Get Your Home Sold (Fast!) with These Remodeling Projects

Posted by: john | November 30, 2015

People typically view the winter as the worst time to sell their homes – but as it turns out, this isn’t the case. The coldest months can actually be a profitable time to sell your home: Maybe it’s the way it looks blanketed in freshly fallen snow, but there’s something about winter that makes buyers want to move in. So how do you make your home stand out from the crowd? We have a list of easy remodeling projects that can get your house off of the market fast.

 

Improve Your Curb Appeal

Your front porch and door are the first things prospective buyers see, so why not spend some time making them look perfect? Apply a fresh coat of paint to your door and address any peeling spots on the porch itself. Complete the look with a couple of evergreen shrubs and a freshly shoveled walk.

 

Modernize Your Counters

Refinishing you kitchen or bathroom counters is a surefire way to add a modern touch to your home. Another easy fix? Switching out your old kitchen and bathroom hardware. You want people to see the potential of your home, not a laundry list of updates they’re going to have to make.  Surface refinishing is one of the best investments that you can make; best of all, you can have the job done in a day (or two).

 

Add a Fresh Coat

Not everyone appreciates a bold accent wall. To make your house appeal to the masses, repaint your walls in friendly neutrals. Not only do they make your rooms seem brighter and bigger, they allow potential buyers to imagine themselves in your space. You may love your red kitchen, but if a buyer loathes the hue, they’re more likely to look the other way.

 

Replace (Or Add) Lighting Fixtures

A well-lit space makes your home come alive. Look to create warm lighting throughout your home, paying special attention to entryways and living areas. Swapping out your old fixtures for elegant sconces can go a long way to convince a buyer that your home is the best.

 

Pay Attention to the Basics

If you want to get a buyer in the door and sign on the dotted line, pay attention to the basic building blocks of your home. Does your central air work? Is there a leak in the roof? Does your siding look like it’s in good shape? When homebuyers envision remodeling, they think of installing a glass-door shower or country style sink, not about buying a new furnace. Shoppers tend to take the basics for granted: If they find a fundamental flaw in your home, they’ll simply look somewhere else. Make sure your basic home functions are operating smoothly – before you put your house on the market.

 

Selling your home is stressful for some people, but it doesn’t have to be. When you make some proactive switches and attend to basic maintenance, you’ll be surprised at how quickly your beloved abode sells.
