It's the buyer's market out there, and this has caused homeowners to settle for under the evaluated rates. Only the exceptional houses are being purchased at their market value, and here are some simple tricks to make your home exceptional.

Open Spaces
The new home owner is looking for open floor plans. Large family friendly spaces, so knock down any non-structural wall; for example tearing down the wall between your kitchen and your den is very popular. For a couple hundred bucks, you can transform your home to be more appealing to a larger audience.

Make your yard more appealing
Landscaping isn't a huge investment, but it can make all the difference in the world for the home owner. Remember selling your home is a visual communication, it's all about how appealing your home as a whole looks. A trimmed yard says you've taken care of this home and hence more appealing to the buyer.

Let the light in
It's no secret that the natural light can enhance your mood and create a positive environment. Installing sun tubes is a great modern way to let light in your home. It's an inexpensive way to make your home more appealing.

Front door
Nothing speaks to a home visitor than an extravagant entrance. It's been increasingly popular to integrate natural stone flooring to homes. Natural stones are also great for creating patterns by the entrance to make it more appealing to the eye.

Bathroom Makeover
Real estate professionals unanimously agree that upgrading kitchens and baths are a sure fire way to increase the value to your home. Upgrading your vanity top to marble and tiling your showers with natural stone can sound pricey but the return on your investment is substantially high.

Kitchen Countertops
If your kitchen counter-top isn't granite or quartz, you're falling behind the competition. Replacing your countertop will instantly make your kitchen more appealing and increase your home value.

Keep the walls neutral
A fresh coat of paint can go a long way. However, you have to keep your personal preferences to yourself. You're trying to reach a wider audience so use common colors such as white, and light beige. Wallpapers are also tough to sell, tear down your more extravagant wallpapers and place a fresh coat of white paint over it.
