Selling your house is a strategic move; you need to pick the right time to put it on the market to make the most bang for your buck. But before you select a date to sell, you should probably consider renovating areas of the house to get even more money for your investment.
Read on to learn about some of our favorite renovation tips.
Fresh paint modernizes every room.
Prospective buyers can tell if the paint in a room is old and musty. Outdated paint doesn’t draw anyone in, probably because painting a room is the most tedious, aggravating chore there is.
We suggest simply purchasing a gallon or two of neutral paint and freshening up some of the rooms in the house. It won’t cost you much, and you’ll definitely have a lot more candidates at your open house asking questions and acting interested.
Start and finish a bathroom remodel.
We don’t mean a complete 360 turnaround on the current bathroom. In fact, you can pick something small and work with that, it’ll still give your house more value at the time of purchase.
What are some of our favorite suggestions? Try re-caulking the bathtub. You might also try replacing the vanity or purchasing a new shower head. If the faucet drips every so often, consider swapping it out for something more reliable before your prospective buyers schedule a tour.
Add something fun to the house that people of all ages can enjoy.
The goal in putting your house on the real estate market is to grasp buyers’ attention immediately. You don’t want to be sitting there for months on end wondering when someone will inquire or place a bid on your place.
That’s why you should add something fun to the house. Something that would interest a single homeowner, a married couple, or a family with children. Options that fall under that category include an in house movie theater with a state of the art 8K projector, an outdoor firepit, or an office turned gameroom.
Prioritize energy efficiency.
In today’s day and age, energy efficiency is uber important. It saves money and conserves the planet's resources. Everyone is hopping aboard.
That’s why we highly recommend taking energy efficient matters into your own hands before you sell your house. It’s an attractive upgrade for future homeowners and it’ll earn you more when it comes time to closing paperwork.
You can start by adding insulation to your house. You can also go another route and replace old appliances with more energy-efficient volumes. This will ultimately reduce the cost of the monthly electric bill, earn more returns on your taxes, and improve resale value for the long haul.
Simple landscaping can be a win.
The outside of your house is just as important as the inside of your house, especially when it comes to attractiveness. And it’s so easy to make small investment purchases on low maintenance curb appeal options.
Like what? Try removing high maintenance plants or trees so that the new homeowners don’t have to deal with them. You’ll also want to consider clearing weeds and edging your sidewalks and driveway. Trimming the trees and bushes will make the appearance look 10x better, and fertilizing the yard will start the season off right.
Hiring a landscaper to do all of these attention to detail to-do’s isn’t a bad idea. Look in the local suggestions and see who’s willing to do the job you want at the price you want.
Those are our starter tips. If you want more, don’t be afraid to search them up. The more you do, the better - especially if it’s at no or little cost to you!
