In today’s housing market, buyers are searching for turn-key properties that don’t require extra time or cash to renovate. The current health climate has made it challenging to complete big home improvement projects — but here's a list of smaller upgrades costing $20,000 or less that will bring in offers and increase your home’s sale price.
1. Deep Cleaning
True, you can clean the house yourself. However, there’s absolutely nothing like a professional deep cleaning to wash away years of scuffs, shower scum, cobwebs, and more to make your home sparkle — and increase its value by thousands.
2. Entry Door Replacement
Has your front door been, shall we say, well loved? Then it’s time for an upgrade. New hardware, paint, and updated accessories will greatly improve your home’s curb appeal.
3. New Interior Paint
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the inside of your home. Research what color palettes are popular in your area (neutral tends to be the best) and give your walls some love.
One of the first things a buyer sees when they view your house is the front yard — and first impressions are hard to shake. Make sure your home makes a good one by investing in some professional landscaping to tidy up the lawn, plant some flowers, and trim those hedges.
5. Minor Bathroom Remodel
Bathrooms can make or break a deal. If yours are a bit outdated, minor upgrades like new light fixtures, faucets, countertops, and cabinets will make all the difference.
