If you're selling your home in a challenging real estate market, it needs to stand out from the competition. Buyers in a buyers market are particularly discerning, so you want your home to satisfy as much of their criteria as possible. Before you advertise your home on the market, look around your home and see if you should do any of these cost effective updates to your home so that potential buyers see it in a more favourable light.
