Selling a home can be stressful, but we have compiled a list of five renovations that should be done prior to putting a home on the market to ensure homeowners get the best price for their home in the fastest time possible.
These are our top five:
- A fresh coat of neutral paint: A fresh coat of paint can certainly elevate a home's appearance, and neutral colors are the best to choose. The neutral colors allow potential buyers to best visualize the colors they will want when they buy the home.
- Update the bathroom: A bathroom is a place many potential buyers focus on, so it is important to make sure it’s looking and functioning in tip-top shape. Updating fixtures in the bathroom can help increase the value.
- Make the home more energy efficient: Many potential buyers look for energy-efficient appliances and upgrades that have been made. In addition to helping sell the house, it can also help in lowering energy bills, so it is a win-win!
- Update flooring: Flooring is another aspect many potential buyers often lay emphasis on, so whether it is replacing an old carpet with a new one, or updating to wood floors, this can drastically improve the value and desirability of a home.
- Update curb appeal - including the front door: Adding some shrubs or putting a fresh coat of paint on the front door can help sell a home. Although we are taught not to judge a book by its cover, that is exactly what potential home buyers do, so it is important to ensure the home looks as good outside as it does in.
