home for sale If you are looking to sell your home and would like to increase your home’s resale value, it sometimes helps to do a few simple renovations. Sometimes the biggest difference in a home’s selling price is just a matter of a simple upgrade.

Add Some Flowers

Adding flowers or plants to the exterior of the home can make a home seem more appealing before a buyer even exits their car. It is possibly the most inexpensive way to renovate your home. You do not even have to plant a bush; if you prefer, you can have a plant that is free-standing in a terracotta pot by the side of the door.

Paint Your Home

Possibly the most inexpensive way to renovate your home for sale, is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Sometimes fresh paint can really change the interior or exterior of a home, and it gives you an opportunity to repair any small damage to interior walls. If you are going to repaint an interior room, make sure to use neutral colors, as it can offer a wider variety for home decor and won’t be distracting to the buyers.

Upgrade the Kitchen

The kitchen is often considered the heart of a home. Consider modernizing a kitchen to have more of an open-floor plan, as that is significantly more popular today with buyers. By making a kitchen more open and inviting, and possibly investing in upgrading sink hardware, you can increase the resale value of your home.

Hardwood Flooring

Adding hardwood flooring to your home can instantly update it and make it seem like a more elegant home. Real hardwood flooring in a lighter oak or maple is a significant selling point for many modern buyers. Avoid darker wood, as that can seem a bit dated.

Consider Adding Exterior Siding

The exterior siding of a home might not be a glamorous topic, but it does show that a home has been well-cared for and in today’s more green-conscious society, adding energy efficiency to a home can really increase its value on the market.  An attractive home exterior also offers curb appeal, making the home more attractive to buyers who are viewing the home from the street or the sidewalk.
