Not all home improvement projects are created equal. Whether you’re getting ready to sell your home or just want to enjoy a few upgrades, it’s smart to pick projects that will give you the biggest bang for your buck.
According to the REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey conducted by the National Association of REALTORS®, sellers are seeing an average of 4.4 offers on their homes, with 55% being above the list price. However, even in this hot seller’s market, those who help their homes stand out from the crowd by choosing smart improvements can maximize their property value.
So, before you head out to the local hardware store and spend your weekend DIY’ing, consider these home improvements, which have the largest return on investment and can give you a better chance of getting top-dollar for your home in 2021.
Oh, and if you’ve got your eye on another home, consider our Reali Trade-In program. We can help you buy your next home before selling your existing one. We’ll even cover the costs to clean, prep, and stage your old home.
