When homeowners don’t want to put a lot of time and money into remodeling their home to make it more attractive to buyers there are still some things that they can do quickly and affordable that will make a big difference in how the home looks to buyers. If you have a seller that wants a quick sale but doesn’t have the budget for an extensive remodel or doesn’t want to put in a lot of time and effort suggest some of these easy, quick, and affordable interior upgrades that will really appeal to buyers:

New Countertops

It’s always a good idea to put a little money into fixing up the kitchen of the home before selling. Even if the seller doesn’t want to take on a full remodel they can give the kitchen a great facelift by having new countertops installed. Quartz countertops are very durable, affordable, and come in a lot of great colors and styles. Marbled quartz looks very similar to marble and yet is very family friendly. Butcher block countertops are another affordable but family-friendly kitchen upgrade that sellers should consider.

New Lighting

New light fixtures can be installed in as little as afternoon and they don’t cost a lot of money but they make a huge difference when it comes to the look and feel of the home. Swap outdated fixtures for trendy pieces that will make the home look more modern or choose timeless fixtures that will give the home an elegant look. Replace all the light bulbs too. Upgrading light fixtures is a great way to boost the appeal of the home without spending a lot of money.

Redo Grout

Even an old and outdated bathroom will look more appealing with fresh grout. Fresh grout looks clean and makes bathrooms and kitchens look bright instead of dingy and worn. You can add dark or colored grout if you want to give the bathroom or kitchen tile a modern look or stick with classic white grout for a clean and bright look that will make the bathroom and kitchen a lot more inviting to buyers who tour the home.

New Window Treatments

Old or faded curtains and builder’s special shades make a home look generic and dingy. Another easy way to increase the appeal of a home is to swap out old curtains for bright new white curtains or ditch the window treatments altogether so that the house is bathed in natural light. If there are builder grade shades on the windows replace those with Roman shades or upgraded wood slat shades or bamboo shades to add a personalized and unique touch that buyers will really notice.
