Improvements before Selling ?

Q. What improvements should I make before I put my house on the market?

A. That depends on multiple factors, including your budget, when you plan to sell, the overall housing market and the other homes in your neighborhood. You’ll want to do some research and talk to a real estate professional. However, here are some basic improvements that usually pay off:

  • Fresh interior paint. Neutral colors will appeal to more buyers.

  • Improved curb appeal. Consider new exterior paint, landscaping work or adding a deck or covered patio.

  • Kitchen upgrades. A total kitchen remodel can be costly. You can enhance the look of the space by replacing the countertops and cabinets.

  • Bathroom improvements. In lieu of a remodel, consider giving your bathrooms a face-lift with new lighting and flooring.

  • Adding more functional space. Finishing your basement or converting an attic into a bedroom will add value to your home.
