suggestions for inexpensive, attractive renovations:



Upgrade before you paint. You can crown your walls with an easy to install molding that is made of lightweight, plaster-covered foam. They are easy to put in with helpful videos online, or your neighborhood home improvement store can advise.



Select a sheen. Satin or eggshell is best for walls and ceilings. They have low reflective qualities that help hide blemished or uneven surfaces. Also, the slight gloss makes them easy to clean, and stands up to abrasion.



Choose wood floors carefully. You can use wood floors in any room, just make sure there is no extreme humidity and moisture. Bedrooms are great for softer woods, such as cherry. Engineered wood works best in moisture-prone basements.



Pick the right rugs. When you are showcasing your home to potential buyers pick the right kind of traction. Needlepoint rugs should be limited to low-traffic areas, while wools work well in high-traffic areas. This will give them the idea, and also they will appreciate your attention to details.



Other tips for your Minnetonka home include: hanging your towel rack close to your tub and painting your kitchen cabinets rather then replacing the old wood. Keep following our blog for more home selling and buying tips for your lifestyle changes!
