    5 DIY Upgrades That Could Help You Sell Your Investment Property

5 DIY Upgrades That Could Help You Sell Your Investment Property

You should always work with a team of professionals for major upgrades to any investment property, like plumbing and electrical work… but there are dozens of things you can do yourself to add style to the house you’re selling and appeal to a wide range of buyers.
4 DIY Upgrades to Help You Sell Your Investment Property
Easy Upgrade #1: Carved Corbels Beneath Bars
If the home you’re selling has a breakfast bar, make it a little fancier by adding carved corbels beneath it. It’s something so subtle that people won’t notice them directly—but they will notice the added panache the whole bar has.
Easy Upgrade #2: Chandeliers in Unexpected Places
Hang a chandelier—a simple one—in the laundry room. Put one in the master bedroom. People love seeing surprise sophistication in unexpected places.
Easy Upgrade #3: Wall Hooks in Convenient Places
It’s simple but surprisingly attractive: add wall hooks above the kitchen counter that add convenience and style that buyers will love. They can use them for towels, mugs, or anything else—and you can find them and install them yourself.
Easy Upgrade #4: Fit the Sink With a Built-In (Kind-Of) Cutting Board
Give buyers extra food prep space by fitting an under-mount sink with a cutting board. Trim a piece of butcher block to the right size, and then create a lip around the bottom of it so it rests on the edges of the counter around the sink.
Easy Upgrade #5: Put Up Natural Fiber Window Coverings
Rather than everyday blinds or worse, no window coverings at all, hang natural fiber window shades. Added bonus: they help insulate windows.

5 MORE Hot Home Design Trends for 2017

You thought we covered it all in our last post, 5 Hot Home Design Trends to Help You Sell Your Investment Property… but we’re back with five more great tips your buyers will love.
2017’s Hottest Home Design Trends (Part Two)
2017 Home Design Trend 1: Vanities
Vanities are back in, but there’s a twist: only different vanities (read: not the kind your grandmother had) will do. Vintage pieces make great vanities and lend a spa-style ambience to bathrooms with claw-footed tubs.
2017 Home Design Trend 2: Steel and Glass in the Shower
Steel and glass are the “it” thing for those spa-style bathrooms. A walk-in shower with floor-to-ceiling steel-and-glass walls are the right way to go to appeal to modern, trendy buyers.
2017 Home Design Trend 3: Accent Walls With Decorative Painting
Rather than choosing a color that’s a few shades darker for an accent wall, like most people do, try a marbleized wall. Maybe a wall that looks like brushed aluminum… or maybe even something more bold.
2017 Home Design Trend 4: A Real Docking Station
The need for home offices is dwindling, although they’re still in wide use. The thing now, though, is a recessed space in a wall with shelves, drawers, and USB ports built right into the wall so anyone can grab a spot and start working
2017 Home Design Trend 5: Finished Garages
You don’t have to completely finish a garage, but it does help if the walls aren’t showing studs or unpainted drywall. Add brick near the foundation and some molding above it to appeal to buyers who like a more upscale look.

5 Hot Home Design Trends for 2017

The hottest trends in home design just may be what makes your investment property sell faster—and for more money—this year.
5 Hot Home Design Trends for 2017
Design Trend  #1: Built-In Bars
Last year it was the bar cart; this year it’s actual, built-in bars. Shelving for cocktail accessories, glasses, and even bottles is becoming increasingly popular.
Design Trend #2: Colored Refrigerators
If you’re selling your investment property with a fridge included, spring for a 1950s-style refrigerator in a bright, bold color.
Design Trend #3: Creative Tile Backsplashes
While square backsplashes have been a “thing” for quite a while now, this year other geometric shapes are in. You can choose a few harmonious colors or—if you’re extra bold—colors that match the colored refrigerator you’re adding.
Design Trend #4: Wall Tile in the Kitchen
Think bigger than a backsplash and tile at least one wall of the kitchen. It’s easy on the eyes… and easy to clean, which makes it a big bonus for hip homebuyers this year.
Design Trend #5: Marble, but in White or Gray
Forget the dark marble countertops of yesteryear and modernize with white or gray marble. People are even choosing it for serving platters, tabletops, and other home accessories, which is a testament to its popularity.
