What is Suggested for Selling Your Home?
Design a Home Office Space
This can be done in several different ways; you may wish to partition a current room with a divider or acrylic-block wall to establish a private area, or you may wish to create a home-office space as an individual room in the home. As employees are given more opportunities to work from home with flexible schedules, setting up a home office is becoming a crucial component for the way we live today.
Ceilings Can Act as a Wall in Your Room
You can really have fun with your ceilings and literally use them as an extra wall in your room. Consider accenting or embellishing them with paint colours, decorative finishes or pictures. Other options are to add beaded plywood for a unique look or easy to install ceiling medallions which can be a perfect accessory to your ceiling light fixture and/or fan. Get creative with your ceilings, they can do wonders with making your room pop.
Pay Attention to the Lawn
Remember that your front lawn may be the first thing visitors and potential buyers notice. Be sure they form a good impression right out of the gate! Be sure that your lawn is well cared for and manicured, shrubs and flower beds are clean, trimmed, and looking beautiful for maximum curb appeal. Buyers may unintentionally form an opinion on the home’s interior based on the look of the outside.
Replace old, leaky windows with Energy-Efficient Vinyl Windows

Increase Living Space
