Have you considered selling your house this summer to take advantage of the current market? If so, make sure you read this entire blog post to discover the top 4 home improvements to make before selling this summer in Fort Worth so you can increase the likelihood that you will sell your house fast…
When is the best time to sell? Some would argue that the spring is the best time and the summer is a bit more challenging, with families going away on vacation.
But just because the summer isn’t always the best time to sell doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Here are the top 4 home improvements to make before selling this summer to increase the likelihood that you’ll sell faster and closer to the price you want to sell for.
Home Improvement #1. Clean The Exterior
When potential buyers are looking for a home, they want one that will be easy and carefree to look after, and one that they can move into with the confidence that the previous homeowner took care of the home.
One way to indicate that is by giving plenty of extra attention to the exterior of your home by cleaning it up.
Power wash the walls, front porch and sidewalk, weed the sidewalk and driveway and maybe even spray with Roundup if needed, wash the windows inside and out, clean out the gutters and replace the missing downspout. These might seem like small actions but they can have a bit effect.
Home Improvement #2. Curb Appeal & Landscaping
Next, think about your curb appeal & landscaping. You don’t have to be extravagant but put in some time to make your home’s exterior look really nice and cared for.
Turn the soil in the garden and plant flowers, put mulch around each tree, apply a weed killer and fertilizer to encourage grass growth.
Maybe plant a bush or two. Again, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a big impact. The goal is to get them excited about the home from the outside and want to see the inside.
Home Improvement #3. Paint The Exterior
If you’ve owned your home for a while, the trim boards may be rotten and need replacing and trim paint on the doors and windows can fade or chip. A new paint job, which can be quickly applied on a weekend, will have a tremendous upgrading effect and encourage buyers to take a second look at your home.
Home Improvement #4. Add A Deck
This last home improvement might seem like a lot but you can add a smaller deck fairly affordably to your backyard, and it will just make your backyard seem so much more inviting and ready for family barbecues.
Some homeowners might balk at the expense but if it’s the difference between selling now versus selling later, it just might be worth it!
