Is selling your home in the near or distant future? If you are even considering putting your home on the market in the next 3-5 years, it is time to begin thinking about projects that will add to the resale value of your home. When sellers consider resale value, they can become nervous that a seriously expensive kitchen or bathroom upgrade is on the horizon. Fortunately, you don’t have to invest in a new kitchen to increase the value of your home.
Instead, focus on curb appeal. Buyers are more likely to tour your home and make an offer if the outside of your house looks great. Here are a few updates you can add to your project list in order to increase the resale of your home.
Buyers love new windows for a few reasons. First, new windows look great and can update the look of a home very quickly. Next, new windows are an investment and sellers will love that they won’t have to worry about purchasing new windows for the home for years. Their home offer will reflect that. Finally, new windows are more energy-efficient and eco-friendly than outdated or old windows. Buyers will appreciate knowing they will not have sky-high utility bills when they move in.
New Front Door
A new front door can go a long way when it comes to curb appeal. Whether you choose a custom door to add to the architecture of the house or a vibrantly colored one, a front door can increase curb appeal and hook the interest of new buyers.
Updated Sliders or French Doors
While you are thinking about doors, consider updating any slider or French door throughout your home as well. Remember, curb appeal mostly focuses on the front of your home, but buyers will love to see beautiful sliders leading to the backyard as well.
