Here are mini-projects under $1,000 experts recommend:
Paint the front door and put on new house numbers:
Don't have the money to paint your home's entire exterior? Try the front door instead. Try affixing new house numbers.
Spruce up landscaping:
You've likely heard of "curb appeal," the phrase real estate agents use to describe the visual aesthetics of a home's outside yard and entryway.
Build a fire pit:
Building a fire pit can make your yard its own retreat. And it's less expensive than installing a fireplace inside.
Paint one or more rooms
Thumbtack, found interior painting averages about $385 a room.
Spruce up the bathroom:
Maybe install a new vanity with storage, add new black matte hardware and new light fixtures.
It may only take several hundred dollars to improve the bathroom, and it will reap more in the home sale.
Get your windows washed:
Get both the interior and exterior windows washed. It makes a massive difference.
Add open shelving:
Home improvement shows made open shelves popular.
Listings that mention open shelf designs sell six days faster than expected.
Replace the light fixtures:
Simply changing light fixtures can modernize a house. Even outdoor lights can change the vibe of a place.
Clean the carpets and the floors:
Floor cleaning prices range from $250 to $400.
