If you plan to put your house on the market soon, you may wonder which remodeling projects will attract the most attention from potential buyers and give you the biggest return on investment (ROI). Consider the buyer’s perspective when making decisions about which projects will most help you sell your house. This may be hard when you’re especially fond of certain features in your home. Here are a few remodeling projects that will usually help buyers notice the beauty that you’ve seen all along.
Make a Great First Impression
Take a good look at your home’s exterior. Does the curb appeal need a little boost? A fresh coat of paint on your front door can create a clean, welcoming entry for potential buyers. However, if it needs to be replaced, give that some consideration. According to TheMotleyFool.com, it’s possible to recoup up to 91% of your investment in a new front door.
Spruce Up Your Living Space
Simply clearing clutter and unused furniture can instantly enhance a room. Think about repainting interior walls after decluttering. Painting is a relatively inexpensive improvement, and upgrading color with a neutral, on-trend palette allows buyers to envision themselves living in the house.
Pay Attention to Your Kitchen
Your kitchen can make or break the deal. Crunch the numbers before deciding whether kitchen upgrades will be worth the expense. As noted by MillionAcres.com, “At an average cost of $26,214, you’re likely to add $18,927 of resale value to your property – 72% of your cost.” If you’d rather not live in a construction zone, simple fixes like new hardware or an updated backsplash provide an easy facelift for your kitchen.
