I get asked all the time, what are the best home improvements to make that get the best return on their money? The answer will vary from home to home, but these improvements I'm about to share can be low cost, which will make the returns that much better.
1. The Bathroom - This is the one thing on every buyers list. A nice bathroom. You don't have to do a full remodel, but change the small things that make a huge impact. Paint or stain the vanity. Update the lighting fixture. Resurface the shower and sink. One of the smaller things are the knobs on the vanity and the towel holders. Get some new modern pieces which are inexpensive, but create a huge visual impact.
2. Neutral Paint - Throw a fresh coat of paint on the walls, just make sure they're neutral and appeal to the masses. This will give your house a bright new look and will work well with number 3!
3. New lighting - Update the lighting fixtures and while you're at it, buy nice bright light bulbs. When people walk into a bright room, it gives the feeling of more space. Makes the room feel bigger. An inexpensive fix I always suggest are to install recessed lighting. Every buyer I have worked with this year always pointed those out.
4. Curb Appeal - This is huge! One thing that we learn about presenting yourself is to make a good first impression. Well, same goes with your home. Make a good first impression! Update your landscaping. You don't have to do a full gut and redesign. All it takes is a clean up, new plants, and some new mulch. VUALA!
