First Impressions Affect the Price
The first thing buyers see isn’t your staged living room or upgraded kitchen — it's the price. If buyers think the price is fair, they'll go inside for a better look. If not, they'll skip over your home.
There are plenty of ways to add value to your home. But don’t waste your time and money with major home improvements that won’t pay off. Instead, focus on these small, often overlooked tasks. Even the smallest fixes can make a big difference in your home's value.
Replace Doorknobs and Other Hardware
Is the front doorknob worn or tarnished? Are your light fixtures outdated? Replace them. Even though it’s just a cosmetic fix, changing the hardware can make a world of difference in a buyer's eyes.
Paint the Walls a Neutral Color
A fresh coat of paint can make your home look like new. When you're picking colors, go neutral. Beige, grey, and other neutral colors appeal to all tastes, which means potential buyers can easily picture themselves living in your home. Lighter tones also create the illusion of more space.
Declutter Your Home
Buyers want to see a home that is organized and well-kept, both in person at showings and online in listing photos. Donate, discard, or store any furniture or household items that are not absolutely necessary in each room. Decluttering your home is the best way to add value, maximize space, and make a great first impression.
