Hi Friends! Thinking about getting your home on the market when things are a little back to normal? Scroll on to see some small investments to make to your home to improve your lifestyle now, and improve your home value long-term! Let me know if you have any questions.


Remodeling Magazine reports that replacing your front entry door with a steel door offers one of the best returns on investment for homeowners. On average, homeowners recoup 85.6% of the cost of a steel door when they sell their home.

​​​​​​​Choosing the right entry door is a big part of making your home look more appealing- it is one of the first things guests and neighbors see when they drive past or visit your home. Make sure you feel that it is sturdy and stylish- first impressions do matter!


Get the look of a marble backsplash or subway tiles using contact paper or peel and stick tiles. Wallpaper can also be a great way to make a statement and give your home more texture and detail.

If you've been on the hunt for a way to add more personality to your interior- wallpaper is the answer! Whether you desire to enhance your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or living room...I'm sure you will come across many great designs to choose from! It can be a game-changer and will easily give your space an attractive new look. 


According to a recent survey conducted by, 80% of homebuyers placed the kitchen in their list of top three most important spaces. Instead of replacing all of your cabinets, try a fresh coat of paint.

It's important to make sure your kitchen looks polished and up to date as many of us spend a lot of our time there! This process will save you a lot of money, labor, and time- and your cabinets can still end up looking new!


​​​​​​​Time on your hands? Finally, get to the crowded garage you have been trying to clear out. Free up some space in your packed closet that's needing some love.

​​​​​​​During this quarantine, I've put some time aisde to clean out my closet and cabinets. It feels good to let go of belongings I no longer need or use. Decluttering can not only free up some space in your home you never knew you had, but make it easier to sell in the future!


First impressions are everything in selling a home quickly! Warm neutral colors make it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living there.

A fresh coat of paint on the interior or exterior is a low-cost improvement that makes a big statement. Check out this list of 12 exterior house colors that help sell your house here.


Investing in something as simple as a smart doorbell or security camera can  make you feel safe at home. Smart locks are another piece of tech that can make your every day easier.

It is critical that you and your loved ones feel safe in your own home- therefore, I highly recommend that you install one of these. There are many advantages to adding more security to your home- thieves are less likely to break in and you will always have access to video footage of who comes near your door. In addition, it will be a huge perk to buyers when they see this has already been taken care of!
