If you want to sell your house but you are concerned about the expenses needed to bring the value up, know that there are ways to do it on a limited budget. But, if you list your house with a real estate agent, you need to know that you must make the house presentable enough for a potential buyer to be intrigued when they look up your house online. Believe us, if your house is listed with an agent, your pictures online will quickly get a lot of attention.

So, are you ready to find out how to avoid spending a fortune when selling your house in Virginia Beach?

Cosmetic Fixes

You need to start with the basics. Go outside and take a look at your house from a distance. What are the first things you need to fix to get a decent curb appeal? Getting your lawn and fencing in order are the first things to renovate and maintain. It does not cost much to do so. Next is the outside of the house, maybe a thorough cleaning or a new coat of paint? These things are the first to look at before selling your house in Virginia Beach. Looking at the inside of the house, the best things you can do is renovate the kitchen and bathrooms with the latest trends/materials. If that if too much, then at least you can put a new carpet, light fixtures, and paint the inside of the house. Maybe now is the time to call that uncle of yours who is a painter? Regarding flooring, wood is most desirable, but quality laminate can be almost as good, just cheaper. Also, please go for the most neutral look/colors.


Let talk more about looks. When you are selling a house, it is very important to declutter and depersonalize it. Why? Because when you are selling the house, it is not about you, it’s about what the buyer likes. And you have no way of knowing that. It is best go with the most neutral everything. Let the buyer personalize the house to their liking. That of course means to also remove all personal belongings from the house, regardless of how cute you think they are, including that cool bar you installed with neon lights in one of the spare bedrooms! So, what do you do with your personal stuff when you are selling the house? Here are two options : 1. rent a storage unit, 2. talk to a friend or a relative to store your belongings at their house/shed until you move. If house showings is a bit much for you and you really don’t wat to deal with that, you could consider skipping the hassles of staging & showings and sell directly to a professional investor from Coastal Edge Homebuyers.
