Five Summer Projects That Will Increase Your Homes Resell Value
You can make your home more appealing to buyers, even before you put your home on the market. Thinking ahead and watching trends can help you keep your home up to date, even if you are not planning to sell it for several years. Some home projects can be done by the home owner in their spare time, while other projects will require professional assistance.
Keep up with repairs and maintenance
Chipped paint or damaged siding may be just an annoying eyesore to you. A prospective buyer, however, may eliminate your home from consideration based solely on how it looks. Inside the home, outdated paneling, damaged carpets and broken fixtures will make a house look run down and unappealing.
Roofs are another area that should be properly maintained. Buyers are unlikely to be interested in a home that needs extensive repairs. Flat roof repair should be completed as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. Always use experienced roofing contractors for all roof repairs.
Update your kitchen
Kitchen remodels are a favorite option when updating a home. Although the return on investment is not what it once was, buyers love to see a nice kitchen with plenty of light.
New appliances can give your kitchen an updated look. They also tend to be more energy efficient than older models. Newer appliances can be a nice selling point, since they should last for many years. Unless you are planning an entire kitchen remodel in the future, choose appliances that seamlessly fit in with your current kitchen style.
Create storage space
Ensuring your home has enough storage areas will make it more attractive to buyers. Built-in shelves are a great option since they do not use valuable floor space. In the bedroom, a built-in bookshelf can be a future staging area for a reading nook. In the bathroom, an additional mirrored cabinet can make the room appear larger, as well as adding storage.
Boost curb appeal
New windows and doors on the front of the house, especially those that share a common design theme, can make your house look polished. Consider planting colorful, low maintenance shrubs under windows to help frame them.
Do not forget the backyardA well-designed backyard can be immensely appealing to prospective buyers. Depending on where you live, creating an outdoor living space can be an excellent investment. A welcoming stone patio with attractive landscaping, or even a small kitchen garden, can help your home stand out when it is time to sell.
