5 Remodeling Projects to Tackle Before Selling, Green, Ohio

If you're preparing to sell your home, investing in remodeling now can pay off with better offers and a higher sales price down the road. In particular, you should focus on the basic features of the home and on projects that affect the curb appeal since these are both areas potential buyers will be looking at.

Remodeling Ideas When Selling a Home

1. Windows

If you haven't replaced your windows in the last few years, now is the time. Not only is this a chance to update their styles and ensure the frames look well maintained, but it can also increase the insulation of the home with the right window selections--an energy efficiency feature your buyers will appreciate.

2. Gutters

This is a simple, inexpensive way to make a big difference. A new gutter system will ensure your buyers that they'll be safe from water damage. You can even add gutter covers for a convenient, low-maintenance system, which could become a selling point.

3. Entry Door

RemodelingYour front door is a big part of a buyer’s first impression. Aside from aesthetic concerns, you don't want the door to stick or squeak. You might repaint it and perform any needed maintenance on the frame and hinges, or it may be simpler to replace it entirely.

4. Siding

The siding is the first characteristic buyers will see as they approach the home, so updating it can add to the house's initial curb appeal. If your siding is cracked, dented, or discolored, it may chase away buyers, so add fresh new panels if possible.

5. Roof

If your roof is sagging or missing shingles, it can make the home look poorly maintained, even if the interior is pristine. Have your roof repaired as needed, or if it's in very poor condition, consider a replacement with a more durable and attractive roofing material.
