Spring Improvements to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

Spring Improvements to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value  

Thinking of selling your home? We’re here to share some easy springtime renovations to provide the greatest return on your investment. While spring cleaning can be fun, a spring renovation can give you the biggest bang for your buck! 

Replace the garage door.

Replacing the garage door not only contributes to fantastic curb appeal, but the functionality will grab the attention of potential buyers. Upgrade to a more modern door with windows and smart control features. 

Install a kitchen backsplash. 

Kitchen remodels make a huge impact on the resale value of a home. Doing small weekend projects such as replacing or adding a backsplash can make a dramatic difference in your kitchen design. Make it as easy as laying tile one day and grouting the next for a quick home improvement. 

Update the popcorn ceilings. 

Yes, it is time to update those outdated popcorn ceilings. It is a fairly simple process you can do on your own with a few products from the home improvement store. This is an easy and affordable way to spruce up your home with minimal cost and effort. 

Re-roof your house. 

The exterior of your home is the first thing a potential buyer will notice. Make the best first impression by addressing your current roof. You do not always have to completely re-roof your home. There are options including single shingle replacement, partial replacement, or complete roof over. If you think your current roof will be a topic of discussion when listing your home, add this repair to the top of the list.

Address the hardware and fixtures. 

What seems like a minor detail can make a lasting impression with your potential buyers. Contemporize your outdated hardware and light fixtures to give a more stylish and fresh appearance. 

Stay neutral.

Finally, when making home improvements, remember to stay neutral. Whether you change the color of your siding, cabinets, or walls, you can appeal to more buyers by keeping the color scheme simple throughout. Neutral tones make it easier for potential buyers to envision what they could do with the space. Neutral colors make it easy for them to paint over if need be.

These tips can help result in a quicker, higher-priced home sale. If you’re looking for a place to put your savings for your new home, we’re here to help. We also have the area’s only Mortgage Heroes to help you purchase your dream home.
