5 Home Must Haves

1. Kitchen

Not, not just any kitchen, an updated one. This means having nice cabinets, good flooring (tile) and updated appliances. We understand that this can pose an enormous cost, but it’s just what people are looking for. The kitchen is often called the center piece of home. Checkout this great guide on organizing your kitchen.

2. Clutter Free

Keep a lot of things inside your home or garage? Maybe time to rent a storage unit and get that stuff out of there. It’s a known fact that less is more and having a house that looks like it should be on an episode of hoarders, does not look good. Clean it out and keep it that way when showing.

3. No Carpets

Carpets are very 80’s. Besides the look of them, ¬†they attract dirt, stains, dust, pet hair and anything else that can be trapped in their fibers. The way to do things now is wood or tile. Wood flooring doesn’t have to be expensive, even laminate looks better than carpet.

4. Full Laundry

Still living in the 40’s without a dryer? Well it certainly won’t help your home. The home today is expected to have a washer, dryer and sink in a dedicated room. Making space for these appliances will really help to boost the selling price and bring in those bids.

5. Bathrooms

By bathrooms we mean, a few of them. A general rule you should follow is, 1 bathroom per 2 bedrooms and preferably an en-suite in the master. This is a great opportunity to turn any half bathrooms into full ones. The more bathrooms you have the higher of a price you can command. Small bathroom? This is how you organize one.
