If you are selling your Jacksonville home or just want it to look nicer, you don’t need to sink in a ton of cash to do it. There are a number of hacks that will make your home look great for only a $500 spend.

Paint

Seems simple enough, but you need to realize the transformative power of $500 worth of paint. Spending that much could possibly paint your entire home or just the most important rooms: kitchen, living space, foyer and bathrooms. While bedrooms are important, the most important bedroom is the master. Typically, painting kid’s bedrooms won’t have any effect on buyers. If you are selling your Jacksonville home, use neutral and appealing colors.

Landscaping

Curb appeal counts for so much when you are selling your home, so showing your buyers your home is beautiful by adding a walkway or some strategically-placed plants, bushes and trees will be well-worth the effort. Don’t forget the backyard either – if it looks barren, you may want to add some color to it to liven it up for your own use or to wow buyers.

New backsplash

If your home is a bit dated, this is one area where you don’t have to spend more than $500 to see a dramatic difference. Remove the current backsplash tiles and opt for new, trendy and neutral tiles that will make your kitchen look brand new. You don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on new cabinetry and appliances when you can just spend $500 and replace the backsplash.


New hardware

A home could look brand new once you’ve spent $500 on new hardware for it. This could include:

·         Light switch plates

·         Vent plates

·         Doorknobs

·         Cupboard knobs and handles

The mixed metal look is very hot right now and by adding some new and shiny hardware, it will make quite a difference to a buyer’s opinion of your home.

Adding some storage space

A good home has a good amount of organized storage space. If you feel like your home seems cluttered or small, spend $500 on new shelving and storage accessories that will really help make your home feel larger. Not only will an organized home feel better for you living there, it will give buyers that feeling that this is the home they want to organize their own belongings in.
