It's officially fall and the holidays are right around the corner, so I wanted to show you some things you can do to increase your home’s resale value. 

Let's take a look at some before and after photos to see how important it is to concentrate on two areas that most people don't think about that can get spooky–your basement and garage. You want your home to look like a model home that no one has ever lived in, so you don't want any cobwebs creating a creepy feeling!

Let's start with a living room example. In the video above, you can see the difference that 15 minutes of decluttering can make in making this living room more marketable online.

In the next photo, you can see another 'before' photo of a messy living room. We removed everything but the desk from the room, painted it our secret color and painted the woodwork white. How much more beautiful is that room now? Now, this room will attract buyers; it wouldn’t have before. 

Next, take a look at this small galley kitchen's 'before' photo. We simply moved everything in the kitchen to the dining room table and now we can actually see this kitchen and its real size. We took it a step further by painting the cabinets the same color and adding hardware, and it looks like a brand new kitchen! This house sold one day after coming on the market! 

Our next example is another kitchen. The whole kitchen was messy and cluttered and the cabinetry was outdated, so we painted them a nice color called 'mocha,' added hardware, and painted the trim white. Brown trim does not sell in today's market!

In the next example, you can see a basement before it was staged. We got rid of everything in the room but the foosball table and changed the walls from a bold red to a neutral color. This shows just how important it is to clean out your basement, closets, and garage. So let's take a look at a garage in the next example. They actually used this 'before' photo on the MLS before we took the listing over. We cleaned out the garage and painted it, and buyers loved it! 

In this next basement 'before' photo, you can see an awful basement that was moldy, dark, and dreary. We cleaned up the floors and brightened the walls with some paint, and you can easily see how much better it looks. Our final example shows how much better a basement looks after replacing outdated dark wood doors with some white six-panel doors.

These are the things that will cause a home to sell. The houses that I showed you today were all on the market for around 150 days, but after some of my creative marketing, I sold these homes for the same price.

A little bit of marketing went a long way with these homes.
