									Home Improvement - Preparing A House For Sale
Home improvement projects are not only great ways for the family to enjoy everyday in the most
comfortable, functional, efficient and even luxurious way. These can also increase the saleability as
well as profits that you get out of selling your home. If you are one among those homeowners who
plan to let go of your New York property, then make the best out of this investment. So whether you
are in Long Island, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, or Staten Island; take advantage of home
improvements that pay back.
Though home improvements generally make your house more functional and appealing, not all will
result to a return nor a power to attract that is universal. As you you will be spending a good amount
of time, effort and money; it is crucial that you give enough thought on which projects best to
undertake. The keywords would be clean and neutral to enhance the buyer's thought of having the
place as his or her own. To help you out prepare for a sale to engage multiple possible buyers, attract
higher offers and sell in the shortest time possible.
Maximize Curb Appeal
When selling a house, first impressions do last. A dirty and unattractive yard has never been a good
welcome especially to prospective buyers. If this is the first scene to greet them, chances of you
enticing them to look further inside as well as closing the sale is definitely slim. Even if you have
poured everything in beautifying the inside of your home, but has left the outside unattended, the
negative impression will have a lingering effect on the person looking at the property and will
eventually affect his/her decision. Other than tidying things up, here are other beneficial tasks to
• replace damaged or missing shingles
• clean and align gutters and downspouts properly
• recaulk windows and doors
• clean chimney
• reseal driveway
• consider planting annual blooms in pots, place especially near the entrance
Freshen Up Your Kitchen and Bathroom
Being the most used areas of the house, the kitchen and bathroom are considered the key selling
points to any residential property. But when undertaking kitchen and bathroom remodeling, keep in
mind that spending too much is a big no-no. It would be unwise to be replacing major fixtures and
features such as appliances and other such items and doing so will not pay off. The essentials to
focus on include
• replacing lighting, faucets and other visible and functional fixtures
• refacing cabinets
• hire professional cleaning service to get rid of stains, mildew on grout and watermarks
Keep It Looking "As Good As New"

outdated or worn out. Evaluate every corner of the house, look out for the following and repair as

• rusted faucets and sinks
• mold and mildew
• peeling or blistering paint
• beat up hardwood surfaces such as floors, cabinets, countertops and others
• leaks in the attic and basement
