Selling Your Home? Try a Mini-Makeover

April 18, 2015 in blog by lesley  |  1 Comments

Are you selling your home?

Fixit can help those of you who need a few touch ups before you list your house on the market.  Little blemishes or outdated kitchen hardware can make a house look weary and in most cases, they can be easily fixed.  Just one day of a handyman’s time can make a huge difference!  You may want to touch up cracks on your baseboards and around the window frames that can make a house look weary. Refreshing the walls with a single coat of paint or simply painting over little scratches and smudges can also make a big difference. We often work with real estate agents who know how important the little details are, but we can also offer a ‘mini-makeover’ to you.

You don’t have to be selling your house to benefit from a mini-makeover, you can have one done for your own enjoyment.  If you are contemplating moving, it just might make you want to stay.  The popular show, “Love it or List it” is an extreme example of this, they take three weeks and have big budgets but it is the same principle.  However, a little can go a long way too.

A mini-makeover often includes:

  • Touch up walls, patch nail holes, refresh the paint
  • Paint the front door
  • Re-caulk bathtubs, touch-up baseboards
  • Change the vanity in a bathroom
  • Fill cracks & repaint window sills & door frames
  • Tight http://fixitall.ca/wp-login.phpen hinges on kitchen cabinets
