5 Tips To Sell Your Home Faster

We may not be ready to ditch our winter coats just yet, but before we know it, spring will arrive!

We all know that spring and summer are hot for the housing market, so if you’re planning a move, check out our 7 tips for selling your home at the best possible price — and fast!

Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again — paint is one of the most effective, and least expensive ways to update your home. New paint has the ability to lighten and brighten a room, and make it feel new again, as it contrasts with the flooring in the room. Choose a grey or greige for wide appeal, and opt for a flat finish to hide any imperfections.

Keep The Clutter to a Minimum 

Beneficial in more ways than one, decluttering will help you prepare for your move, and enable buyers to more easily imagine themselves in the home.

The less you have, the better — especially when it comes to closet space. Half-empty closets will create the illusion of fabulous storage, even if it’s not really that fabulous. If the walls and floor are clear, it’s easy to compliment the colors of the room, creating a more desirable room and ultimately a more desirable home. 



A well-lit home is key in creating a positive and inviting experience for potential buyers. Make sure bulbs are in working order, and swap out dated fixtures when possible. Great lighting will also make the walls and carpet or flooring pop out more, providing an easy, mini refresh to any room.

Cabinet & Hardware Upgrade 

We all know that kitchens and bathrooms have the ability to sell a home. But if your cabinetry looks boring and out of style, your selling price will likely reflect that. Paint-dated, mid-toned cabinetry a bright white for a clean, and contemporary refresh, and consider splurging on some new, beautiful hardware to complete the look.

Update Flooring 

Broken tiles and old, peeling vinyl flooring send major red flags to a buyer. In their mind, flooring will cost a lot to replace. Luckily, you know there are affordable and beautiful remedies to refresh your flooring before your home hits the market. Consider Luxury Vinyl flooring for this quick and affordable update.

Choosing Between Granite & Quartz Countertops

Whether you’re updating an existing room, or planning for a top to bottom makeover — new countertops are often the pièce de résistance of your renovation project.  However, with a hefty price tag, it’s important to choose your countertops wisely, ensuring your family enjoys them for years to come. Not sure where to start? Let us break down between granite and quartz countertops. 

The Basics of Quartz and Granite

Granite is a natural stone that is quarried directly from the earth in large blocks. These blocks are then sliced into slabs and polished on one side.

Quartz, on the other hand, is an engineered stone, meaning a manufacturing plant uses various grades and sizes of quartz crystals and mixes them with resin and pigment. Quartz is still considered a natural stone, however it’s not quite as natural as granite. 

Durability & Maintenance

Quartz is significantly stronger than granite countertops. Although, granite isn’t as strong as quartz countertops, doesn’t mean it’s not strong enough for your needs.

The truth is, both materials require maintenance, however Quartz countertops have recently become the favorite in terms of all around durability. Many find that quartz countertops are easier to clean and maintain throughout the years. They don’t require resealing, and are extremely stain resistant. Use them, love them, and don’t worry about them.

Which Stone Looks Better?

If you’re more into looks than durability, you might find yourself initially drawn to the unique beauty of granite countertops. Every granite countertop is one of a kind, and there’s certainly an excitement that comes with finding that perfect slab with wonderfully perfect imperfections. However, let’s not forget that quartz countertops can be found in a vast array of styles; often perfectly mimicking that natural granite look we know and love.

Quartz countertops are not necessarily better than granite, and granite countertops are not better than quartz, either. It all comes down to your personal taste and the needs of your family. Luckily, our experts are always available to help guide you in the right direction, from the selection process, all the way through installation. You can even purchase your sink, faucet and disposal with us! Visit our Granite & Quartz Custom Countertops page to get started.
