But in an attempt to alleviate some of that stress, we’ve compiled a list of wise home improvements to make before selling.
After a swift sale? These wise home improvements will certainly set you up for success there.
What are some wise home improvements to make before selling?
You’re moving. So, renovating your current home may not be on your radar. We get it. But opting to infuse just a little cash into your current house can help your home sell faster. It’s important to boost its appeal to buyers. And the following home improvements can and will do just that.
Fresh paint in & out
Don’t underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint. You’d be surprised how much this simple task can improve the presentation of your home. Understandably, many argue that the buyer will want to do what they want with the paint. And that might very well be true. But slapping on a good, fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive yet powerfully effective way to boost your home’s appeal.
Boost your curb appeal
Curb appeal, in case you’re unfamiliar, is the attractiveness of the exterior of your home from the street. Basically, you want to fix up the exterior to make the home as appealing as you can. This includes things like landscaping, painting, fixing up the front entrance and maybe even a new front door.
No matter how big or small the bathroom, a bathroom remodel is always a wise home improvement choice. Bathrooms and kitchens are often said to be the wisest spend of your dollar when it comes to a renovation.

Increase energy efficiency
While often overlooked, many buyers these days are seeking out energy efficiency. This is a great way to boost appeal without breaking the bank.
Update the floors
Outdated, grungy carpets and dingy floors are tough for a buyer to look past. But infusing a bit of cash into this area of your home will definitely up the interest. If updating the floors simply isn’t in the budget (we get it), opt for a deep, deep cleaning.
