3.) Presentation – Painting, landscaping, polishing the tiles, changing light switch covers etc are a few things that can instantly improve the appearance of your house, without making a hole in your pocket.
4.) Furniture Groupings – Reposition your furniture into cozy conversational groups, while allowing space for free movement. This can make your rooms appear larger and user-friendly.
5.) Lighting – Ensure that you have proper lighting in each room – bulbs, table lamps and high wattage tubes can give a new life to each room and make them more appealing for Fremont real estate buyers.
6.) Color Tones – For Living room and hallway ‘neutral’ colors are the best as they create an illusion of space, but you can try using deeper colors for bedrooms to give them a cozy and welcoming effect.
7.) Safeguard your Privacy – Once you have put up your house ‘for sale’ in the Fremont real estate market, be prepared to handle a lot of visitors. Keep all expensive stuff and precious items inside your cupboard, drawers that contain personal papers should be locked and so on.
8.) Kitchen – A well-organized and appealing kitchen can sell homes like hot cakes. Re-polish your kitchen counter tops, replace old knobs, clean cabinets and remove all the unnecessary clutter. Also use simple cooking ingredients that do not emit strong odor.
