Get Your Condo Open House Ready for Under a Thousand Bucks

By Mike in Selling Tips with 0 Comments

An open house is the perfect way to showcase your East Village loft for sale. To make the most of this opportunity, it pays to invest a little time and energy into addressing minor imperfections that may be off-putting to prospective buyers. For less than a $1,000, you can make sure that your condo or loft’s best attributes shine on open house day.

Spruce up the Kitchen

Painting kitchen cabinets and switching out the hardware is an inexpensive way to breathe new life into a dated kitchen. If your budget allows, consider replacing older, white appliances with stainless steel ones.

Freshen up the Paint

Make sure all walls are free of smudges and scuff marks. If your walls are painted in colors that are very bright or taste specific, consider repainting them in a neutral shade. This will help visitors at your open house to visualize the space with their own furniture and design aesthetic.

Create a Bedroom Retreat

Remove any clutter and excess personal items from your dresser and nightstand before showing off your condo for sale in downtown San Diego. You should also upgrade your bedding with a new duvet cover and throw pillows. Consider going all white—it evokes the feeling of being at a luxury hotel.

Perk up the Outdoor Space

If you have a balcony or other outdoor space, be sure to get rid of any faded or broken furniture. Consider purchasing an inexpensive patio set and adding a few colorful plants and throw pillows to make the space feel more inviting.

Upgrade the Bathroom

Replace or paint an older vanity. Add new towels, a rug, shower curtain, and a few candles or fresh flowers to give your bathroom a spa-like feel.

Remember the Floors

Have your hardwood or tile floors professionally cleaned and polished. Carpeting should also be steam cleaned before the open house. Also remember to clean, replace, or discard any worn or stained area rugs.
