Summer is one of the best times of the year to get your house ready to go on the market. You don’t have to worry as much about rainstorms or cold snaps messing with your work. Even if your home is already listed for sale, you can improve your market value with a few simple projects. That said, here are some projects you can tackle this summer to get your home to sell as fast as possible.
Make small updates around the house
If your home is already on the market, you don’t have time for a major remodel. Oftentimes major remodels aren’t worth it either unless your home is outdated. Unless you’re sticking around to enjoy the investment, choose to make small updates throughout your house. Some of the best updates you can make include giving your kitchen a fresh coat of paint. Installing new knobs can also give your kitchen and bathroom a fresh new look.
Rock your entryway
Your home’s entryway provides the interior curb appeal. It’s the first thing anyone will see when they enter your house. If you don’t have an entryway, consider making one. A small table with a backdrop behind it that’s a different color than the rest of the house helps make it a separate space. Another way you can improve your entryway is by giving a design boost to your front door. Keep a few plants just outside the door and give your door itself a fresh and vibrant color that complements the house. Sometimes all your home needs is a trim instead of a cut to look fresh and clean.
Get your yard in shape
There’s a reason why curb appeal is such a major topic. It’s because it works. Landscaping can increase the resale value of your home by 14%. Clean up your yard and consider doing some professional landscaping. Once your yard is in shape, keep it in shape. Up to 90% of Americans believe it’s important that a yard is well-maintained.
