Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and if you have been, then you might be on the market for a new home), you know that the housing market is hot right now. Homes are selling for thousands more than they were only a few years ago. So, if you’ve been thinking about selling your home, now is the perfect time to put it on the market.

There are a number of factors that determine the value of your home, including its size, age, and location. In addition to these key factors, upgrades and renovations also play into your home’s value. Home upgrades, even small ones, can go a long way towards helping to sell your home, not to mention they will boost your home’s resale value.

A New Roof Adds Huge Value. 

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home; it protects your home’s exterior and interior from the elements and keeps all of your loved ones safe and sound. Your roof is also a huge selling point when you put your house on the market. 

If your roof is nearing the end of its life and you’re thinking about selling your home, it’s a good idea to go ahead and have your roof replaced before you put your home on the market. Or, if your roof is newer, but it has some missing or loose shingles, or some other forms of damage, then you definitely need to have it repaired before trying to sell your home. 

Minor Home Improvements Can Go a Long Way.

If you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck, there are a number of minor home improvements that will make a big difference for your home. For instance, repainting your home’s trim can make it look fresh and new, without having to repaint the entire home’s exterior.

Nailing loose deck boards and applying a new coat of wood stain can make a tired old deck look as good as new, and not for a lot of money. These are all home improvement services that we can help you with as you prepare your home for the real estate market.

Bathrooms and Kitchens are a Major Selling Point.

If you only have a select budget for home improvements, then there are a few places in your home, aside from your roof, that are major selling points when people are thinking about buying your home: your home’s bathrooms and kitchen.

Painting or staining your cabinets and applying new cabinet hardware is one easy way to update these areas of your home without having to spend too much money. New tile flooring in these areas can also make a big difference in these rooms’ appearance.
