New Document No Cost Tips

By

There are many things you can do that cost nothing and will really make a big difference in your
home’s appearance. A better appearance will make it sell more quickly and realize more profit.
A clean house is obviously essential to making a good impression for a prospective buyer. You want carpets and floors to look their best. A nice entryway will make a much better impression than one that is dirty with cobwebs and dead plants.
Evaluate
Ask a trusted friend to help with this step. Ask them to tour your property with fresh eyes as if they were a
prospective buyer. Drive or walk up to your house and see how it appears from the street. Walk through the
front door and take a look around. Are there any strange smells or broken items? Keep a pencil and paper with you as they suggest things to do.

Sticky Doors and Sliding Doors
Sticky doors may connotative to the buyer that other parts of your home are in disrepair. If the doors do not open and close smoothly it costs you nothing to fix it (other than the cost of sand paper). The only “bad” part is you will need to touch up the paint, so sand off extra to allow for the thickness of the paint. Finish the repair job with a little oil on the hinges. The hinges could also be loose. Use a screw driver to tighten the screws, and if they seem stripped, replace them. For sliding doors; clean the tracks, and if they still stick, you might have to replace the rollers.

De-Clutter
Clean up and remove things that do not need to be there. You will be moving everything out anyway, right?
Start early and remove things that your trusted evaluator friend says should be moved out. You can put it
in the garage or in an off site storage locker. Get rid of anything that blocks pathways or clutters up
side yards, back yards and patios. This includes toys, excess furniture and tools. Some people believe that too many family photos can also deter potential home buyers. Prospective buyers want to invision themselves in this new home, and your family photos can diminish that vision. Simplify and stream line is a good mantra to keep in mind when trying to stage your home for selling.

Don’t cook smelly or greasy foods when you are about to show the house. If you have cats, clean the litter box at least once a day. Bake cinnamon rolls or cookies before buyers visit to give your place a “homey” smell, or just place a pan of water on the stove and sprinkle cinnamon and cloves and simmer on low heat.
Low Cost Tips
Think about this like investing. If you invest a few hundred dollars a little at a time, you will more than likely see more return on the profit of your home. Some low cost things might make a big difference to a buyer and they might have walked away if you had not done the little improvements.
Paint
You probably have seen the house every day and have not noticed the changes. This is where someone else canreally help. Wash the interior walls and if they don’t look right, paint them. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way to improve the appearance of your home, and it is a low cost project with big results. This is not the time to experiment with wild paint colors. Stick to the neutral tones! You might want to even repaint the front door and change the door knob.
Plants
Don’t overlook the outdoor landscaping. In the winter, the outside landscaping won’t be as important as
it is in the spring, summer or fall. So in the winter, make sure the yard is tidy and rake and sweep the yard and sidewalks. Remove dead or dying plants. Hire a gardener and ask the gardener to suggest what should be done. Spend a little money on some nice indoor plants. Plants can make a home look healthy and inviting.
Lights
Make sure exterior lights are working and have fresh bulbs. Turn them on at night. Sometimes
buyers will cruise by in the evening so you want the house to look nice if they do. Prior to buyers touring your home, turn on all the lights so the rooms look bright and airy.
Other Simple Stuff
Replace or remove torn screens or damaged storm windows. Shine or replace worn door knockers and hardware.
Clean your windows. You can also hire someone to come in and clean for a couple hours.
Consider renting a temporary storage space rather than stuffing your packed boxes in your closets or garage, which will make them look smaller.
Important Tips
Fix your floors. Real estate agents say buyers really notice the condition of floors. Hardwood should be polished and carpets shampooed, or if they are in bad shape, replace them. Repair any broken tile or linoleum.

Concentrate on smaller fixes with bigger impact, and let your buyers remodel to suit themselves.

Talk with me about suggestions and maybe which projects you should tackle before listing your home.
Consider a pre-sale inspection. You may want to hire your own inspector before you put your home on the market.
If the repairs are expensive, it is better to know now, rather than being surprised once your home is in escrow.

LE FEUILLETE DASPERGES VERTES

By

Préparation : 20 minutes
Cuisson : 15 minutes
Pour 4 personnes :
– 500 g dasperges vertes
– 1 échalote
– 2 dl de vin blanc
– 1 cuillère à soupe de vin blanc sec
– 1 cuillère à soupe de crème fraîche
– 1 jaune doeuf
– 70 g de beurre
– 200 g de pâte feuilletée
– sel, poivre, 1 petit bouquet de ciboulette

Rincez et « éboutez » les asperges sans les éplucher. Plongez-les dans leau bouillante salée, environ 3 à 5 minutes (piquez-les pour vérifier la cuisson). Egouttez soigneusement.
Roulez la pâte et partagez-la en 2 rectangles de 15 x 20 cm. Superposez-les et collez-le au jaune duf. Quadrillez la surface et dorez-la au pinceau, dun jaune duf dilué. Faîtes cuire 15 minutes sur une plaque à four (therm. 8 / 240 °).
Préparez la sauce. Pelez et hachez léchalote, faîtes-la bouillir dans une petite casserole avec le vin blanc, le sel et le poivre. Ajoutez un jaune duf et la crème, et faîtes chauffer au bain-marie jusquà légère coagulation avant dincorporer peu à peu le beurre en noisette, puis la ciboulette hachée.
Quand le feuilleté est bien gonflé, il est cuit. Dédoublez-le et posez quelques asperges nappées de sauce. Recouvrez de lautre partie qui tient lieu de « chapeau ». Servez bien chaud pour que le feuilleté reste croustillant.
Bon appétit !
