Paint: Paint is the easiest and most affordable way to improve the look of your home. If you are tight on your budget, concentrate on the focal areas of your home, such as the kitchen, living and dining areas.

Update window treatments: New curtains or blinds will refresh the look of a room instantly.

Polish the floorboards: Solid wood flooring is a big asset if well cared for. Having them sanded down and sealed can be a stunning improvement. You will recoup much of the investment when you sell.

Clean up: Give your house a thorough clean, including the walls and woodwork. Dust and dirt must be removed to reveal the beauty of the paint.

Tidy up the section: Good fences and trimmed gardens are the fundamentals of an attractive outdoor appearance. A thorough section clean-up, followed by a coat of paint on all the fences, will give your home an instant face lift.
