Time for some spring cleaning!

Are you thinking of updating your home this Spring? Make sure that while you're putting money into your home that you're able to get that money out of it.

Entrance: "Don't underestimate the power of a front door. People make up their minds in the first seven seconds of entering a house. If you don't have a way out of the rain, or shelter from the sun while you are fumbling for your keys, you are really missing out." 

Flooring: Don't undervalue the materials you're standing on. Ninety-four percent of real estate pros recommend spending some money on floors. But it doesn't have to be a lot of money. For an estimated average investment of $600 to $900, brokers report that the return in value comes in at up to $2,000. 

Bathrooms: Replace frosted glass for clear glass, clean the grout, remove rust stains, apply fresh caulk, update doorknobs and cabinet pulls, replace faucets, and install a low-flush toilet. Even buying a new toilet seat can make a difference. Bailey says, "You can spend $500 on a bathroom, and it's totally tuned up." 

Painting: If you're getting ready to put a house on this circumspect market, don't allow walls with chipped paint to go unmaintained. If you need to do more than a touch up, choose neutral colors.
