How do you get the most value out of your home sale? It's never too early to start this conversation, whether you're selling in three months or three years.
There are certain things you can do when selling a home to ensure the highest value in return. When you're thinking about improving the value you get from your home, it's also never too early to start thinking about it.
About three months ago, in fact, I actually met with a homeowner that intends to sell their home three years from now. This house backs right up to a parkway with no buffer zone, so I recommended that they plant a buffer zone with some evergreen trees so that when they sell in three years, the home is more appealing.
You may not be three years ahead like these sellers, however, so what can you do right now?
The biggest bang for your buck you'll get from improvements is with paint and carpet. Almost 100% of the improvements we do to maximize profit for sellers involves painting the home or cleaning or replacing the carpet. Other areas where you can make upgrades include the kitchen, bathrooms, and curb appeal of the house. Every single home is different.
Again, it's never too early to start thinking about this conversation. I would be happy to put you in touch with painters, contractors, or any type of service workers you need from my preferred list. The best part of working with a professional like myself is that you can leverage my relationship with them knowing that they will treat you right since we send them a lot of business.
If you'd like some more info about how we can help you start talking about improving your home's value or you'd like a recommendation for a contractor, give me a call or send me an email. I'd be happy to help!
