By Jason Boone

With summer winding down fall is one of the most popular months to sell a Bend Oregon Home because, people love fall colors, fall festivals and everything about living here as we approach holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

If you want to sell your home during fall 2014 you can increase its value and get it ready for sale by following these simple tips:

Tip 1 – Talk with a Professional Designer

To increase the value of your Bend single family home, condo, town home or rental home fast try consulting with a professional designer first before making any improvements or renovations.

This step is important because, it’s affordable (costs about $100) and you can get some great tips for renovations or improvements which you can make to your home for sometimes a lot less than you think.

Tip 2 – Inspect Your Home

Did you know you can renovate or improve your home without having to spend thousands of dollars?

That’s right.

Start by inspecting your roof, fence, driveway, deck, patio and other areas of your home which may need work or a little TLC because, making minor improvements to your home can go a long way towards increasing your home’s value fast.

Tip 3 – Get Your Paint On

When was the last time you painted the inside or outside of your home?

If the answer is never, then it’s time for you to get to know a paint brush and roller, because, for about $25 you can increase the value of your home by adding new paint to the inside or outside of your home.

Painting will also help to de-personalize your home and help a home buyer to see it as a home they could envision themselves living in rather than being distracted by the many personal touches you’ve made to your home over the years.

Tip 5 – Search Offline for Ideas

Sometimes it’s easy to get stuck when it comes to renovating or decorating a home and when these times come it’s best to hit the street and start reviewing homes in the area to get an idea of what improvements or renovations your neighbors have made to their homes over the years.

You can also get inspiration for decorating or renovating ideas simply by searching through decorating magazines or grab a copy of the Sunday edition of the Bend Bulletin and review the advertisements to see what decorating styles are being advertised by stores like Walmart, Kohls and Home Depot.
