Although Texas may not even be close to feeling like it yet, 🍂 Fall is just around the corner. Fall is the perfect time to get started on any home improvement projects you’ve been putting off all year. If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future, there are some improvements projects that should take priority because they will add 💰 value to your home. Here is a list of the top 5 Fall Home Improvement Projects that Add Value:
Paint or Install a New Front Door: Painting the front door is one of the easiest and quickest ways to add value. Not up to painting? Change the look by installing a new front 🚪 door. Doing so can increase energy-efficiency as well as increase home value.
Paint or Install a New Garage Door: Same concept as the front door, your garage door typically is the biggest portion of the front of your house. Install a new one or make it look new, and remember, you can spruce it up with some color-you don’t have to settle for boring white like the rest of your neighbors.
Freshen Up the Exterior of your Home: You see a pattern here, right? 🏡 Curb appeal is everything. If you don’t have it, what will entice a buyer to view your home? Power washing the exterior of your home can remove summer gunk and any mold growth, which can make a home look years older than it really is. After it’s clean, freshen up or repaint the exterior. You don’t want buyers turned off by color schemes that went out decades ago or peeling and chipping paint.
Spruce Up the Deck: A deck is only as good as it looks. Splintering wood or a fading paint job is a big turn off for prospective buyers. It might not keep them from making an 📝 offer, but they will use it to negotiate a cheaper selling price.
🕵️ Inspect the Roof: One of the concerns at the top of a buyer’s list is the condition of the roof. The best way to be ready for them is to have your roof in top-notch shape to put their mind at ease. Its main value comes from instilling confidence in a prospective buyer. Repair leaks and cosmetic damage, so buyers cannot use them to negotiate a lower price. Repairing or replacing a roof can add as much as 110% on your investment when it comes time to sell.
