What Home Improvements Can Bring Me the Most Profit?

Transform your home with these simple upgrades for maximum profit.

How do I get the most bang for my buck when it comes to home improvements? While May is typically peak selling season, we have not been in a normal market since COVID. That’s why I suggest getting your home on the market as soon as possible to capitalize on the low housing inventory.

When selling, think of yourself as a buyer. Since 92% of people begin searching for homes online, creating that first impression is important. But what are people actually looking for when looking for a home? Here are three home improvement tips that will give you the greatest return:

1. Boosting curb appeal. A buyer’s first look at the exterior of your home sets the tone for the buyer's perception. To improve your home’s first impression by having good landscaping, maintain a clean and manicured look with fresh mulch, trimmed hedges, and pruned trees.

2. Pressure wash your exterior. Pressure washing, when done right and by a professional, can make your house look freshly painted. But do not stop with the house and do the whole exterior, including the driveway and sidewalks, but especially your front door. Your front door should look clean and inviting. If the front door is not freestyle stained, stain it or paint it a dark color like navy blue, charcoal gray, black, or white, which are good color choices and would look good online. Also consider replacing your front door if needed.

3. Hire a professional stager. Hiring a professional stager can help make your home look neutral and inviting. You can even give them a to-do list of the things that you want them to improve in your house. Open floor plans are sought-after, so consider furniture placement that maximizes this feeling. Most of all, they can also help you declutter and remove personal belongings to clear up some space.

4. Save on remodeling. Before spending tons of money on a kitchen remodel, consult a real estate professional. They may suggest cheaper upgrades like doing a paint job, adding fresh bed sheets, and making the house look brighter by swapping dark curtains with white ones, or making the room appear brighter with the help of opening your windows and turning on bright lights.
