A Little Paint, Tile and Carpets Can Go a Long Way in Down Market

Everyone know it but sometimes it is amazing how many people don't pay attention to the details when looking to sell their house.  Some newly painted walls, fixing cracked or chipped tiles and replacing worn carpets can transform a house from a maybe into an enthusiastic yes!  Potential buyers will love seeing that you have taken the time to fix any problem areas and a fresh new coat of paint can make a room really stand out.  

Still not a believer?  Take a look at this case in Waldwick, New Jersey.  

Get Educated.  Get Empowered.
