Thinking about selling your home this spring?
Here are some quick home improvement projects to start thinking about that will help your home sell faster and possibly for more. These improvements will make your home look more attractive, more cared for, and more attractive financially to potential buyers.
Upgrading to Energy Efficient Windows
Older homes are usually in need of a window replacement before sale for two reasons. One, the visual appearance of older windows can be a sales deterrent. Two, most potential buyers don’t want to have to deal with drafty old windows that are going to cost them money on having to replace them and also in increased utility bills after the sale.
By upgrading to energy-efficient windows before you put your home up for sale, the new windows will improve the look of the outside of your home, so people are interested in looking on the inside. You can also use the fact that you just replaced the windows so they won’t have to worry about having to do the same for quite a long time down the road.
Another positive selling point that you will be able to use is that you replaced the old windows with new energy-efficient windows, so they will have lower energy bills.
Upgrading Exterior Doors
Just like with the windows, outside doors affect the visual appearance of a home, and they can be the source of increased heating and cooling bills. So if your outside doors look pretty bad or have a bad draft, don’t just repair them before you put your home up for sale, replace them.
Upgrading to New Screen Doors
Screen doors aren’t exactly high on the list of things to check when potential buyers are looking for a new home. However, new screen doors can be used as a selling point. Because most buyers are going to want to be able to open their doors to let fresh air in, having the presence of a new screen door pointed out will remind them of this and will also bring to light the fact that they won’t have to pay to have a new screen door put in.
Also, if you have an older screen door that is in bad shape, it is essential to replace it with a new one to make the house look better.
