Are you planning to sell your home in the near future? If so, you may want to consider making a few updates to increase the value of your home. Even if you’re not planning to sell your home, you never know when a big promotion across the state or country might come up, so it’s always a good idea to be prepared. Here are a few updates to your home to consider if you’re looking to increase the value:
- Update your outdoor living spaces to wow buyers.
- Make small fixes throughout the home.
- Update the “money” rooms like bathrooms and the kitchen.
- Have a new garage door installed.
- Install new floors throughout from Monarch Carpets!
Outdoor living spaces that wow are truly one of the best ways to increase the value of a home. At the very least, they help prospective buyers “see” themselves in a home, which might increase the chance of them putting in an offer. Consider adding or updating a patio or deck to make the space good for outdoor entertaining.
Another tip is to make small fixes throughout the house. If prospective buyers walk through the house and see a bunch of small issues, even things as small as cracked drywall, peeling paint, or scratched woodworking, it all adds up and can become overwhelming. Do a thorough walkthrough of your home and make a list of small fixes to make. It might seem insignificant but in the long run it can help you secure a buyer for your home.
The kitchens and bathrooms are the best places to put significant renovation dollars into. That’s because they fetch the most return on your investment, which is always good. However, if you decide to update the kitchen and bathroom with the intent to sell, be sure to not get too eccentric with your design.
It might seem odd, but a new garage door can help increase the value of your home. It’s one of the first things people see when they pull up to a home and if yours is old, outdated or damaged, it’s a good idea to be proactive and get a new one!
If you really want to wow potential buyers, having new floors installed is the best course of action. Worn floors can immediately make buyers turn their noses up at a home, especially if those old floors are dirty, smelly carpets! If you really want to impress buyers, hardwood or high-quality laminate floors throughout the living areas can make a bold statement. A quick tile change in bathrooms and swapping out old carpets in bedrooms can also add a fresh look and feel to your home.
