Preparing for the Big Sell

There often comes a time in a homeowner’s life where reselling is necessary. Whether you’re looking to upscale or downscale, moving homes is a part of life. But if you view your house as an investment, as everyone should, you may be wondering how to get the most money out of selling your home. Luckily, home improvement projects are a great way to add value to your property. We know you might be worried. How big do these projects have to be to add thousands of dollars in value to your home? The answer is “not very big.” If you’re surprised, then you aren’t alone. Small projects like remodeling a bathroom, upgrading the kitchen, and adding a deck can net you hundreds if not thousands during the sale. Add some of these to your project list to make your resale value soar sky-high.

The Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling a bathroom is one of the best home improvement projects in general. But it’s also one of the most accessible and valuable renovations to your home. And you don’t have to go too upscale to make this project happen. To get the most return, replace the tile, update the fixtures, swap out the toilet, and revamp the countertops. There’s plenty of inspiration online, or you can link up with a professional service. Even small bathrooms can be remodeled and add plenty of value to your sale.

Replacing the Kitchen Cabinets

Making additions to the kitchen, in general, is one of the best home improvements before selling. But there is one straightforward project that will make the entire thing look better: upgrading your kitchen cabinets. Updating these cabinets is a great way to add value to the kitchen, and it won’t require you to replace appliances or overhaul an island. If you only have time for a few projects before selling, this is one you need to prioritize. 

Adding a Deck

A deck is another great home improvement project, and this addition alone will add thousands to your home’s overall worth. Though this project is one of the most complicated, you can do it easily with the right tools and experience. And if you already have a deck, then a new coat of stain or expansion can be a great project.

Finding the Time

Now that you have a few ideas, it’s time to sit down and plan out your chosen projects. Keep in mind the average time a task will take and when you look to sell your home. If any of these projects pique your interest, then be sure to do plenty of research before you start. Strive to find a balance between quality and cost. The idea is to get a great return on your efforts. And if you’re struggling with any of these projects, then Minnesota Home Improvements is always here to help.
