Copper detailing is solid gold
Home sellers find that exterior detailing, including copper weather vanes, copper planters and brass doorknockers provide eye-catching curb appeal that draws potential buyers.
Copper weathervanes and other exterior details also add a touch of welcoming elegance and a perception of added value that can help keep sale prices high.
In a buyer’s market it’s important that a home stands out from other choices. Here are some low-cost fixes that can help sell your house.

Looking after wooden floors
It can be a great investment to any home to install wooden floors, whether you have new floor boards laid, have old ones renovated or whether you have laminate flooring.
It helps to add warmth, character and personality to any room that it is in but depending upon what option you take, it can cost a lot of money.
Accidents happen all of the time whether you drop some sauce or other food onto the floor, or if you spill some water on it and forget to mop it up. Things easily happen and without sorting it out, it can eventually turn into a problem for your wooden floors. The reason is dirt and grime may not seem like a problem, but if it is left it can cause marks, scuffs and scratches because it could get dragged around.
The important thing to consider is that some cleaning products could easily cause damage to the floor.
To determine what product you will need will depend on what type of finish is on the flooring. One type of wood finish would be either varnish or shellac, which is mainly used in older floors. If you have a varnish or shellac finish then you just need a simple dust mop as well as regularly sweeping and vacuuming up.
