Whenever you invite someone into your home, the first place you take them to is your kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s where memories are made, and after the living room, it’s one of the most warm and welcoming elements of a home.
For under $1,000 you can make slight adjustments to the aesthetic parts of the kitchen, potentially boosting your sales price. Give your kitchen a pick me up by changing the cabinet handles, switching up light bulbs, or even replacing your current faucet. These small changes make a big difference when it comes to the gaze of potential home buyers. A coat of paint on the walls or cabinets can make a big change to the appeal of this main part of the home.

A home’s bathroom is another room that tends to get a little more attention than others, possibly because it gives an insight into the overall cleanliness and maintenance of a home. This is the one area of a home that needs to look its best, so it’s worth looking into. You can spruce up your bathroom by purchasing a new toilet seat or replace chipped or worn out tiles in the bathtub or shower.
However, if you really want to make an impression indulge your love for interior design and splurge on some new bathroom decor. This could be candles, fresh hand towels, or a new rug, anything that’ll make your bathroom look its best.

Simply take a tour of your home and jot down anything that you think might need a little tweak, then go from there.

Another way you can boost your sales price in a cost effective manner is by giving your home a spruce through a fresh coat of paint, both inside and out.
