Recently I have been getting many questions about how to
update a home without spending a fortune!
As a Realtor I am in homes all day every day and I see
everything from turn of the century to brand new construction. I think the
first thing to remember is everyone has a different style. There are certain
trends that have become more prevalent but you remember that you can always
work with what you have.
DE clutter, DE clutter, DE clutter, this should be your
mantra. Your home can take on a completely new feeling when you get the junk
out and re organize. Open up your space and see what you have been missing!
This is a fantastic way to change the feel of a room.
The kitchen is the
most important room in your home for resale or upgrade and no surprise the most
expensive! Paint is inexpensive so start
there and when in doubt Google! Find some pictures online to help guide you in
your color selection. Here is also a room to use your new DE cluttering mantra.
Get the stuff off the counters, sink and fridge. A cluttered kitchen can look
cramped and small. But a clean and organized one can make the space inviting
and seem much larger.
Finally reuse what you have. If you want to change the style
of a room rather than purchasing new furniture and decorations check out your
local thrift store. Again paint is cheap find something and make it work for your
new style or re-purpose something you already have!
Updating your home does not need to cost you a pretty penny.
Get organized, re-purpose and reuse!

A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, and the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
