If a homeowner wants to sell their home fast they may not be willing to put time or money into renovations. But updating some features of the home and giving it a style upgrade will help it to sell home faster. There are some upgrades that are very much on-trend that can be done quickly and without investing a lot of money. When you are working with a seller that wants a quick sale and doesn’t want to put a lot of time or money into renovations suggest these fast style fixes:

Paint The Kitchen Cabinets

Getting the kitchen cabinets painted is an affordable upgrade that can be done in a weekend. Colored kitchens are very popular right now and a fresh coat of paint is a fantastic way to disguise really outdated cabinets and make them look modern and appealing. Popular kitchen colors right now include green, pink, blue, gray, and red in all shades and color combinations. Adding a pop of color in the kitchen is a smart way to make an older kitchen appealing to buyers.

Reclaimed Wood Flooring

LOOKING TO SELL HOME FASTReclaimed wood flooring is a fast fix because it can be laid pretty quickly and it doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, it’s the scuff marks, mill marks, and patina that makes it interesting and desirable. Reclaimed wood floors make a home more inviting and give any room a warm vintage charm that is very popular with buyers right now. Replace outdated or mismatched flooring with reclaimed wood flooring to get immediate interest in a home. Reclaimed wood flooring is also environmentally friendly which can be a good selling point for buyers that are interested in environmental responsibility.

Replace The Countertops

Replacing the countertops is another fast kitchen fix that adds a lot of value to a home. Updated quartz countertops in stylish colors are affordable and can be installed quickly to make older or outdated kitchens look a lot better to potential buyers. Durable quartz countertops are a great upgrade because they are easy to maintain and will look great for years to come.

Get Rid Of Carpets

Wall to wall carpet, especially in areas like the living room, is a big turn off to modern buyers. Many younger buyers want homes with wood or laminate flooring that is easy to keep clean and won’t collect dust and allergens the way that carpet can. Ripping out old carpet and choosing new flooring is a smart upgrade that can be done quickly by a professional. If the seller won’t go for ripping out the old carpets then they should at least be professionally cleaned and sanitized before any potential buyers tour the home.
