Exterior Upgrades to Increase the Value of Your Home

Spring is on the way and while we could still see measurable snow through April here in Chicagoland, March is a great month to begin planning your home improvement project list. If you are planning on selling your home, the spring season is especially important as most buyers begin to actively look for their next purchase. You can increase the value of your home, as well as boost your curb appeal, by adding a few home improvement projects to your list this season. Buyers will love the new look, and you will love the return you get on your investment.

New Siding

Old or outdated siding can make your home look dull, dingy, and rundown. If you are looking for a quick way to breathe new life into your home’s exterior, investing in siding is the way to go. Not only can new siding lure buyers in by boosting curb appeal, but new siding can also improve energy efficiency.

Excellent Landscape Plans

Buyers are looking at the outside of your home first, making their first decisions before even stepping foot inside. An easy to maintain and beautiful landscape plan is a wise investment. Work with a landscape planner if you are not quite sure how to make your front and side yards look their best. Most buyers prefer pops of colorful flowers and easy to maintain bushes that won’t get out of control.

New Windows

If you haven’t replaced your home’s windows in 8-10 years, buyers will notice quickly and even decrease their initial offer to compensate for the neglect. Choose to invest in new windows this spring, making your home more energy efficient and beautiful.

A Lovely Deck

Finally, don’t forget your backyard is a part of your home’s exterior space. Buyers are often looking for outdoor entertaining space, and a new deck looks appealing. Choose a deck built from durable materials that will last the new owners for years to come.
