Improving your Troon home can greatly increase its value when it comes time to sell, but it is possible to overdo it. With the rise in popularity of home improvement shows, Pinterest and DIY projects, a buyer may be more willing to put the money and time in to make a home their own than to pay top dollar for a property that’s not quite what they want.
Instead of risking a pricey investment, you may want to consider more cost-efficient alternatives to remodeling. Here are 5 ways to forego remodeling and still make your home sparkle:
1. Repaint in neutral tones. You’ll appeal to far more buyers than if your home features a whole rainbow of flashy colors. Repainting is a simple and cheap way to add some sophistication to an older home.
2. Clean it up. A clean home is essential and can sometimes be the difference between selling your home and not. Tidy up, but also make sure the windows, baseboards, and carpets look like new.
3. Add plants near the front door. Add some curb appeal to your home! Placing a few potted plants near the entrance will do just that, and it won’t hurt your wallet.
4. Refinish the cabinets. Many sellers will opt to have new cabinetry installed to class up their kitchen. However, staining or refinishing your cabinets instead can do the trick at a fraction of the cost.
