Living Room Improvements That Appeal To Buyers

If you’re selling your home, you need to make sure that your

spaces are inviting and updated. The living room is the focal

point of your home so ensuring that prospective buyers see

the rooms full potential is a must. Here are a few living room

improvements that will attract buyers and likely sell your home for

more money.

 

Light It Up

The simplest trick to brighten up the room is to open the blinds

and let the natural lighting come through. Adding new bright light

fixtures is one of the best upgrades you can make.

 

Neutral Wall Colors

Before listing your home, give your living room a fresh coat of paint

to revamp the space. White, off-white, or even light gray are great

choices for neutral colors.

 

Mindful Staging

A helpful tip to increase appeal is to declutter furniture. Keeping

decorations simple will help buyers better visualize their own

belongings in the home. For example, a piece of art, a plant, and

a few pieces of furniture should be basic enough for the appeal to

increase while also remaining homely.

 

Update Flooring

If your living room has old carpeting, replace it with wood or

tile flooring. Depending on your budget, there are numerous

alternatives. An affordable and easily maintained option is wood-

look vinyl. If you’re unsure which flooring to go with, reach out to me

Showcase Extra Shelving or Storage

Storage space always appeals to buyers, especially in the living

room. If your room has any niches, you could incorporate a built-in

shelf to add that much more value to the room. The biggest take

away is don’t dismiss dead space that can be utilized for shelving

and storage.
