Springtime is a time when many homeowners decide to put their homes on the market; the weather is beautiful, the grass green, flowers blooming. If you’re considering putting your Flower Mound or Dallas-area home on the market, there are a few things you can do to increase its value. Considering today’s highly competitive market, it’s essential to make sure your home delivers a “knock out” first impression!
Here are a few suggestions from our Flower Mound realtors:
- Give the exterior a fresh coat of paint or new siding. If your siding is warped, buckled, or just plain worn, it may be time to replace. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders, but make sure you choose colors that will be most appealing to buyers! Many paint manufacturers have programs on their websites that let you experiment with various color schemes and combinations.
- Update the kitchen. Considering the kitchen and bathrooms are the most scrutinized rooms by potential buyers, it’s important to ensure your kitchen looks fresh and modern. Paint the walls, take a close look at your countertops, cabinets, and plumbing fixtures. Is it time for a change?
- Do your windows and doors “date” your home? Older style windows can be a real turn-off for some buyers. Consider replacing your windows and doors with more modern alternatives, those that are not only stylish but energy efficient as well. How can you know which styles will help your home sell faster? Review the homes that have sold, or visit home improvement stores and ask associates about the hottest sellers. No doubt you can also find plenty of info online!
- Get down and dirty with a little deep cleaning. This one doesn’t cost much, but can be the most important of all. Really deep clean your home; shampoo the carpets, scrub the floors, dust the ceilings, detail the bathrooms, pull out the refrigerator and stove and clean underneath them. Make your home sparkle!
There are lots of other things you can do such as painting the interior, sprucing up the landscape, etc. A home that is modern and well cared for inside and out will fly off the market fast at the right price!
