West Chester, OH, April 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Preparing a home for sale properly can net considerably more money at closing. Some rooms in a home are more important than others in the preparation process and some home improvements are a much better investment as one prepares to sell your home.
A great place to start is with the home's curb appeal. This is the potential home buyer's first impression of the home. There are a number of ways to improve the exterior look of a home. A fresh coat of paint gives an overall clean, crisp, well maintained appearance. Paint the front door, trim and shutters. Make the entrance seem inviting. Buy a new welcome mat and hang a wreath on the front door. It there is room, place furniture and add planters or flower boxes to the front porch.
Upgrade hardware items such as the mailbox, door knocker, and exterior lights. Lighting outside the front door is both inviting and a safety feature. If there are numbers on the house, make sure they are clean and easy to read. Home improvement stores have decorative numbers that can be placed on the front of the house.
Renew the flower beds by weeding and adding new mulch. Edge around the planter beds. A rock or brick trim around the edges can give a neat and attractive look to the gardens. Spruce up the area around the mailbox with flowers and plants.
