Many updates not only add value to your property, they also make your home more desirable. Some items we typically recommend are below:
Declutter and deep clean– This isn’t a costly investment, but it
requires time. Ultimately, it will help make your home more appealing to buyers.
Create curb appeal – You have only one chance to make a first impression! Clean up the yard. Plant flowers. Ensure the entryway looks nice. Make your property shine.
Add a fresh coat of paint– Painting is one of the least expensive ways to add value to your home. A crisp, clean property appeals to the buyer and makes a huge difference. Neutral colors are best, they allow potential buyers to be able to picture their own furniture and decorations in the home.
Replace the carpets– If your carpet is worn out, consider the fairly small investment to replace it entirely and gives the home a new fresh look. Speak to your listing specialist before making any purchases; we can tell you what is popular with buyers in the Wilmington area.
Kitchen upgrades– New granite countertops can make a world of a difference, and our team can recommend an inexpensive product that is popular with buyers in our area.
Buyers should fall in love with your home. Buying a home is an emotional experience.
Please speak with one of our listing specialists before investing any money in upgrades, not all homes require upgrades in our market. Decluttering, deep cleaning and creating curb appeal are items we always recommend, but in some case painting, replacing floors and other upgrades aren’t needed.
