Profitable home improvements when moving
Moving can be a difficult and stressful period in our lives, but your best moving company from Delray Beach, FL, Liberty Moves, is here to make the process easier for you. Before you pack your bags and call in the movers, you need to make sure your house is ready to be sold. In order to make the most off of the sale, there are certain things you can and should do to increase the value of your home, so take a look at some of the best home improvements and remodels that you could take on.
Refresh your home with new paint
The first, and probably the smartest and easiest thing to do is to repaint your house. If you haven’t repainted your home in a while, now is the best time to do it. It will leave a great impression on the potential buyer because the house will look fresh, new and well-maintained. And here is a piece of useful advice – the best time to do it is when you have already packed everything you plan to take with you; there will be fewer things lying around that you have to move or protect from the paint.
Update your kitchen
You don’t have to completely remodel your kitchen, or buy a new one, but a minor remodel and improvement can go a long way towards adding value and selling your house. For many people, the kitchen is the focal point of the home and that is one of the first things they will look at. Replace the cabinet doors for example, the countertops, or even just the handles, buy some new appliances to replace the outdated ones, and your kitchen will look brand new.
Adding or updating the insulation in the house is very important because it increases its energy efficiency, and that is one of the most important factors for buyers, sometimes even the deciding factor. Proper insulation means the house will be warm or cold enough without wasting too much energy or paying very high utility bills. Focus especially on the attic because that’s where the air leakages often occur.
Update your front and garage doors
This is also a simple, but a noticeable house improvement. The doors are one of the first things you see when you’re approaching a house, whether the front doors or the garage doors. Updating or replacing them will significantly add to the curb appeal, and will leave a great first impression. If they are old and dated, think about replacing them completely. If they are not, then add a new coat of paint to refresh their look.
Remodel your basement
A basement can be used for many different purposes so if you have one, it is important to make the most of it. It can add square footage to your house, and add significant value to it when the buyers see its great potential. You can turn it into a room (a playroom, a guest bedroom, a workplace, etc.) or simply do some renovations it needs (paint job, new floors, de-cluttering, and cleaning) and leave it empty for the buyers to decide how to use it.
Now that your old house is in top shape and improved, you can turn to your number one number one professional moving company, Liberty Moves, and let us help you pack, move and unpack in your new home.
