Whether you are looking to sell your home or just want to increase its value, there are probably some quick fixes that can do the trick. Often, people think the only way to add value to their home is through big projects, such as updating a kitchen or bathroom, but there are many smaller things that could positively impact your offers. These projects often take little time or money and no specialized skills.


1. Prepare for different tastes

You may love that bold accent wall or unique color scheme, but potential buyers may not feel the same way. More neutral design choices tend to appeal to buyers because they let people focus on the home's other features and picture themselves living there. If you have an unusual paint or wallpaper choice, consider covering it up before putting your house on the market. Try to create a home that is going to appeal to the widest variety of people. You may even want to remove particularly unusual temporary items, such as artwork or furniture, before showing your house to buyers.
