Wellesley home improvement

To get the highest offers on your Wellesley home, there are some things you can do to increase its value. In fact, many of the changes you can make seem small and are easy to do, but can have a big impact on the type of offers you receive when you put your home on the Wellesley, MA real estate market. 

Touch Up and Paint Your Walls

It sounds cliché, but one of the best ways to increase your home's value is to add a new coat of paint. If your walls are looking a little dingy, adding a new coat can make your rooms look like new. Do things the right way by using spackling to fill holes or repair damage and painter's tape to make sure the job looks professional. If you are completely repainting, consider choosing a color that is neutral and can appeal to many peoples' tastes and styles.

Don't forget the outside of your home! Touch up or repaint your front door, the trim on your home, your deck, porch, fence and any other areas that could use a little attention. 

Transform Your Garage

Believe it or not, your garage can be one of the most attractive features of your home. Many homebuyers are looking for a garage that can house their cars and has room for storage or a workbench.

Transform your garage by cleaning it out and getting rid of or storing extra items. Sweep the floors, dust the lighting and add things like shelving unites, a workbench and stool, a tool storage system and even outdoor rugs to give your garage a look that conveys storage and functionality.

Update Your Flooring 

The flooring throughout your home can make a big impact on how potential buyers view your home. Outdated and worn-out flooring can send the false signal that your entire home is outdated or in need of major upgrades.

Replacing the vinyl floor in your kitchen or installing new carpet in high-traffic areas of your home can make a big difference in the look and feel of your home, not to mention the offers it could bring. As with painting, choose floor colors that are neutral and that can be matched with most decor styles.

Not all home upgrades need to be expensive. These simple updates are affordable and can even be DIY projects that won't require you to hire a professional. As you prepare to sell your home, consider making these changes to increase its value and make it more attractive to homebuyers.
