It might seem counter intuitive to put money and time into your Fox River Valley home once you've decided to sell. But, it is one of the best things you can do to help your home sell quickly and for top dollar! Attract buyers and stand out from the competition with these Design Tips to Sell.



Update Curb Appeal: Just like anything else in life, it is important to make a great first impression. This starts with your curb appeal. Wash and paint the exterior of your home. Take care of your landscaping. Add some welcoming touches to your front porch to invite buyers in.

Showcase Your Home: Although it might seem like you have to modernize everything in your home to sell, you should highlight your home's tradtional elements. These structural and/or design details will keep your home unique and memorable.

Add Some Paint: The cheapest thing you can do to give your home a fresh start is by applying some new paint. Just always keep it neutral to avoid turning off any potential buyers.

Think Eco-Friendly: Energy efficient features are increasingly popular amongst home buyers. These features not only help our environment but they also help a home owner's wallet when it comes to their energy bill.

Update Bathrooms and Kitchen: The few rooms that you should consider investing more money into are your bathrooms and kitchen. These are key rooms that buyers look at to determine whether or not they want to buy the home. It doesn't have to be complete remodels. You can do more basic updates, such as changing hardware and light fixtures.

Add Master Bedroom Closets: A large walk in closet off of the master bedroom is a selling feature for buyers. If your home does not have one, find a way to add one to increase the value of your home.

Find New Storage Spaces: All home owners are always looking for new storage solutions. Be creative with it. Find new spaces, such as under the stairs, to add storage to your home.

Create Space: You always want your home to feel as large as possible when showing it to buyers. A great way to create the perception of space is by placing your furniture in groupings away from the wall.

Hire An Organizer: While you can declutter your home on your own, it can be to your benefit to hire a professional organizer. They have tips to help make your home larger, find new storage solutions, and will help you get rid of the items you really don't need.
