If you’re putting your home on the market in the Tampa Bay area, you’re probably always on the lookout for quick improvements you can make to boost its marketability.
The good news is that you can do all 10 of these quick fixes in just one weekend – and you’ll be able to wow potential buyers without putting in too much effort.
4 Quick Fixes You Can Make in One Weekend
- Oil your door hinges with WD-40. Open and close the door to work in the oil. If you don’t have WD-40 handy, you can give petroleum jelly a shot.
- Repair peeling wallpaper. Spread wallpaper paste on a slip of paper, and rub the coated paper against the underside of the peeling wallpaper. Press the wallpaper against the wall and slide the paper out, smoothing away bubbles as you go.
- Clean out a stained tub. Using one part cream of tartar and one part baking soda, mix the two together with lemon juice to make a paste. Rub the mixture into the stain and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing it away.
- Get the scuffs out of linoleum. Rub scuffs with white toothpaste or a pencil eraser; if that doesn’t work, spray WD-40 on a towel and rub them. (Make sure you degrease the area after using WD-40.)
