Thinking about selling your home? Are you looking for your next home improvement project? If the answer is yes, you will definitely want to keep reading. We have compiled a list of the top five home improvements you can make to your space. Any or all of these projects will help add value and make your home Realtor-ready!

Refresh Your Walls with Color

Embrace your inner artist and paint your walls. Discover alluring neutrals that best compliment your room and give it that blank canvas appeal for potential buyers. Painting your walls will bring in new light and a refreshing quality to any room.

New Floors, Big Returns

Hardwood floors are incredibly appealing due to their natural richness and sustainability. Don’t be afraid to ask your Realtor for their opinion about replacing your existing carpet, tile or hardwood. They can tell you which styles of flooring are “triggers” for buyers in your neighborhood. A Realtor or flooring professional can recommend less expensive flooring styles that will look fabulous in your home and appeal to buyers, without costing you a fortune.

Warm Up the Basement

What’s on almost every home buyer’s wish list? A properly finished basement. This space creates an endless list of possibilities for a buyer. Easy ways to warm up your basement include; increasing the lighting as needed, adding a fresh coat of paint, touching up the doors and trim and adding cool prints to the walls. Make sure you eliminate musty smells or obvious signs of rust or water. Also, install some new, neutral carpeting for warmth and comfort. Having a soft surface underfoot will truly make the space feel intimate and inviting.

Add Glamour to the Kitchen

Give your kitchen a low cost makeover. Buyers will focus on the kitchen as much as, or more, than any room in the house. Instead of repainting the entire kitchen, choose one wall to highlight in a bold new color. Make sure you remove any unnecessary clutter, pans, jars, magnets or loose articles from your refrigerator and countertops. If your kitchen floor is in good shape, invest in a thorough cleaning. Consider incorporating tile or stone backsplashes into the kitchen to accent the countertops and add visual dimension to the space. Keep appliances, sinks and faucets spotless and shiny. If your kitchen flooring looks faded or tired, a good economical alternative is resilient flooring. Resilient flooring comes in realistic looking wood planks and stone-like tiles. Buyers will appreciate the new, modern look of the kitchen and love that it doesn’t take a lot of effort keep clean.

Light it Up

LIGHTS, SALES SIGN, ACTION! Make your home come to life like a Hollywood movie set. Add extra light fixtures to put your rooms into the spotlight. A light in the entry way or highlighting your fireplace can increase appeal and create the illusion of a larger space.

Make your house sparkle in the eyes of the potential buyer. Choose one or all of these home improvements and watch your space go from lovely to extraordinary.
