This Spring, Make Your Home Shine! Upgrade Curb Appeal with Confidence and Professional Assistance.
Selling your house this spring calls for more planning than in the past couple of years. The current housing market is quite different – while there are many homes available, inventory remains historically low. If a residence has stayed on the market for an extended period of time, it’s likely that buyers aren’t attracted to it – so if you want yours to sell fast and at full price, make sure that it stands out with updates and accurate pricing!
Today, homes with curb appeal that are presented well are still selling quickly, and sometimes over asking price. According to Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com:
“In a market where costs are still high and buyers can be a little choosier, it makes sense they’re going to really zero in on the homes that are the most appealing.”
As the spring buying season approaches, now is the perfect opportunity to ready your home for sale. To determine where to invest both time and money wisely, it’s critical that you collaborate with a reputable real estate expert who can help you assess which renovations will have maximum impact in your community.
Make Your Property Shine and Stand Out!
To maximize your return on investment, seek out projects that are small and manageable for you to do yourself. After all, little updates can have a huge impact on the curb appeal of any home – as Investopedia puts it:
“Curb-appeal projects make the property look good as soon as prospective buyers arrive. While these projects may not add a considerable amount of monetary value, they will help your home sell faster—and you can do a lot of the work yourself to save money and time.”
Freshening up your home with a simple paint job or power washing the exterior can make all the difference when it comes to making an excellent first impression. To ensure that you get value for money, work closely with a real estate specialist to determine cost-effective projects tailored to buyers in your neighborhood. With these small cosmetic improvements, you’ll be sure that your house will stand out!
Not All Updates Are Equally Beneficial
When deciding what you need to do to your house before selling it, remember you’re making these repairs and updates for someone else. Prioritize projects that will help you sell faster or for more money over things that appeal to you as a homeowner.
