Before you sell your home, it’s important to consider the ways in which you can add value. Not only will this make your home more attractive to potential buyers, it can also yield a greater profit. This means that you’ll actually be getting paid to make home improvements. How can you go wrong?
So, what are some home improvements that you should consider before selling your home? We’ll be examining four below, and then we’ll be examining four more in a later post!
- Time to Paint: When’s the last time the walls in your home got a fresh coat of paint? It’s been a while hasn’t it? Well, now’s the time to get out the paintbrushes! When you do this, make sure that you consult an interior designer (or someone in the know) for the most popular colors. You want a color that appeals to today’s market, and one that brings out the natural qualities that make your home sellable.
- Go Green: The hidden cost of owning a home is paying the utility bills for all of the appliances that go in it. Given rising energy costs these days, it simply makes sense to go as green as possible. So, take a look at that old washer and dryer set, or consider upgrading your refrigerator to something more efficient. All of this adds value to your home, which can then be extracted when you sell.
- Landscaping: There are very few people who look forward to tending to all of the grass and greenery around a home. Therefore, take a look at what you’ve got going on outside. Is it hard to maintain or is it easy to maintain? If it’s hard, then consider taking steps toward making your outdoor spaces as easy to maintain as possible.
- Eliminate Popcorn Ceilings: If you’ve got an older home, then there’s a chance that you’ve got popcorn ceilings. You know you hate it, and so do potential homebuyers. So, get rid of it. It’s not that expensive to do, and it can dramatically alter the amount of money you get from the sale of your home.
So, there are four home improvement tips for getting more value from your home. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt to work with a realtor who puts more money in your pocket. So, why not choose to work with the experts at We Say Sold, who ensure that you get the most profit by only charging a flat fee?
