Tips to spruce up your home. (KTRK)

If you are about to put your house on the market, or just want to spruce it up a bit, you don't have to break the bank to do it.
Credit.com put together some inexpensive things you can do to quickly add value to your home.

First, break out the paint because a fresh coat will make things look newer. And make sure you use neutral colors. Real estate experts say buyers like that.
Next, upgrade your appliances. You don't need to replace them all, they just mostly need to match. If one appliance is a different color, that's OK. You can use it as a focal point to help with the sale.

Also, change your door knobs. They can be a nice detail to upgrade. But make sure whatever you pick that they fit your home.

Finally, you can replace the light fixtures. The right ones can make an old home look newer and modern. You can also look at replacing the outlet switch plates as well.
