Expert Advice on Getting Your Home Ready To Sell
Impress potential buyers with our home-update tips for every budget: $100, $1,000, or $5,000. Mix and match our ideas by taking on several small projects or focusing on one or two larger ones.
Reinvent the Kitchen
$100: Install elegant cabinet knobs and drawer pulls for an instant makeover.
$1,000: Brighten the kitchen with a variety of lighting, such as under- and above-cabinet fixtures, pendants above an island, or recessed lights. You can also install a sleek new sink and faucet.
$5,000: If your appliances are outdated, you may want to invest in a new cooktop, range, and/or dishwasher. Look for styles with universal appeal (that means no avocado green!). If your cabinets are less-than-stylish, consider refacing them for a fresh new look.
