If you are selling a house, you know that, before listing it, you will have to make some improvements and renovations. Some of the most basic of these repairs / renovations may not do much to increase the selling price, but need to get any kind of sale at all. Others may be completely optional or may yield little return on the investment at closing (or maybe even cost you money). And yet others will bring a stunning comeback. So let's look at 5 ways when selling your house in, to maximize your income.

1. Clean Up Outside and Work on Curb Appeal

One simply can not overestimate the importance of first impressions. And what generates the vital first impression as customers first pull up is the exterior of your house – the curb appeal. And that means one of the best ways to maximize your returns when selling your house in is to improve the curb appeal – and it doesn't necessarily have to be big costly things like a full-blown professional landscaping job. First start with the tiny, noticeable things.

Heres what the pros advise: "For the most part, the little things you do to make the home look nicer at first glance are inexpensive and can help your home stand out greatly. Some of the exterior improvements you may do may include patching gaps in the sidewalk and driveway, repairing the caulk around your windows, adding new fixtures such as doorknobs, painting the front door, fixing and painting broken fences, planting flowers, applying mulch to flower beds, and so on.”

2. Paint the Interior

Another relatively easy and cheap way to maximize your returns when selling your home in is by painting the interior ceilings and walls that need it. In fact, industry experts claim there is "nothing more cost-effective than painting in home sales. One of the cheapest improvements you can make to your home is a new coat of paint that will make it more attractive to buyers.”

Note that they will be searching for faults and stuff to talk about when potential buyers visit your house, essentially nit-picking. And since ceilings and walls are so wide and so visible, it pays to give them proof of complaint.
