Easy DIY Home Improvement Projects for Selling Your Home

Home improvement projects for selling your home can make a huge difference in offering a better curb appeal for your home. While fancy upgrades are always going to be appreciated, simple attention to detail can make your home stand out to interested buyers.
When it’s time to spruce up your home to sell, here are a few DIY home improvement projects for selling your home!

Landscaping Sustainability

Keeping up with your yard work may feel like a hassle, but a beautiful yard can definitely heighten the curb appeal of your home since it’s one of the very first things that people will see. When you’re making landscape decisions, choose plants, such as cacti, or a stone garden that are low maintenance but still look nice.

Power Wash Your Home’s Exterior

Cleaning the exterior of your home with a power wash can make your home look fresh again. After you wash the outside of your home, clean the driveway, patio, and sidewalk too. The intensity of a power wash removes stubborn dirt that you may not have even been aware of.

Purchase a new Front Door Mat

First impressions should never be overlooked. A fresh front doormat is one of the first things that buyers will see as they step into the house, already weighing in their minds whether this house would be a good fit for them.

Repaint the Interior

A fresh coat of paint does wonders for making your home look fresh and inviting. Neutral colors tend to be the best option for repainting because it allows potential buyers a clean canvas to imagine their new lives in your home. New paint will clean up any space for little cost.

Think Lighting

Good lighting can make any space seem bigger and more wonderful. Take advantage of your windows by cleaning them and replacing curtains. Scrutinize the lighting around your home and consider updating lighting fixtures to better accent the qualities of your home.

Accent Wood Floors

In many old homes, wood floors are hidden underneath old carpeting. While many buyers still appreciate carpeting, wood floors are becoming vogue again. Removing carpeting and refinishing wood is a big project, but it’s fairly simple if you have the right tools.

Upgrade Kitchen Appliances

While this can be a costly update, a modern kitchen will be a huge selling factor. Stainless steel is one of the most sought-after and popular looks for buyers. Replacing your dishwasher, microwave, and stove can increase your home value.

Check Your Electrical System

Are light switches and outlets connected in a way that is intuitive? To pass a home inspection, you need to have a home electrical system that is in good working order. Test all of your appliances and lights to make sure that all are working.

Refresh Your Bathroom

Another way to add extra value to your home is to update your bathroom. This could mean replacing cabinet knobs, fixing leaky faucets, upgrading the showerhead, regrouting the shower stall, installing a new floor, or repainting. These simple changes will make your bathroom more appealing to potential buyers.

Stay on Top of Clutter and Cleaning

Clear away clutter, whether you put unneeded items in storage or find a place within your home to hide the extra. But remember that people who are interested in buying will be opening and closing cabinets. Beyond removing clutter, be sure to wipe down surfaces to remove dust, dirt, smudges, and other marks.

Consider Home Staging

Home staging can help potential buyers imagine themselves in the home, and this emotional connection can make them more interested in making an offer. While you may love all your family photos and knick-knacks, you should remove personal items. Rearrange furniture to enhance the size of each room, and hang artwork to accent certain walls or spaces. You may even want to have a vase of fresh flowers in certain rooms.
