Make Valuable Updates
Replace faded, peeling or torn wallpaper, in fact eliminate as much wallpaper as you can. We are not trying to appeal to the small group of buyers that may like it, we are trying to appeal to everyone.
Repair, replace or paint worn woodwork.
Paint a neutral color over walls that look old or were previously painted too boldly.
Paint and Carpet is the biggest bang for your buck if you are on a budget and had to pick some updates
If you are not on a budget, kitchens and baths sell homes, PERIOD!
