Are you thinking about selling your house this summer? If so, make sure you read this blog post all the way through to discover 4 home improvements to make before selling this summer so you can increase the likelihood that you can sell…
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 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.
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 too.
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, weed the path, wash the windows, replace the missing downspout. These might seem like small actions but they can have a bit effect.
Next, think about landscaping. You don’t have to be extravagant but put in some time to make your home’s exterior look really good.
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.
If you’ve owned your home for a while, the paint trim 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 to encourage buyers to take a second look at your home.
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!
The summer is a pretty good time to sell a house but you can still help to speed up the process a bit by making these 4 home improvements to make before selling this summer. You’ll be glad you did!
