Selling a Home in the Dark part 2
Deep Clean: A Few Places You Might Forget About
Clean inside the cabinet beneath your sink. It’s likely they’ll glance at the plumbing, and they’ll notice if the plumbing and inside of the cabinet are dirty. Clean it well, consider adding a new piece of shelf liner on the bottom, and install slide out drawers or extra utility that’ll be appealing. Make shower heads look like new. Dust ceiling fan blades and the inside of your dishwasher and washing machine. Don’t forget all the nooks and crannies in the kitchen.
Contrary to many pro recommendations, I’m not a huge fan of painting walls neutral colors to make a home more salable. A light-colored interior will reflect more light than a dark one, and that may make all the difference on a gloomy, cool day.
If the walls look dingy or dated, refresh the look of a room with a $25 can of satin or eggshell.
