Install a thermostat you can program through your phone:
Heating your home accounts for more than 40% of it’s total energy, which is why it’s important to keep your home at a constant temperature instead of using up energy by constantly reheating your home after the heat is turned off.

With energy costs on the rise, many buyers will greatly appreciate this money saving feature.
Update your fixtures:
Updating old and worn down fixtures can make a huge impact on the way buyers view your home. New kitchen cabinets can be spendy and take a lot of time to finish, opt for exchanging out your bathroom and kitchen faucets and all the handles and knobs on your drawers and cabinets. Your potential buyers will love seeing updated fixtures and you get to enjoy it in the meantime!
