4 Projects To Finish Before You List

4 Projects To Finish Before You List



Are you ready to make the transition to a new home? Or at least take a few steps to get there?

If so, you’ll need to think about selling your current property, and you’re probably hoping to get the best price possible.

Renovations can be a great value booster. The right changes appeal to Buyers, and help you make a wonderful return on your investment.

Here are four ways you might want to renovate before selling.


Fresh Paint Job

A new coat of paint is one of the most affordable renovations - and you can even do it yourself. Uplifting colours, like taupe or soft teal, can make a room look brighter. Remember that the more neutral the area, the easier it is for Buyers to picture themselves living there.

Countertops and Light Fixtures

If you want to make your home look new without undergoing a full remodel, updating the countertops and light fixtures can work wonders. Similar to paint colours, it’s best to stick with simple styles.

Break-Even Remodel

Did you know the kitchen and bathrooms are the most important parts of the house? To interest Buyers, consider a break-even remodel in these lived-in spaces. If the cabinets and floors are outdated, try low-cost upgrades (like new hardware) so the rooms look more modern.

Market Trends

Before deciding which renovations to make, check out the latest trends in home design. Choosing improvements based on what’s popular can help your house stand out to Buyers - both online and in person.
