Spring is in the air, and for many people, that means it’s time to think about home selling. Even if you are not planning to enter the Silicon Valley real estate market, now is a great time to do a few improvements to your Silicon Valley property. We’ve rounded up a few of the easiest projects that have the most impact.
1. Paint. New paint is probably the cheapest way to quickly change the feel of a room or exterior of the house. Don’t forget the ceilings! Get rid of outdated popcorn and bring a peaceful feel to a room with soft, creamy colors. Exterior paint will make your house feel new again. Crisp colors and a nice contrast on the trims make a huge difference to the curb appeal.
The other place paint is great is cabinets. In both the kitchen and bathrooms, painting boring pressboard cupboards can really jazz up the feel of the room.
Small Changes Make a Big Difference to Silicon Valley Property
2. New fixtures. An updated faucet in the kitchen will bring the room into the 21st century in a snap. The same thing goes in the bathrooms. Add new drawer pulls and cabinet handles, and in a few hours, you’ll feel like you have a whole new room. For the exterior, try getting new decorative house numbers, an updated door handle, and even a new mailbox.
3. Landscaping. Get outside in the fresh air and plant some perennial flowers or bushes. Go for local species that are drought tolerant. Try to get plants that flower at different times of the year so something is always blooming. Talk to your local plant nursery for advice.
We hope you feel inspired to start updating your Silicon Valley real estate. A few quick fixes can really make you feel more positive about your house and happier to be home.
