Selling your home in today’s real estate market can be a tough job, let alone getting more money out of the endeavor. With the right home improvement projects and these simple tips, you can easily sell your home for more money. Do one or do them all and you’ll be sure to get a good return on your investment and sell your home for more money.

Curb Appeal Campaign

1. Front Door- One of the most important parts of getting prospective buyers into your home is to have great curb appeal. By dressing up your front door with fresh paint, new hardware or a window insert, you can really draw a crowd of buyers to your home.

2. Siding- Whether you have wood siding, vinyl siding or just plain stucco, keeping the outside of your home’s exterior looking fresh a clean is important to keeping curb appeal strong.

3. Roofing- Shingles, metal, tiles or shakes-no matter what your roofing materials are, if they are damaged or dirty, the value of your home goes down instantly. You don’t need to replace the entire roof; just fix any damages, make sure it’s clean and remove any debris from gutters and downspouts.

4. Garage Door- The garage door is like the other front door to your home. Any dents, bends or other damages to the garage door should be fixed. A fresh coat of paint can bring an old garage door back to life again for cheap.

5. Windows- Replacing old windows with new energy efficient windows doesn’t make financial sense, especially when the return on your investment is going right in the red. Opt out for covering older windows with exterior and interior shutters to make them more attractive and energy efficient at the same time.

6. Landscaping- Finish your curb appeal campaign by installing new landscaping around your home. A little sod or grass seed can go a long way in the front yard.

Interior Renovations

7. Paint- Painting is the cheapest and most common way to help get more money from the sale of your home. But over doing it can hint at damages and repairs that may lie beneath a fresh coat of paint. Also, stick to neutral tones that everyone loves, not just you.

8. Flooring- Nothing brings a home’s resale value down more than dingy outdated shag carpet or the like. Installing your own floating laminate flooring can make your home look so good, you may not want to move after all!

9. Kitchens- The first place a prospective home buyer looks for is an updated and clean kitchen. Replacing worn and dated countertops or cabinets can be a great way to get the most bang for your buck when doing interior renovations.

10. Bathrooms- Besides the kitchen, an old bathroom with yellowing grout, chipped tiles and mildew stains instantly turns buyers off. Replacing the grout, adding a fresh coat of paint or replacing any damaged or dated materials is the perfect way to help sell your home for more.
