The answer is different for everyone. We will assess your personal situation and make our recommendations of what we think you should do to maximize your profit. The two best investments you can make in your house are kitchen and bathroom.
If you’re thinking about investing money into home improvement projects this year, keep a few things in mind; what you’ll get back on your investment depends on the value of your house, the value of houses in your immediate neighborhood, the housing market, where you live, how soon you sell after making improvements, and the quality of the project itself.
When deciding what improvements to make for resale, be sure to put home maintenance on the list. Even in hot housing markets, the old saying is still true: “If people drive by your home and are not impressed, they’re not going to walk inside” You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. When people drive up and first see your house, you want them to immediately see the home as maintained and well cared for. However while curb appeal gets buyers in the door, sellers who want to move their homes quickly need to take other steps. The strategy varies by neighborhood and market conditions, but making small improvements to the home will appeal to the maximum number of buyers and will a make difference in how fast the home sells. Once prospective buyers are inside your home, you want to make sure the entire house puts its best foot forward. That starts with cleaning, decluttering, and doing improvements that cost little money and provide a big return.
With these little tips, your house will be ready to make its debut to potential buyers. And most importantly, your home will make a great first impression, which should result in getting top dollar quickly. Happy selling!
