3 Exterior Upgrades To Increase Your Home’s Resale Value
If you’re looking to resell your home, odds are you’re investing in some renovations. That also means you need to think wisely about what you invest and how to get that investment back. You also want to think about if you wanted to buy a home, what would you love it to have right when you move in? This doesn’t mean you have to fix up and change every room in the house, but some projects will help your home sell much faster and for more money. Here are some of the best exterior upgrades you can fix-up when prepping your home to get sold.
Spruce Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal to Boost Resale Value
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but most people will judge a house by the exterior. Focusing on the outside of your home will bring more visitors and a faster sell. Most people know that they’re going to change up the interior of a home and have that in mind right away. But you shouldn’t forget about the exterior. Below, we’ve included three of the most noticeable and beneficial upgrades you can do for your home’s exterior.
Replace Your Old Windows With Newer, Eco-Friendly Options
Changing out your windows to energy-efficient windows with either triple-pane insulating glass or Low-E insulating glass can dramatically improve your home’s overall look. Think of windows as the eyes of your home; they’re the first thing most people notice. In many cases, however, windows don’t tend to see an upgrade since the house was first built or bought. Properly insulated windows will decrease energy bills in our hot summers and cold winters by allowing air-conditioned air to remain within the home. New windows can add lustrous beauty to any old home.
Add a Touch of Life with Landscaping
Getting some color in front of your home will also help. Even simple, low-maintenance landscaping can make all the difference. Find a couple of low-maintenance plants or trees that are great for your region. It might be best to err on the side of simplicity as going overboard with the landscaping could cause some people to stray away. Taking care of too many plants can be a commitment new buyers may not be too interested in taking on. They’ll also have to think about that water bill, as well. You can look online for desert landscaping ideas that will draw new buyers with the vibrancy of life.
Refresh Your Home’s Exterior Upgrades with a New Coat of Paint
Giving your home a new coat of paint while those windows and landscaping get upgraded always does wonders. Painting is one of the most cost-effective ways to boost the attention your home will get. It might feel like a big project, but the pay-off, in the end, will make it worth it. Consider the color of your home’s roofing shingles and think about which colors may match or stand out. You don’t want to choose colors that are too jarring or overbearing, as potential buyers may feel like the house has too much personality to make it their own. Again, it’s always best to keep it simple. Colors like off-white, light blue, yellow, or green are great options as they mesh beautifully with El Paso’s desert environment.
