When you have to sell your house, you want to make the most you can and do it as fast as possible. Of course, moving is also very expensive, and you don’t want to put a lot of work into your home that won’t necessarily pay off. Fortunately, there are plenty of things homeowners can do to make their place more appealing to buyers that take only a little effort and even less cash. We’ve outlined some of our favorite home improvement projects anyone putting their house on the market should consider doing.
When it comes to making DIY home projects affordable, your best friend is paint. A gallon of paint costs as little as $30 depending on the brand, so your time is the biggest cost when it comes to this project. Vinyl and linoleum floors can make your house look cheap. Painting vinyl floors a bold color or pattern gives your home a cool and modern look that appeals to buyers.
By adding mirrors throughout the home, you don’t just make the place look larger. When people tour the place, they will constantly be seeing themselves in it… literally! A great way to add mirrors to your place without spending too much money is by securing cheap, framed mirrors to doors with the frames and doors painted to match. This is especially great for closet doors, where that last-minute reflection can catch outfit snafus before heading outside.
When it comes to staging a home to sell, all real estate agents suggest two things: get rid of personal items and declutter like there is no tomorrow. When it comes to personal things like pictures, diplomas, and souvenirs, you may not be ready to get rid of a lot of them. However, you still want them out of sight and out of mind while you are showing the house. Get a head start on packing by boxing these items up and keeping them in an off-site storage unit where they can be safe and secure until it is time to relocate.
However, when it comes to extra items that have no sentimental value, it’s time to get tough. Decluttering your home means getting rid of anything that doesn’t have a purpose in your life. Eliminate thoughts of “what if” or “maybe in the future.” If you need something in the future, you can buy a new one when that moment comes. For now, it can either go in the trash or to a local charity, wherever it best serves its purpose. Best of all, this project costs you absolutely nothing and will cut down on your packing once you finally sell!
Tips for decluttering:
If you want your house to look great and sell faster, you don’t have to put a lot of money in it. You can give cheap vinyl floors a chic update with not much more than a can of paint. If you want your house to look bigger while appealing to more people, add mirrors throughout the place. Finally, the most cost-effective way to make your house look great to buyers is by clearing out clutter. Box up and store sentimental items, but be ruthless when it comes to letting go of things that do not “spark joy.”

I do so much every day. I have two companies to run. I am on TV and radio. I am a Professional Organizer, Life Coach, Recording artist…You get the picture. In order for me to do all these things and more, I have to be structured and organized. But what if I wasn’t organized? I am scared to think what would happen! Many of you out there have a lot of things going on. It is my hope you are being organized, but what if you are a person reading this who is not organized?
I ask you how it is working for you? Or not working for you? Do you double book plans? Are you forgetful and miss appointments or are always running late to them? Do you go to the store and forget what you need to buy? Is it an extra ten minutes to find the car keys everyday/
All of that would drive me crazy.If you aren’t organized, think about how it makes you feel on any given day. Anger, frustration, sadness, broke…how does it effect your mood for the day? Well consider getting organized. It makes your life run smoother! Read this blog, if you are in LA, come take my workshops, hire a Professional Organizer. Begin the process of changing your life into an organized one!
