If you’re thinking of selling your home, you may look around and be overwhelmed by the upgrades, projects, and repairs surrounding you. But selling your home doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Some improvements can take you further than others. Here are some upgrades you should consider first to get the most bang for your buck as you prepare to sell!
1. Add molding.
Trim and molding make a room feel finished. These touches add elegance! Crown molding makes a room feel bigger and ceilings taller. Moldings come in abundance of styles and finishes. Choose a style that fits with current trends to add a modern element to your home.
2. Plant trees.
These guys are money makers when it comes to home value. Even if the tree is not mature yet, the promise of growth can appraise your house an addition $1,000-$10,000 depending on location, type of tree, etc.
3. Add a deck or patio.
Apparently, homeowners who add a wooden deck to their property can earn back almost 80% of their investment when it comes time to sell them home. An outdoor space is desirable to most home buyers. The cost of hiring out this add on is high, but if you’re handy (or have good friends) and can do it yourself, you can likely recoup the cost of your investment.
4. Create space for storage.
This can be the biggest pain point in a home. Where does everything go? Will it have a place? We’ve never heard someone complain about having too much storage. But the alternative… Where can you create space and offer solutions within your home? Are built-ins an option? Outdoor add-ons?
5. Paint your front exterior.
This is your firs impression to buyers. A lack of maintenance on the front of your home can have a big impact on a buyers’ perspective. Maybe you don’t need a whole new paint job, but consider pressure washing and repainting the front door a trendy color. Make your home look as nice as it is. Give potential buyers a flutter when they pull up. Thinking about selling your home and wondering where to start? Our advisors can walk you through each step of the process. We’ll be glad to take a look at your home and think of creative ways to make it appealing to potential buyers.
Not only that, but we’ll be sure to present your home as the gem it is when showing it. Call us today at (225) 218-0888!
