If you’re getting ready to place your home on the market, you may want to consider special upgrades to increase the overall value of the property. Not all upgrades are worthy of attention. Let’s take a closer look at what upgrades help sell a house.

🌳 Improve Curb Appeal

Start by power washing or painting the home’s exterior. Remember to inspect gutters and other elements that you may overlook during normal upkeep. The first thing the buyer notices is the front door, so consider painting it a color that enhances the overall appeal of your home to make it look inviting.

Improving the landscaping is also important because it creates value when selling a home. This can be done by refreshing mulch, trimming shrubs, and planting colorful, seasonal plants around the house.

🍽️ Invest in Kitchen Upgrades

Experts have described the kitchen as the heart of the home. The right colors, textures, and appliances are essential in improving the kitchen’s appeal. Start with a neutral backdrop and add pops of color for interest.

If your appliances are dated, you may want to upgrade to the latest stainless steel that has a wide appeal. Other things to upgrade include cabinets, countertops, fixtures, and cabinet hardware.

🛁 Update the Bathroom

Remodeling the bathroom will make a big impact in the home by enhancing its efficiency and modern outlook. Studies have shown that even a minor bathroom remodel can yield up to 102% return on investment.

Bathroom upgrades include re-grouting the tiles and replacing caulk around the shower, tub, and toilet areas. In addition, consider replacing the bathroom’s mirrors and fixtures.

Change the Flooring

New flooring can make your home appealing to a broader range of buyers. Check with your real estate agent to see what’s most popular in your area. Some buyers prefer hardwood floors over carpeting, and it may be worthwhile to upgrade carpeted areas if it means added value to your home.
