A lot of people have been asking us lately if they should make improvements before selling their home and what improvements they should focus on if they do.
The answer isn’t easy to say without physically seeing your home, but we can say that there are a number of things you can do to your home that will increase its value whether you are selling tomorrow or in a few years.
Countertops and bathroom fixtures are at the top of the list. If yours are dated or old, replace them. They will really pop if they are brand new for potential buyers, and they will still look great if you don’t plan on selling for a year or two.
The other thing you should focus on is flooring. Hold off on replacing any carpet until right before you sell the house. You can install vinyl or wood flooring any time and it will increase your home’s value.
These are just a few of the repairs that will maximize your dollar return when it comes time to sell. It also helps market your home online because these new improvements will stand out to buyers.
If you have any other questions about improving your home or real estate in general, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
