Today, we'll talk about  The Top 4  Best Upgrades That Add The Most Value To Your Home

There are so many things you can do to add or drop the value to your house. 

Do you know exactly which home upgrades add the most value and ROI when selling your house? 

If you are looking for ideas and inspiration, you are definitely on the right place.

On this post, I will cover about the best 4 possible updating options. 

People often ask me, "What brings the best ROI when it comes to selling a house?"( ROI - return on investment)  

and this is my reply...

Let's get started, 

1. Updating the Kitchen

The heart of every house is the kitchen. Any appearances of discomfort found by buyers will cost you thousands of dollars.

Your number one priority in preparing a house to sell should be to make the kitchen shine and if you can afford it and needs it.... change to new appliances, change old counters, cabinets, door cabinets and

install a new splash wall before selling. The money you invest in modernizing your kitchen, will be returned handsomely at the closing table.

2. Get that Bathroom Upgraded

A bathroom remodel doesn't necessarily mean that you need to put a lot of money on it. 

A few dollars spent in repairing where is needed, fixing and replacing fixture if necessary and staging your bathroom will go a long way.

Remember, buyers  are looking for change in their lifestyle...give it to them with a few scented candles, colored soaps, body lotions and fresh soft towels.

The bathroom has to sparkle!

3. Replace Old Carpet

Old carpet is a big turnoff to home buyers as it shows dirty, stained and has a smell that won't go away. 

Remember, your carpet is like the floor mats in your car –

If you are selling your car and while cleaning it, you observe the floor mats are all worn and dirty. You replace them and instantly change

the look of the interior to help you possibly get more money for your car. T

The same concept applies to your house. Pretend the carpet in your house's carpet are the floor mats of your car before selling it.... If worn, discolored, dirty and looks all used up...change it! - 

If they are still in good shape, have them professionally cleaned.

4. Paint the Walls in a Neutral Tone

Painting rooms and exterior areas where they are needed is always a good investment of time and money.

Paint over scuffs and wall imperfections –

A potential buyer sees your house as a blank canvas for them to paint a new life on....make sure you give them that white canvas and not

divert their attention to little areas that you left with one stroke of a paint brush...just because your color did not match!

Take a sample of the paint (a paint chip would do) to Home Depot, and let them  mix the exact color paint for you.

I don't recommend strong colors, stick to neutral lighter shades of brown and white.

Remember, a house is a product and after selecting the right price, the preparation is very important to have a successful sale. 

If your house as a product is appealing to buyers, it has a much greater chance of selling sooner and for the most money.

Our commitment as your real estate professional is to help you find your dream home at the right timing for you.
