home updates to make before selling
Updating your home before listing it in the Brainerd Lakes Area could help it sell quickly and for money. Improvements allow for eye-catching photos, which helps a property stand out on Minnesota real estate websites.
With a strategic plan for home improvement, updating a house before selling it and moving doesn’t have to be cost-prohibitive.
Easy ways to update your property:

Interior Walls
A fresh coat of paint helps cover dirty or scuffed walls. Focusing on high-visibility areas like the living room, kitchen, entry, etc., gives a great first impression.

Refinishing wood floors, replacing linoleum or cleaning carpets can go a long way.

Curb Appeal
There are relatively painless ways to improve your home’s exterior. A new welcome mat, painting or staining fences and railings, adding flowers or even replacing the mailbox can make a difference.

Upgrade cabinet and drawer hardware, reface cabinets, replace faucets, add a backsplash and reface or paint your cabinets.

Increasing the amount of light in your home can make it seem bigger. Brightness gives an illusion of a larger space. Leverage natural light with a few mirrors for reflection, remove heavy drapes, or update window treatments.
