A: Upgrades the Buyer Can See!

Have a list of long-ignored home improvement items? Completing those before listing your property can save you stress, money, and more work in the long run. While not every project will see a 100% return on investment (or ROI) , updating and freshening up the interior and exterior of your home will increase the chances of it selling quickly and for asking price.

Kitchen Refresh

On average, one of the best ROI for home improvements is a kitchen refresh. Notice we said refresh NOT renovation.

Full renovations often have a lower ROI versus a refresh which is basically a “glow-up” that mainly deals with the aesthetics of the kitchen such as painting existing cabinet doors, the walls, or installing new sink fixtures. Kitchens are a focal point for a residential listing, small cosmetic updates can have BIG returns!

Bathroom Refresh

If a bathroom looks dated and worn, this is an eyesore to potential Buyers. A quick bathroom refresh is an easy fix to this problem! Fresh paint, updated lighting, a new vanity or bathroom hardware are just a few examples of ways to update this small but oh-so-important space in your home.

Curb Appeal Boost with Fresh Landscaping

First impressions matter and that is why any money spent on landscaping can often get a dollar for dollar return! A Buyer’s first impression of your house can make or break a sale. Fresh landscaping could mean weeding, trimming, planting perennials or adding a new layer of mulch on existing beds.

HVAC Electrification

Changing a traditional gas or oil furnace to an electric heat pump or replacing your multi-gallon hot water heater over to a tankless version has an over 100% ROI! Not glamorous but definitely worth it.

Replace Carpeting with Hardwood Floor or Luxury Vinyl Plank

Dirty, damaged, stained carpet is a potential turn off to prospective Buyers. Replacing carpet before listing is an obvious fix, however considering the current trends in interior design is worth a thought. Here at Leonetti Group we can say from experience most Buyers prefer hardwood over carpet!

Another less expensive option for fresh flooring would be LVP or Luxury Vinyl Plank. LVP can provide the look of hardwood but with less maintenance and less costs to install.

Garage Door Replacement

Replacing your garage door boosts curb appeal, and as we mentioned first impressions matter. Don’t underestimate the value of replacing your old garage doors!
