Even if your home isn’t the newest house in town, you can still get a great price when it’s time to sell. If you’ve done your research and are worried your home isn’t competitive enough to get high offers in the wake of the pandemic, know that you don’t have to accept a low price for your home. The following resources detail the most important projects to tackle before listing in order to maximize your home’s sale price.
Easy Projects to Impress Buyers
First impressions have a big impact on buyers’ perceptions of your home’s value. Thankfully, some of the easiest and most affordable projects are ones that help your home make a good first impression.
Bigger Projects to Boost Value
Once the must-dos are out of the way, consider additional ways you can increase your home’s value without spending too much yourself. Assuming your home doesn’t need major repairs, most updates should focus on improving your home’s appearance rather than altering its form or function.
Repairs You’ll Need to Make
If you’re planning on selling your home, there are some repairs you’ll have to make or else you may risk buyers walking away from the sale.
If getting the best price for your home is a priority for you, you have a lot to gain by improving before you sell. These projects won’t turn a $200,000 home into a $300,000 home, but they may put several thousand more dollars in your pocket when you sell your home. In turn, the profits from your sale can help you make a strong offer on your next home.
