Bang For Your Buck Experts Discuss The Best And Worst In Remodeling Investments And Home Staging
Bang for Your Buck Experts Discuss the Best and Worst in Remodeling Investments and Home StagingDesigner Monica Pedersen gives advice on what to do when selling your home. Real estate expert Elizabeth Sincox weighs in on Monica's advice – sometimes the two agree, and sometimes they don’t.
Monica: Freshen up your home’s curb appeal with mature landscaping and dark-brown mulch or simply invest in two oversized urns to accommodate year-round plantings.
Elizabeth: Also, clear away cobwebs around the door. You can only make one first impression.
Monica: Spending money on plantings that won’t survive through the seasons. Flowerbeds filled with dead annuals don’t say much to buyers during the fall and winter months.
Elizabeth: I disagree with my friend here. I think a few flats of flowers go a long way and are so much more inexpensive. Landscaping can cost thousands of dollars and you won't see a return on your money for a few years
Monica: Reface or replace worn kitchen cabinets.
Elizabeth: Yes and no. Reface or paint old cabinets for sure. However, replacing can cost thousands of dollars.
Monica: Repainting unsalvageable cabinetry to save money. A new coat of paint can only go so far. Elizabeth and I disagree on this one. There is an abundance of affordable cabinetry out there for someone who is willing to get their hands dirty in order to get a return on this investment. The hunt is half the fun.
Elizabeth: Older cabinets are most often solid maple or oak. If you have to, replace only the doors or have a carpenter add a trim frame to the outside then caulk and paint the cabinets. It will cost hundreds verses thousands of dollars.TOMORROW: 2 more tips on staging your home for quick saleDid you know I am a Certified Staging Coach? When you are ready to list, give me a call.
