Upgrades To Make BEFORE Selling Your Home

Selling your home is incredibly rewarding, but it's important to take the necessary steps first! Making some upgrades and any necessary repairs before listing your home in Colorado Springs can help you sell your home more quickly and for a greater price. Before you sell, here are a few key upgrades that can make a huge difference!

Did you know that remodeled bathrooms yield the greatest return on investment out of any home remodel project? While you certainly can remodel the entire bathroom, you don't have to go to such great lengths to still reap some of the benefits. Replacing the tile or upgrading the faucets and/or shower heads can go a long way.

Entire kitchen remodels generally do not yield as high of a return on investment as you might think, but there are still certain upgrades you can do that will help you to sell your home more quickly. Appliances are a big one - if you have an outdated dishwasher, microwave, oven, or refrigerator, exchanging these for newer versions before you sell your home in Colorado Springs may be a good idea.

If you haven't put a lot of energy into your landscaping efforts in the past, doing so before you sell may be a good move. Planting fresh flowers, adding an attractive path to your front door, and repainting or re-staining your front porch will boost your curb appeal significantly and may even boost your home's value a little bit.

Before you sell your home, it's important to take a critical look at your flooring situation and consider making any necessary repairs or upgrades. Hardwood floors are an incredibly attractive asset to buyers, but not if they're scratched or in poor condition. Refinish any hardwood floors you have, and consider replacing other flooring if it is worn out or in poor condition. Replacing cracked floor tires is especially important - you may know that the crack occurred when you dropped something heavy there, but a potential buyer may assume it is a sign of a bigger problem.

After a few years, even the best paint jobs start to look worn or tired. Smudges may have appeared, home projects may have left undesirable marks on the walls, and redecorating efforts may have left multiple nail holes. Before you sell your Colorado Springs home, be sure to repaint your walls, doors, ceiling, and trim to create a fresh, inviting look.

Good Luck!
