Getting the Highest Price for Your Home:
Here are a few tips to increase the curb appeal of your home. Staging your home is important. Many buyers will stay in your home longer if it's staged appropriately. I have compiled some ideas to present your home in the most effective manner.

Freshen Up:
Potential buyers often look for obvious signs of neglect, such as leaky roofs, water damage or crumbling foundations. But even without those problems, making your home look like new again can be as simple as applying a fresh look like new again can be as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Cooking, smoking and everyday living can discolor and fade your ceilings and walls, making your home seem old and unattractive. It's amazing what a fresh coat of color can do to improve a home's appearance and don't forget to touch up your white baseboards, trim and ceilings to make each room look its best.

Stay Grounded:
As much time as they spend looking up, potential buyers also spend time looking down. Flooring has a drastic effect on a home's selling power, and an outdated or poorly maintained floor can ruin a room's appeal. If your home has hardwood floors, remove old carpeting and finish the wood beneath it. This is a great selling feature you should invest in highlighting. If you do not have hardwood floors, update your old carpeting with a neutral shade. Replace any cracked or chipped ceramic tiles in kitchens and bathrooms, and thoroughly clean or replace the grout on all tiled surfaces as well.

Shower Power:
You may have heard that bathroom updates have some of the biggest returns when it comes time to sell a home, and it's true. According to CBS MoneyWatch.com, homeowners can expect to recover about 75 percent of minor bathroom remodel costs. So invest in a faucet, shower head, cabinetry and a new light fixture to add to your "new" bathroom's appeal. Have a half-bath? Consider adding a shower to make it a full; this will make your home much more marketable.

Curb Appeal:
First impressions can have a huge impact on buyers' decisions, so make sure your home is as attractive from the street as possible. Curb appeal is key and could make a difference whether people stop and take a flyer or drive right by. If your cement sidewalk or patio areas have cracks, patch them with a kit from your local hardware store. Resurface an asphalt driveway and make certain your garage doors and exterior are freshly painted. Remember, your front door is the first thing a buyer will see. Consider repainting it a bold color that invites them in, and don't overlook replacing your door knob if it is in poor shape.

With a few updates around your home, you can greatly increase its perceived value and appeal to buyers. Put some time and resources into these key areas and you'll soon reap the benefits of your investment.
