GRIFFIN, Georgia – Most kitchens can benefit from even just one or two small changes, simply to make it look fresh again. Fresh looking rooms can make a big difference with buyers, so consider these small improvements to add big value! Here are some ways that you can do this in a very cost-effective manner. – Instead of an entire renovation, consider replacing just one big thing. Your counter tops. You will be amazed at the variety of what is available now and at the incredible range of prices too. Counter tops remain one of the few things that will actually help sell a home.

  • New Counter tops – Instead of an entire renovation, consider replacing just one big thing. Your counter tops. You will be amazed at the variety of what is available now and at the incredible range of prices too. Counter tops remain one of the few things that will actually help sell a home.
  • Update Small Appliances – If you chose not to make that one large replacement, consider making a bunch of small ones! Keep all of your counter top appliances such as your coffeemaker, toaster and blender all in the same finish. Coordinating these very visible things really makes a big difference in the orderliness of your kitchen’s look.
  • Window treatments – Don’t forget to add or update the treatments on your kitchen’s windows as they really can pull the whole design of your kitchen together, as well as add shade or privacy when needed.
  • Lighting Fixtures – Get rid of that tired old 1980’s ceiling fixture in exchange for a pretty chandelier or a row of chic pendants, and try not to smile every time you enter your “new” kitchen, and just imagine the similar effect that Buyers will experience!
  • Paint – Whether you really need to or not, who doesn’t love the look of freshly painted walls in a new color?
  • Under-Cabinet Lights – Easy to install puck lights are the way to go on this one.
  • Sink Faucet – There are so many beautiful models to choose from and most of the new models can save you money on water and energy costs to boot, savings that are passed on to Buyers!
  • Cabinet Hardware – Changing cabinet hardware just so happens to be the easiest way to update your kitchen. Imagine simple nickel cabinet pulls in place of the dated ceramic ones you currently have.

6792950847_0f33b19251_bBoth these large and small improvements can change the entire feeling buyers have when entering your Georgia home, so consider them in your assessment of the investments you want to make. I am always here to provide council on the home improvements that will help sell your home so feel free to email me anytime!

Unknown-1GRIFFIN, Georgia – Whether you are planning to put your home on the market or are just looking for cost effective ways to increase your home’s curb appeal or its value, landscaping is key. Real Estate experts report that mature trees and a well-landscaped yard can increase your home’s value by 10-25%. Poorly landscaped homes actually detract value from that home. Here are some ways to start making your landscaping work for you:

  • Critical is the tidy, well-maintained lawn. Patchy and/or bald-spotted lawns are screaming for help. They need regular seeding, aerating and fertilizing. Mow it regularly and during peak growing season but never cut away more than a third of the blade each time you mow.
  • Invest in a larger tree. Mature trees add significant value as they provide shade, privacy and major aesthetic appeal.
  • Always stay on top of pruning, but avoid over-pruning your shrubs into ball or square shapes.
  • Keep beds weeded and mulched for that neat, tidy look.
  • Be consistent about weeding in between pavers and concrete cracks.
  • Keep your lawn clutter-free. No unused children’s play toys, empty plant containers or junk about.
  • Plant annuals for colors that will last all season.
  • Always sweep your porch and deck or patio. Power-wash all surfaces if necessary.

UnknownGRIFFIN, Georgia – Believe it or not, the quality of air in your home while it is on the market can have a large subconscious impact on the impression potential buyers have of your home, as it is a concern to many buyers today. Homeowners today are ultra-conscious of the quality of air in their homes, since we spend so much time indoors. Here are some ways that you can achieve superior air quality while improving your family’s respiratory health.

  • Basement: Since the furnace is in this space, you must have it inspected and cleaned yearly to avoid leakage of dangerous gases. Also, many basements can be damp and therefore may grow mold. You must make sure your gutters are doing their job of keeping water runoff away from your home. Installing a dehumidifier or air conditioner can keep even the moistest basement dry.
  • Garage: Install a weatherproof door between this room and the rest of your home. It will keep gasoline odors where they belong. Your lungs and potential buyers will thank you.
  • Kitchen: If you have a gas range, you must have a hood fan that exhausts outdoor air. Turning on that fan, or simply opening a window while cooking will remove gas fumes. All fuel burning appliances must be professionally inspected to prevent possible carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Pet odors: These need to be kept to an absolute minimum, especially in wet weather. When in doubt, have someone else come take a walk through and give you an honest opinion. So often we get used to those odors in our homes, and don’t realize just how noticeable they are.
  • Family/Living Room: Dust accumulation can be simply eliminated with the reduction of clutter. Keeping toys, books and other items nicely stored away in closets is the way to go.
  • Bedrooms: Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Dust mites and allergens are also greatly reduced by washing bedding in hot water. Choose area rugs that are easy to wash. Also consider steam-cleaning rugs before showing your home, reducing any bad odor and improving the air quality in your home.
  • Bathrooms: Ventilation is so important in this well-used room. Exhaust fans work to remove moisture and chemicals that you clean with. Change your cleaning products to ones that have no pesticides or toxic ingredients. See grist.org for a list of green bathroom cleaners.
  • Attic: Have your duct work inspected if it runs through an uninsulated attic. Why? Because humid air condenses and can cause mold and rust. Consider having your attic insulated.

Throughout your home always leave doors between rooms open for better air circulation Opening windows from time to time is also quite important to the overall maintenance of your home. Today’s homes have become, by design, so “tight” that the air can easily get stale. Yes, air conditioning is great, but it really is so great to just open the windows from time to time and let the house breath. Fresh air wins out with Buyers each and every time.
