The Upgrades You Should Make Before Selling Your Home.
Updated: Dec 9, 2022
Sometimes a home can sell with very few changes, and other times, owners will need to put in some major work to get their place off the market. While investing in some upgrades is not a guarantee to sell your home, these fixes are what potential buyers will be looking for—and could even raise your asking price.
The first thing a potential buyer will notice is the outside of your home, so why not make it stand out? Invest in some simple fixes, like fresh mulch and vibrant flowers or potted plants. If you want to go the extra mile to the outside of your home painting it is also a great option.
Nothing turns off a buyer more than worn or dirty carpets. If you have quality hardwood underneath, consider ripping up the carpet. Trust us that original hardwood flooring is WAY more appealing than carpet. Otherwise, invest in a professional cleaning or think about installing new carpeting.
Kitchen and bath
The kitchen and bath are among the biggest deal breakers in the home-buying process. A fresh coat of paint, caulking around sinks and tubs, and replacing outdated handles and fixtures with more modern finishes can go a long way. These changes can change the whole feel of the space for a buyer.
Homes are now trending toward more technologically advanced and energy-efficient features, and if you can offer buyers ways to be environmentally conscious and save money on their bills, they’ll be all in. Small changes can be made by adding a high tech thermostat and bigger advancements such as solar panels can be great selling points.
You wouldn’t want to move into a new home with a leaky roof or drafty windows, and potential buyers won’t, either. Consider handling these inconveniences before listing your home—the return on investment is worth it.

Consider making these upgrades every 5-7 years! Down the line when you are looking to sell these upgrades you have kept up with will pay off big time.
