If you’re thinking that you might put your home on the market in the next few years you may be wondering if there are things that you can do that will enhance its resale value.
You’ll be happy to learn that the answer is yes. There are improvements that you can make that can help you both enjoy your home more today while adding to its resale price in the future.
Upgrades to your landscaping
The exterior of your home is the first thing a potential homebuyer is going to notice. If you’ve been toying with the idea of making upgrades to your landscaping, you should know that an upgrade can enhance your home’s curb appeal.
While we’re on the topic of curb appeal, upgrading address numbers that are on your home and/or upgrading your mailbox are also excellent choices.
Other exterior upgrades
Do you remember the last time your house was painted? Do you have vinyl siding that hasn’t been power washed in you-can’t-remember how long? If you have older shutters and doors, replacing these can both increase your home’s curb appeal and its resale value. Replacing old, wrought iron railings with real wood support can also do wonders.
Minor upgrades / changes to bathrooms
When it comes to remodeling your bathroom there are many things you can do to spruce it up visually that don’t involve breaking the bank. Are the wall coverings outdated? Could your bathroom benefit from a fresh coat of paint? Does your bathroom still have vinyl flooring? Repainting, reflooring and upgrading fixtures can make a huge difference.
When most people think about updating their kitchen they’re concerned about the time and expense that’s involved. Yet there are ways you can refresh its look without doing a full remodel. Upgrading appliances, countertops and flooring and adding new fixtures to doors and cabinets can help give your kitchen a clean, updated look without the expense (and hassle) of having a construction crew take over your house.
