Are you putting your home on the market in hopes of selling during the spring or summer season? You can quickly increase the value of your home, as well as increase the chances of a quick sale, by choosing to invest in simple upgrades that can make a big difference. Here are a few ways to spruce up your home before it goes on the market.
Paint the Walls
Giving your walls, baseboards, and trim a fresh coat of paint can sound time-consuming and arduous. However, the finished product will be well worth it. Aim for a neutral color palette to entice homebuyers, choosing light gray or white tones. Remember, you want buyers to walk into your home and picture it as their own. Neutral walls and fresh trim can make a big impact. If painting is not your forte, invest in professionals to get it done quickly and well.
Take a walk around your home and look at things from the eyes of a homebuyer. Most buyers do not necessarily want to purchase a fixer-upper or a home with multiple maintenance issues. Take time now to perform basic maintenance tasks that will make your home seem loved and cared for. Not sure how to fix the wiggling toilet or squeaking door? Hire a professional to fix items on your list.
Invest in Landscaping and Exterior Improvements
Curb appeal means a lot to buyers and having a freshly painted front door or blooming flowers in the yard can set a positive tone for your entire home tour. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make your home’s exterior look amazing. However, if your house’s siding, roof, door, or sidewalk are damaged, it’s wise to make those repairs now.
Partner with an Attorney
Even before your home goes on the market, choose to partner with an experienced real estate attorney. You’ll love knowing someone is advocating for your best interests throughout the entire selling process, including through closing.
