We’ve heard it again and again… kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. Remodeling your kitchen and bathroom is said to bring you the highest return on your investment when you go to sell. But, what can you do without having to do a full renovation and remodel? Let’s check my new favorite blog and find out…

Nickie of the Home Stagging Blog recently posted about how to “Freshen Up Your Bathrooms for Buyers.” Her easy and affordable tips include:

  • Display new towels “artfully.”
  • Rid your shower extra bottles.
  • Hang art.
  • Add fresh flowers an candles.
  • Replace shower curtains.
  • Remove bath rugs.

Here are some properties that “get it” when it comes to showing off their baths:

1621 N Marquart St, Orange, 92867 (4 bed/3 bath; 2,418 sq ft; $679,000)

And to make the point of how a bad bath can make any buyer go “Eww, umm… I don’t think so,” here are some examples of sellers who need to follow these tips.
