While you may think of renovating your home for sale as a daunting task, there are a number of fast, easy fixes that are also inexpensive. Sometimes these small changes can get your home sold fast at full listing instead of having to re-list multiple times at lower figures. Follow these simple tips and with the help of the Lee Tessier team, your home WILL be sold for the RIGHT price.

  • We have a property stager who meets with ALL of our clients and provides them with an itemized repair sheet
  • It’s up to you what you do with this list, but some of these simple, cost-effective measures can vastly improve the value of your home
  • One of the easiest improvements you can make is with paint.  Investing in a color change in one or more rooms of your home can dramatically increase its appeal to customers which can increase its value
  • Another simple improvement is carpet. One way to entice potential buyers is with clean, soft carpet. You don’t NEED to get new carpet, either. Simply getting rid of ripples and bunches by stretching  your current carpet can give it a whole new look and feel
  • Finally, simple fixes like replacing old brass knobs and light fixtures with new, copper pieces can greatly improve the value of your home
