5 Upgrades to Make to Your Home Before Selling

  • By

When our Clients are listing their homes, a common question we get is asking what upgrades should be made. Although every home is different, there are 5 upgrades we recommend most.

1. Paint
A fresh coat of paint can greatly improve the appearance of your home when selling. It brightens things up and creates a clean look. We always recommend staying away from bright colors, because it can easily discourage a potential buyer. Neutral colors are the perfect go-to.

2. Landscaping
The exterior of the home is the first impression a potential buyer has of your home. Curb appeal is a big deal! Simple yard clean up and some fresh landscaping can go a long way.

3. Flooring
Upgraded flooring not only makes your home look great, but it also increases your home value depending on your selection. Tile, plank, and vinyl flooring are favorites buyers search for. If possible, avoid carpeting main living areas and stick to bedrooms only.

4. Bathroom Update
This doesn't mean you need to break the bank and spend thousands on a new renovation. You can make simple updates like a freshly painted vanity, new bathroom faucets/showerheads, and new light fixtures. You'd be amazed at how big of a difference those quick fixes can make.

5. Light Fixtures
New light fixtures can make a world of difference in your home. They can easily make your home look as though you just did a serious remodel. It's the little details that go a long way.
