As Middle Tennessee remains a top relocation destination in the United States, here’re some of the best home updates which will have a big impact when selling.
Best Home Updates When Selling – Exterior Updates
Curb appeal is something that will not only help sell your home, it makes you and your home feel great! Stand back from the house’s exterior and use a critical eye to take inventory. Begin with the mailbox, house numbers and anything at the driveway entry which might need replaced or updated.
Prune bushes, especially if obstructing views, and power wash sidewalk and home where needed. Here are some great curb appeal tips.
With the change of seasons, you’ll also want to update your window boxes or planters. Check out this great video on fall container gardens.
Updates For Home Interiors When Selling
In addition to editing personal items, going neutral can really help people visualize. If you do have a room with a bold color you’ve enjoyed, ultimately, you need to appeal to the largest amount of people possible so go light, bright and neutral. Check out a previous blog where we share some of our favorite light colors for 2022..
Light fixtures are one area of a home that can look really dated. Get rid of the flush mount fixtures and be sure to clean and replace any bulbs. You want your home to be seen in its best light, literally.
Floors are another important area when selling. You may have been putting off replacing stained carpets but now is definitely the time especially if you have furry family members. Replace any damaged or worn areas. You’ll be surprised the impact it will make. Also, be sure you don’t have any cracked or dated tile.
Don’t have the budget for updating cabinets? Consider changing dated hardware, update mirrors and any worn plumbing fixtures, a much more cost-effective change.
If you want to dig into the cost and the pay off, the National Association of Realtors shared these stats.
