Spending money to make an addition or upgrade to your home doesn’t mean it helps raise its overall value. Keep in mind that not every home improvement you make creates a positive impact. Some help and there are some that only costs you money. If you’re planning to sell your home, you need to be aware of the home improvements that add value to your home. Doing so will give you more value for your money. Convincing buyers will be easier as well because your house has all they need and more.
Here are home improvements to make before selling:
Paint job (The exterior and interior portions of your home)
Patch up any cracks or holes found in walls or ceiling before applying a fresh coat of paint. It ensures that the paint job makes your home look new and fresh from the inside out. A paint job done right will do wonders for your home selling efforts. A house that looks brand new will always generate a lot of interest and attract buyers to check and see what it has to offer. Additionally, when your real estate agent hires a video production company to record a video of your home, it will look much better on camera. Video production in San Diego is known for often asking potential sellers to paint their houses so as to capture a more vibrant house on tape.
Garden landscaping to boost curb appeal
The first thing that buyers will notice when they visit your house is the space leading up to your door. How your front yard looks will significantly influence their first impressions. Getting them into your home is the real challenge. Address this challenge through garden landscaping to boost curb appeal. If they don’t get past your front door, you may need to look for another buyer. Furthermore, a lush garden will be viewed more favorably on camera, as opposed to a grey dry garden.
A steel entry door
A steel entry door upgrade improves your home’s security features by leaps and bounds. It’s more durable than wooden doors and offers better insulation. A well-insulated house is more energy efficient because the HVAC system doesn’t need to work as hard to maintain the set temperature. This a more favorable approach!
A programmable thermostat
Do you regularly worry about leaving the HVAC on after you leave home as you head to the office? Eliminate this problem by purchasing a programmable thermostat. It doesn’t cost that much, but the benefits it provides will blow your mind away. It’s a valuable upgrade for your home even if you’re not selling. However, if you are selling, this might be a great selling point, especially because a programmable thermostat will register ultra-high-end on video, and exude a luxurious vibe.
Double glaze your windows
The windows in your home let the sunshine in and all other weather elements. The window will mainly affect how hard your HVAC system has to work to maintain the temperature. You can drastically cut your energy consumption when you upgrade and double glaze your windows because they provide better insulation. It’s also a worthy investment as it raises your home’s current value. Just what you need when you’re about to sell your home.
