Putting your home on the market is easy. It’s the preparation that might make it a bit more challenging. You could simply try to sell your home as it is, but don’t expect to get top dollar if it simply isn’t worth that much. Every contractor as well as every real estate agent knows any home can become more valuable with a few well-planned changes.
Replace Your Front Door
Is the front door looking a little worse for wear and the facade of your home exuding nothing but boredom? It’s a good idea to start shopping for a new front door. It’s not as expensive as a siding replacement, but a front door upgrade is a great investment. Look for charcoal shades or black as these darker colors are becoming more attractive to buyers since they look classy. Don’t disregard a hardware upgrade, a new knocker or a new doorbell, either; each one is also inexpensive, but these can get you a few approval points from buyers.
Upgrade Storage Areas
Space-saving storage has become fashionable. Every square inch of living space matters, and space-saving storage supports that idea. Kitchen and bathroom cabinets deserve an upgrade, but clever storage solutions incorporated in different areas of the home are most welcome. Practical storage systems in the kitchen instead of the usual cupboards and built-in bookshelves, sliding barn door shelves, etc. all make a statement that attracts people. Best of all, they’re not expensive upgrades.
Build a Deck or Patio
Make the outdoors a huge selling point. The best way to do this is by building a new deck or patio, where the new owners can enjoy entertaining their friends and family, or simply spending some alone time close to nature. Add patio doors with huge glass areas to welcome more natural light into the home.
