4 Home Updates to Boost Resale Value

Did you know that according to real estate experts and various studies, the best time to sell a home is late spring?

If you’re looking to put your home on the market, here are some home updates that may boost your selling price!

1.Kitchen Renovations

For many years, kitchen renovation projects have served as a cornerstone of residential real estate improvement efforts. While kitchen designs and trends may change over time, having updated appliances, proper lighting, smart storage and enough counter space can always entice a buyer.

2. Bathroom Upgrades

Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint or a full bathroom reno, a nice looking bathroom can do wonders for your home. It’s also important to consider updating a bathroom to be user-friendly for all ages — a separate walk-in shower can help those in wheelchairs or elderly home buyers, for example.

3. Landscaping Improvements

Do your grounds appear eye-catching? Creating a park-like landscape can cause a serious boost in curb appeal. In-ground solar-powered lighting for walkways, trimmed shrubs, and a newly painted door can be quick improvements that really pack a punch.

4. Roof And Gutter Renovations

Repairing your roof and gutter system not only adds to the beauty of a home but the functionality as well. Installing attractive exterior siding in conjunction with new roofs and gutters can also add to your home’s curb appeal and resale value.

Spring Chores to Do Now

When you say “spring chores,” it’s likely that you think about all of the tasks you need to do inside your home. However, the exterior of your home needs a little TLC, too!

These following three tasks count as some of the most important ones you can do to maintain your home and it’s value. They’re practical and add to your home’s curbside appeal to boot!

1. Fix the Roof

Did your roof spring a leak over the winter? Did some shingles come undone? Is your roof, in general, starting to look a bit saggy? Then, once the spring thaw hits, it’s time to fix the roof!

As USA Today points out, leaks and other roof problems lead to even bigger problems (like mold or pests) and if left unchecked, will destroy your home and knock down its value.

2. Clean the Gutters

Each season, your gutters can easily collect twigs, leaves, and other debris, which can lead to drainage issues when it rains. If water has nowhere to go, it will fall down the side of your home. Any leftover or standing water can cause some serious mold and pest problems as well!

3. Take Care of the Siding

The siding on your home can take a serious beating during the winter months. From salt and sand to mud and other organic matter, you’ll want to get rid of the gunk. Depending on your siding, a hose or power washer can help tidy things up!
