Are you looking to make a big move? With the prime real estate selling season coming to an end, you may be wondering what you can do to help your house sell fast, whether you’re preparing to list your home soon or it’s been sitting on the market for a while. Here are a few affordable, DIY (do it yourself) fixes that will help change that “For Sale” sign to “Sold!”
Updating the kitchen gives the greatest ROI and should be #1 on any Home Renovation Checklist.
It’s a well-known fact in real estate circles — updating the kitchen gives the greatest ROI (return on investment) for sellers. This is especially true when you DIY with RTA (ready to assemble) cabinetry. Buyers can be turned off by a dingy and dated kitchen, so replacing old and ugly cabinetry can make a big difference and set your home apart from the competition.
In addition to helping you sell quickly, a newly updated kitchen will likely increase your property value —which translates to extra dollars in your pocket. With RTA cabinetry and the right tools, you’ll save money by doing the work yourself. The RTA Store has a vast selection of all wood cabinetry, and we offer a free design consultation with experts to help you every step of the way.
Four more DIY fixes to add to your Home Renovation Checklist:
- If your home is wall-to-wall worn carpeting, it’s time to focus on your flooring. Most buyers love the look of hardwood floors, but we recommend opting for wood look tile or luxury vinyl flooring over hardwood. It’s durable, easy to clean, easy to install, and has a much lower price point than wood. It’s also suitable for the entire home, including wet areas like the kitchen and bath.
- Clean baseboards and give the interior walls a fresh coat of neutral paint. You may love your bold color choices but potential buyers may not. Light gray, beige and white are all classic picks with mass appeal. Paint is a cheap fix and can easily be accomplished on your own.

- When selling a home, first impressions matter. Boost curb appeal with colorful flowers and other low-cost landscaping ideas. Then, add a layer of fresh mulch and finish the look with potted plants on the porch, a seasonal wreath for the door, and a new welcome mat.
- Follow these tips on how to stage your home to sell from Better Homes and Gardens.
