Switch to Energy Efficient Windows
Old homes rarely have nice looking windows. Putting in energy-efficient, replacement windows will immediately improve the value of the home and chances of resale in two ways. One, new windows instantly improve the look of the home. A good looking home has a better chance to sell.
Two, energy-efficient windows add additional value to a home because of the savings the home owner will see on their monthly energy bill.
Just like with the windows, a home with a damaged or chipped exterior door is less appealing. If your exterior doors are in decent shape, they are probably plain and can be improved upon.
Take out the doors that the home was purchased with and put in better doors. This could mean installing energy-efficient doors, doors that have artistic work on them, or ones with decorative glass panes.
Add New Screen Doors
A lot of people don’t think about screen doors until they want to open their exterior doors and let some fresh air in. It’s one of those things that you don’t miss until you want to use it and it’s not there.
Now, adding a screen door to any of the exterior doors will not increase the value of the home much, if any at all. However, screen doors will be seen as a perk by some potential buyers that walk through the home and can be pointed out by your real estate agent as one of the many brand new features of the home.
While most of the ideas above are more to improve upon the look of the home, sometimes that’s all that’s needed to make a profitable sale of your home.
