Winter Home Improvements to Help Sell Your House
During the winter we all spend more time inside our homes. If you are planning to sell your home in the new year (or even if you’re not) you can put some of the time you are spending inside to some home improvement projects that can help sell your home!
A new programmable thermostat can start saving you money as soon as you install it. Not only will this be a feature that looks good to potential home buyers it will also save you the hassle of remembering to adjust your thermostat.
The winter can also be a good time to take on that painting project that you have been meaning to do. If you are planning on selling your home be sure to do some research on which paint colors sell better than others. If you are painting yourself, the only cost to you will be the supplies and your time, but it will pay off in the end!
Are your carpets showing their age? People have a tendency to get new carpet and flooring in the winter. If you want to do the work yourself you can find tutorials about pulling up and installing carpet at most hardware stores. Shop around for the materials, there are deals out there all the time. A good looking floor can make a big difference to home buyers.
Look at your kitchen and bathrooms. These two rooms mean the most to home buyers. Take the time to look at your home with a critical eye. There are smaller projects that can make a big impact in your kitchen and bathroom. Refinishing your cabinets and updating the hardware will make your kitchen or bathroom look much better. Tutorials are available for these projects online and in hardware stores.
