What does that mean for buyers? Plenty of buyers!

Right now, there are more buyers than homes available to buy.  Bidding wars are the norm.  Buyers, know your budget and prepare to move quickly when you find "the perfect home".  Don't expect to bargain or negotiate.  Currently, sellers are requesting your best and final offer, reviewing all offers at the same time, and choosing one - much like an auction.

Three Subtle Painting Tricks That Will Make Your Home Look Amazing

 

When it comes to painting the walls of a house, sometimes subtle is best. You want to add design, color, and texture to the walls, but you don't want it jarring to the eyes.

Here are three subtle painting techniques you can try on your home walls.
 

Tissue Paper Texture 

One easy way to add texture to walls is to use tissue paper. You apply the tissue paper to the walls and it stays there until you want something new. 

Crumple up a piece of tissue paper into a tight ball and then open it up and smooth it out. Small textured lines will appear on the paper. Those lines will remain when you use the paper on the walls. 

Use the colored wall paint as glue to adhere the tissue paper to the wall. Paint an area of the wall that's a little bit bigger than the piece of tissue paper. Press the paper to the painted area and smooth it out so all the edges stick to the wall. Paint over the tissue paper.

 

Repeat the process until the entire wall is covered. 

Sponge Color-on-Color Technique 

Natural sponges create a unique look on painted walls. If you use two versions of the same color, satin and semi-gloss, then it creates a subtle look that isn't shocking to the eyes. The color is the same but the shine is different. 

Paint your wall with the satin color paint. Let it dry completely. Dip the top of the natural sponge in the semi-gloss paint. Dab the sponge to the wall over and over. It's OK to overlap the paint in areas and you aren't going to completely cover the wall.


Once dry, the satin paint will show from beneath the semi-gloss paint creating a neat shine effect. 

Taped Stripes 

You don't want bold multi-color stripes on your wall because it will stand out too much. Subtle stripes create a beautiful effect. 

Choose two colors that sit side-by-side on the color spectrum. Or, choose two similar colors from different companies. Paint companies tend to have slight differences in colors. 

Paint the walls your first color choice. Let it dry completely. Tape the walls using painters tape to make stripes. Make them horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. Make them wide or thin. It's up to you.

 

Paint the walls again with the second color choice. Paint right over the tape. When you remove the tape, the first color will show. 

These simple and subtle paint techniques will make your walls beautiful. This is especially useful if you plan to sell your home and want to increase its value.

Selling Your Home? Boost Your Resale Value with These Three Inexpensive Renovations

 

To get top dollar for your home, renovations may be necessary. However, some renovations can prove costly and they don’t always add value to your home. Here are three inexpensive renovations that are sure to improve the resale value of your home. 

First Impressions Matter 

 

Your home needs to have curb appeal. If the potential buyer doesn't see that, it will be difficult to get the price you want. Spend money and time landscaping your yard. Pressure wash your driveway. Paint your front door. Make your porch look welcoming. If you do all of this yourself or with the help of family and friends, the costs will be reasonable. 

After a prospective buyer is impressed by your nicely kept lawn, you will want to continue impressing him/her with your interior design. Buyers know what they want when it comes to the number of bedrooms and baths. You have something they want or they wouldn't be looking at your home. Now, you need to keep their attention. 

Freshening Up the Interior

 

Each room needs to be freshly painted in a neutral color. Old wallpaper and borders should be stripped and walls repainted. Make each room look larger by clearing any clutter. If possible, remove any unnecessary furniture and store it somewhere else. Have any carpets professionally cleaned, and be sure to polish any hardwood flooring. In the bedrooms, de-clutter your closets. Your kitchen and bathrooms should be sparkling. Clean and organize counters and cabinets. Again, most of these suggestions cost little but add great value to your home. 

Upgrades 

 

 When you think of upgrades, you many automatically assume major costs with little return. However, many upgrades may be within your budget. Consider making some of these affordable upgrades to your home. 


Living Areas/Family Rooms – If you’re going for a more elegant touch, add some crown molding. For a more rustic feel, add box beams. Improving the ceilings of main rooms will add value to your home. 

Hardware and Fixtures – Painting and changing the hardware on your cabinet doors can change the look of a room dramatically. Add new fixtures such as lighting and doorknobs for a more updated look.
