Increase Your Home’s Resale Value and Marketability With These Simple Upgrades

Although real estate markets across North America are seeing a slight slow down, there are still plenty of homeowners looking to sell their homes. But what can you do to help make your property stand out? Simple home improvements and renovations are an easy way to boost your property and capture the attention of buyers across the board. Invest in your home’s appearance by prioritizing some of these simple renovations/upgrades to help increase your home’s marketability and overall value when it hits the market.

Simple and Attainable Fixes

.

Garage Door Replacement

For those homeowners with a garage, an outdated or broken garage door can be an appeal killer to potential buyers. The good news for sellers is that a garage door replacement in 2022 has the highest return on investment (ROI) for remodeling projects at 93.3%. The benefits of replacing your garage door are two-fold: not only does it help with your home’s overall curb appeal, a new garage door can increase your home’s security, is more energy efficient, and newer models come with features to protect people and animals from accidental injury.

.

Entry Door Replacement

Another project that can help boost your home’s curb appeal and overall market value is replacing the entry door. One of the most important aspects of your home is the front door as it’s the first thing buyers look at as they walk into the house. Broken, dented, and decaying doors can immediately sour a potential buyer’s interest, so making the small investment in a new door is a great idea if your home is sitting on the market. 2022 numbers have “entry door replacement” at a ROI of 63.8%, meaning it’s a sound investment if your property needs a boost with buyers.

.

Landscaping

Not every seller has a yard, but for those that do, investing in landscaping is an easy way to boost your home’s overall appeal and capture the eye of potential buyers. Across North America, agents have reported buyers attaching more value to a home if the yard is landscaped. NALP members and REALTORS in NAR’s 2018 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features ranked a standard lawn care service as the number one project that appeals to buyers, and that landscape maintenance and tree care recovered 100 percent of the costs at the time of sale. Depending on the size of the yard, sprucing up your property’s landscaping can be a good way to boost value and help develop more interest in your listing.

Bigger Heavy Hitters

.

Minor Kitchen Remodel

Kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a house, and many buyers want to see functional and good looking kitchens in the properties they choose to view. If your kitchen is outdated, a minor kitchen remodel could help boost your home’s value and overall appeal. Minor kitchen remodels can include replacing cabinets and counter tops; replacing cabinet and drawer fronts; updating hardware; replacing appliances; installing a new sink and faucet; installing new flooring; and aesthetic changes like new paint and trim. The name of the game is minor changes – there’s no need to take out walls or break your bank account. A simple kitchen refresh can catch the eye of many potential buyers, and at over 70% ROI, this is a great option for those sellers looking to make their home stand out.

.

Window Upgrades

Windows are an important part of any property, and if your home has old windows, it’s possible they could be dissuading buyers from looking at your house. While windows can be an expensive update for those properties with tons of windows, they do have an excellent ROI (67.5%) and they come with a number of benefits: enhanced home security and safety, improved energy efficiency, noise reduction, and improved overall curb appeal. Windows can be a big decision when it comes to renovations, but they will absolutely appeal to buyers and help your home sell.

.

New Siding

Siding can really make or break a home, and for some buyers, homes with old, decayed, warped, or just odd siding can immediately make them skip a showing. Just like replacing windows, replacing siding isn’t ‘cheap’ – it’s an investment, especially for those with big homes. But new siding comes with a number of benefits: a high ROI (68.3% for fiber cement; 67.2% for vinyl), increased curb appeal, improved energy efficiency, and overall longevity (vinyl siding can last between 20-40 years, and fiber cement siding can last up to 50 years). New siding is a great selling point and highly marketable. With real estate markets slowing down, for some owners it may feel like their home will never sell. Sometimes the homeowner needs to help the process. Upgrades can certainly help boost a home that’s been sitting as well as help add to the resale value of the home.

Prepping Your Home for Sale

Prepping Your Home For A Successful Sale

Prepping Your Home For A Successful Sale

When you’re ready to sell your home, doing a little preparation beforehand can potentially help your home sell quicker and for a higher price. 

Maximize Curb Appeal
Getting buyers through the front door starts at the curb. Manicure the lawn, trim the trees and shrubs. Pull weeds and plant some colorful flowers. Clear the walkways. Fix peeling paint and wind up that hose. Paint the address number on the curb.

Make Repairs to Visible Blemishes
Is there something that’s an eyesore, but an easy fix? If looking at it bothers you, it could bother a potential buyer and reduce the appeal of your home. Replace burnt-out light bulbs, fix that loose door handle, and make needed paint touch-ups.

Make a Buyer’s Entrance Inviting
Freshly paint the front door with a color that contrasts the house. Add a new welcome mat and hang a fresh wreath on the door.

Let the Light Shine In
Remove heavy window coverings to let in the natural light we all crave and add lamps to brighten up darker areas to add more cheer.

Remove the Clutter
This serves two purposes.

  • First, you want your home to have an open and inviting appearance. Removing clutter will make rooms appear larger and more appealing.
  • Second, it helps YOU prepare to move. Going through the clutter and getting rid of what you don’t need will make your move much easier.

Remove Personal Items
It will be much easier for potential buyers to imagine your home as theirs when they can envision their own items in it.

Highlight Special Features
Use accents and color to draw eyes to special features that you want potential buyers to notice—throw pillows, plants, or other eye-catching accessories.

Add Mirrors
Use mirrors to make rooms look larger and lighter. Position opposite windows for best effect.

Clean Out Cabinets and Closets
Buyers are nosy and they WILL open the cabinets. Make sure your contents are orderly and organized.

Eliminate Odors
Clean to remove any odors and do not cook any meals with heavy, lasting smells before a showing.

Add Aromas
You can easily add appeal by quartering an orange and adding it to a pot of water with a cinnamon stick. Simmer on low for an inviting aroma. Or bake a fresh batch of cookies (and leave a plate of them on the counter for visitors).

If you are ready to put your house on the market, call me today. I would love to help you!
