Replace the garage door.

Replacing the garage door not only contributes to fantastic curb appeal, but the functionality will grab the attention of potential buyers when you upgrade to a more modern door with windows and smart control features.  

Install a kitchen backsplash.

Kitchen remodels make a huge impact on the resale value of a home. Doing small weekend projects such as replacing or adding a backsplash can do absolute wonders and make a dramatic difference in your kitchen design! Make it as easy as laying tile one day and grouting the other for a quick home improvement.  

Update the popcorn ceilings. 

Yes, it is time to update those outdated popcorn ceilings. It is a fairly simple process you can do on your own with a few products from the supply store. This is such an easy and affordable way to spruce up your home with minimal cost and effort.   

Re-roof your house. 

The exterior of your home is the first thing a buyer will notice. Make the best first impression by addressing your current roof. You do not always have to completely re-roof your home and we understand this is more costly. There are options to replace shingles, partially replace or complete a roof over. If you think your current roof will be a topic of discussion when listing your home, add this tip to the top of the list!

Address the hardware and fixtures.

What seems like a small, nitpicky detail can make the biggest impression on your buyers. Contemporize your outdated hardware and light fixtures to give a more stylish and fresh appearance. If you need to save money, try painting your hardware instead of purchasing new.  

Stay neutral.

Finally, when making home improvements – remember to stay neutral. Whether you change the color of your siding, cabinets, or walls, you can appeal to a larger number of buyers by keeping simplicity throughout. Neutral tones make it easier for potential buyers to envision what they could do with the space and make it easy for them to paint over if need be.
