Friday, May 19th, 2017 at 6:00pm Jones Grover Team

If you have an older home, chance are, it might be showing its age a little bit. However, there are a few upgrades you can make that won't break the bank but will still provide that rejuvenation that you need. Check out these simple changes that can make a big impact on your older Sun Valley home.

Sensor Lights
Outdoor lighting is incredibly important, especially as buyers continue to place a larger emphasis on home security. However, adding motion activated sensors will really make your house feel newer. Not only will they reduce electricity costs by only turning on when necessary, but will also give prospective buyers a sense of security. Just be careful with the sensitivity of those sensors. In the Sun Valley area, we have a lot of wildlife that could trigger the sensors. The last thing you will want is for your porch to become a strobe light for the neighborhood because the local herd of deer like to feast on your bushes at night.

Keyless Entry
Are you always losing your keys? Or maybe just want to simplify how you get in and out of your home. You can easily replace your traditional door locks with either a keypad or bluetooth enabled door locks. These high-tech door locks will sense your cell phone and automatically unlock as you approach the door. This is a great first impression to make on buyers as they enter your home.

Fresh Mulch
In order to perk up your outdoors even more, there is no need to landscape your whole yard. That can be quite costly and maybe not pay off when it comes to sale price. However, a fresh coat of mulch can make it appear as if you have brand new landscaping without the costs associated.
