Will a can of paint result in thousands of dollars added to your home's sale price? It's possible.
While you know your home is valuable, sometimes all it takes is a few minor improvements to help potential buyers see the same value we see. 

We’ve outlined the a number of popular upgrades below. Al Pratte with The Pratte Group, a division of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, can help prioritize each by determining which projects will add the most value based on your specific home, neighborhood and market area.

Tips to Get You Started


Your closets looks twice as big with half the hodgepodge.

A fresh coat of neutral paint is viewed as a blank canvas to potential buyers.

Show buyers that each room has a purpose, but don't overdo the decor.

Lighting, especially natural sunlight, really does help lift the mood and make a room feel larger.

A fresh coat of paint really can make almost any exterior look new again.

If the landscaping is not appealing, buyers likely won't step inside.

Prove that cars can actually fit inside by organizing the space.

Set up the outdoor space as if guests are coming over for a barbeque.
