Cleaning Floors, such as wooden, linoleum or tile shouldn’t cost you more than $50 in cleaning materials, depending on the number of different rooms you are planning on cleaning.

Some windows also may need staining, but that too should cost you less than $50 in stain costs.

What about your Doors ?- Well like your windows, just cleaning them up alone can add value to your house. Its amazing that many doors look they are 20 years old, but only because they are dirty and nothing a good cleaning cant handle to make them look like new. Or maybe your doors are either stained or painted. You can easily restain or paint your door at a minimum cost, easily for under $50. There are several do-it-yourself tips on the internet that can help and instruct you to do this.

Declutter- Lets face it, decluttering your home has some good values. Not only can it impress a potential buyer if you are looking to sell it, but  its a way of getting rid of that junk that just makes your home look like a big mess and that you really dont care about it. This could make a potential home buyer wonder, if you cant even keep your house clean of clutter and organized, how many other things of the house have gone neglected, which could easily change their minds of them buying your home.  The costs to decluttering is pretty much your time, unless you are doing a major decluttering overhaul which requires you to rent a dumpster, but still a cost that is worth its investment
