What can you do around the house to prepare your home for an upcoming sale?
If you’re like many Americans, you’re probably getting (too) used to spending time around the house. Well, if you’re planning to sell your home, this might be a good time to take advantage and prep your house for the market. Here are four simple home improvements that will bring a great return on your investment when you sell:
1. Decluttering. Go through the sundry items you have lying around: If you haven’t used something in a long time and don’t plan to soon, get rid of it by donating it or tossing it out. This will help simplify your upcoming move on top of increasing your return on investment.
2. Painting. If you have peeling paint on the exterior of your home, scuff marks on the interior walls, or visible nail holes, take advantage of the time you have at home to do some quick touch-ups.
3. Gardening and landscaping. Not only would it be good for you to get outside for some vitamin D, but sprucing up your landscaping would also help make your home look better and give you a higher return on investment.
4. Deep cleaning. Clean those baseboards and other often-neglected spaces like those underneath the refrigerator, furniture, and cabinetry.
