Remodeling Your Home Can Boost Its Value

While my wife and I loved our home at first, after a few years, we started craving a change in scenery. We thought about remodeling it to see if that would give us the change we were looking for, but we worried that if we were still bored of our home after the remodeling project, we would have just "wasted" our money before putting it on the market. That mentality changed when we learned that some home remodeling projects can boost the value of your home greatly and even help it sell more quickly after it is put onto the market! We soon had our kitchen upgraded and a few other changes to our home and found out that it really was the change we were craving. I learned a lot about home renovations during the remodeling process, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips on!

Ways You Can Easily Spruce Up Your Home's Appearance For A Summer Sale

When you have to sell your home, there can be quite a number of items on your to-do list with deferred maintenance and upkeep. Along with replacing any of the home's systems and components, such as the furnace, water heater, dishwasher, and stove, your home's appearance can be lacking in some of the areas that make up the most of the home's appearance and surface space. The interior and exterior of your home depend on the condition of the walls inside and out, the flooring inside, and landscaping outside. Here are some ways you can make the appearance of your home look more polished and clean so you can sell it on the real estate market.

Repair and Paint Your Home Interior

The interior walls of your home take a great deal of wear and tear every day. The more contact they come with pets, children, or adults, the more fingerprints, scratches, and dents along the walls and baseboards. Overtime, this damage collects and turns your pristine walls into a canvas waiting to be fixed.

First, you should use a drywall repair compound to fill in any small dents, holes, or scratches before you apply any new primer and paint. If there are any large holes, apply a wall patch square over the area, then apply a repair compound and sand the area smooth before you prime and paint.

Look at painting your home in a white or a neutral color, such as beige or light grey. Many homes on the market today showcase the popular grey tones on their walls, which can make your home look up to date and ready for a buyer. Keep the trim and baseboards painted white, as well as the ceilings. A white ceiling makes your room appear larger and the ceiling higher.

Be sure you set drop cloths over your flooring and tape over any fixtures and trim you don't want to be painted. You can also hire a painting professional like those at Klenosky Paint to complete the job with no stress or mess on your part. They can have the work completed much quicker with a team of painters and get your home ready more quickly than you could.

Add Fresh Landscaping

The exterior of your home is one of the first things a buyer will see, and it can greatly impact their impression of your home. You don't want to leave your landscaping shabby and unkempt.

Mow and edge your lawn, pull weeds, and trim shrubbery. Also, remove any dead landscaping and replace it with new plants to freshen the exterior of your home. You can also make your landscaped areas look more rich and clean by adding mulch or bark to the surface of the soil.
