These three points will help you improve your home and sell for more money.
What improvements will increase the value of your home? This is the question that every seller wants the answer to. If you’ve been thinking about preparing for the upcoming spring market or you’re ready to make a move now that the market looks like it has topped out, you may be under the impression that any improvement you make is going to increase your dollar return. However, not all upgrades are created equal. To help you decide what to prioritize, we have a list of three things you should focus on when preparing your home:
- Create more usable space. A recent research report by HomeLight says that the No. 1 thing today’s buyers are looking for is more usable space. During the pandemic, people had to figure out how to live, work, play, and study in one home, and that’s still impacting buyers today. Whether you move a wall, stage a room for more space, or any other method, creating space will benefit you.
“This will help you get the most bang for your buck.”
- Ramp up your curb appeal. It has happened many times that a buyer will come to a house and completely discount it because of how it looks on the outside. Most agents agree with this. It’s important to consider your first impression with your curb appeal.
- Improve your outdoor space. The motivation for this one is similar to the previous two points. People want a house that looks good on the outside and that gives them even more usable space. You could give your porch a fresh coat of paint, fix any broken pieces, stage your patio with furniture, create a firepit area, and more.
These three points will help you get the most bang for your buck. Remember, there’s no guarantee of dollar-for-dollar return—in fact, it’s rare. However, do your research, and you’ll be able to find out what’s best. If you want help selling your home to get the most money possible, contact us!
