DIY ideas to fix up your South Nashua home for sale

When you are selling your South Nashua home for sale, some simple fixes can be very important to help reel in a buyer. The more appealing your home looks to the eyes, the more likely you will be to get a bite.

Here are a few ideas on how to stage your home when you are selling!

Bathroom

The bathroom is always a big seller for South Nashua buyers. Try to make it look as clean as possible! If the walls are dirty or moldy spray them with a mixture of one part bleach, and one part water. The mold will disappear! Be sure to wipe them down after, and apply a coat of semi-gloss paint to make the walls easier to clean.

Clean all that yucky grime off of your glass shower door. You can start by removing the door and cleaning it with a mixture of ten parts water, and one part muriatic acid. Scrub it, then reattach the door, this will have it sparkling like new in no time! Or better yet get rid of the door and just put up a shower curtain in it's place. This will give your South Nashua home for sale a more modern look.

If your tile is gross and needs to be replaced, don’t spend all your money redoing the bathroom, that would cost a fortune! Simply scrub the tile and then add a coat of sealer to make it more manageable next time.

Buyers like it when they can see every square foot of your bathroom. If you have a big vanity that takes up too much space, replace it with a pedestal sink and a mirror on the wall! Or if you need the storage just get a smaller sink with a few drawers. It will make your bathroom appear larger and will look perfect for your showings!

Kitchen & Dining Room

Nobody wants to eat food in a dirty kitchen, and especially not in a run down dining room. You should always make sure that your kitchen looks nice whether you are selling your South Nashua home or not. Instead of replacing old cabinets, sand them down and add a few nice coats of stain or paint to them. Before you know it they will look brand new, and this will be very appealing to a buyer.

Stainless steel appliances are a new trend that buyers love. Instead of buying a new dishwasher, microwave, or oven, take a trip to your local hardware store and purchase stainless steel stick on covers! They are easy to apply and they look fantastic. First, remove the front panels from the appliances you decide to cover. After that, apply a stainless steel stick on covering, and cut it to size. Your appliances will go from outdated to modern in no time at all!

Who wouldn’t want granite counter tops in the Granite State? They are absolutely gorgeous, and there is a way to get them so much cheaper rather than having to pay a boat load for them. (unless of course you prefer to fully replace them.) There are stick-ons for your countertops too! Visit your local hardware store and choose the one that will match your kitchen the best!

There is a way to make your hardwood floors look more dramatic, and it is so simple! First, find which boards are damaged, cut them out and replace them with new pieces. Use a sander and give the floor a good sanding. Then the last step is to stain the boards with a rich color, and there you go! Beautiful hardwood floors are always a plus with buyers!

Bedroom & Living Room

Do you have a fireplace in your South Nashua home for sale? Is it brick or stone? Either way, I’m sure that a little update would help sell your South Nashua home for sale! If you have a stone fireplace wipe it down with a rag and water, and then use some stone polish to make it sparkle like new.

You don't want to cover the bricks completely with paint but give it a more dulled down look, and your fireplace will go from sticking out to standing out in just a few simple steps! Also be sure to replace your old fireplace screen, or just touch it up with a few coats of spray paint to match your room!

When you are selling your South Nashua home for sale, you should make sure that your master bedroom appeals to buyers. Get rid of features that seem too gender-specific, and paint the walls a neutral color. Choose bedding and accessories that match and pull the whole scheme together.

Buyers love built-in bookshelves. There are a lot of people who use bookshelves to store their clutter, but when you are selling you need to use every aspect of your home to the best of its ability. The trick with a bookshelf is to arrange neutral items in clusters, and be sure that none of your accessories stand out too much. This way you'll show off your beautiful built-in bookshelves, but not all your clutter or personal belongings.

Exterior

When you are selling your South Nashua home for sale the first thing a buyer will see is the exterior! Touch up the outside of your South Nashua home for sale by replacing the shutters, painting your house, or replacing any cracked siding.

You want it to look it beautiful for your showings as well as for buyers driving by your neighborhood.
