Low Cost House Prep Selling Tips

Pressure washer – Dirt, mildew, and grime will inevitably accumulate on your house, porch, driveway, walkways, and fences over time. Rent a pressure washer from Home Depot and spray down these surfaces. You’ll be amazed at the difference.  I also have a Pressure Washer that I loan to clients.

Wash the windows – It’s easy to overlook the fingerprints and smudges on your windows. However, pulling out the window cleaner can make a huge difference both inside and outside the house, especially if it’s been a while since you last cleaned the windows.

Edge the lawn – If you’re looking for a cheap, easy way to make a big impact, this is it. Edging helps separate your lawn from your other plants, landscaping, and walkways, giving your yard a crisp, clean feel.  If you have never edged and do not have a good weedeater or edger I have one that I loan to clients.

Add mulch – Adding mulch to your plant beds and around your trees doesn’t just make them look great. It also helps block weeds and protects your plants from drought and frost.  The dump on Industrial just South of 183 sells Mulch in bulk and I have a trailer that I loan to clients.

Spruce up the doorway – Make your entryway more inviting by adding a bold, new door-knob, an elegant knocker, or a fresh coat of paint. Get a great doormat and a couple inviting statement pieces and your home is sure to wow visitors and make you feel at home! Kirkland’s is a good place to get a doormat and items to spruce up your home for showings.
