If your resolution was to sell your house this year, hang on before you put a “For Sale” sign in your driveway. Are you getting the most return on investment (ROI)? Consider updating these 4 items prior to listing your home to increase your ROI.
Exterior Curb Appeal
Take a good look at the outside of your house. Does it look a little dated? Time to freshen things up! Quick ways to do this: paint the house, change the color of your front door, replace siding, add a sitting area on your porch, update lighting fixtures, etc. On average, this little facelift can produce a 95% ROI.
This is an easier task to take on yourself, but also don’t be afraid to reach out for help if you feel your greenthumb is lacking. Upgrade the mulch, trim the bushes, add in pops of color with flowers, and/or install a walkway. Typically people will notice a FULL (100%) ROI.
Who doesn’t love an up-to-date kitchen?! In order to get the most ROI (on average 98%) for your investment, you should: change up your cabinet doors (think paint or a new stain), new countertops, under cabinet lighting, and update hardware. These little touches make all the difference to prospective buyers.
A bit more of an undertaking, but most people recoup all their costs…and then some on minor bathroom remodels! For this minor improvement: replace the tub, update flooring, add new lighting fixtures and hardware, and add new tile surround. These fixes, on average, create a 102% ROI!
