Home Upgrades That Will Help Your Home Sell

Even when the market is hot, you need to make sure that your home stands above the rest! One way you can do this is by completing some simple home upgrades that don't break the bank, but will have a major return when the offers land on the table. Here are four small things you can do to help your home sell:

Window Treatments: Windows are a big deal for buyers. The Spruce writes, "dreary draperies, torn window shades, or bent mini-blinds will do nothing to sell a home faster. Remove these outdated items and replace them with simple white mini-blinds or wood blinds cut-to-measure at a home center. This is a fairly simple fix that can refresh your rooms in just one weekend."

Smart Home Technology: Many of today's home buyers are Millennials and Gen Z, both of which appreciate the value of smart technology. Zillow writes, "smart thermostats are a popular and relatively easy addition. Zillow research finds homes that mention smart lights in their listing description sold seven days faster than expected." 

Wall Colors: You know what they say: a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. The Spruce writes, "when repainting with an intent to sell, neutral colors are best. But that doesn't mean that everything begins and ends with white. There is any number of neutral colors, including a range of soothing gray tones that could be just what they're looking for." 

Bathroom Refresh: Bathrooms tend to be the most hit-or-miss element of a home. Give yours a refresh to keep buyers excited about your home. Zillow writes, "replace the vanity lights for a more updated look. Recaulk or reglaze the tub instead of replacing. Upgrade fixtures with a spa ambiance in mind, like putting in a rain shower head."
