Top 10 Home Remodeling Projects To Sell Your House Quickly

indexIf you are looking to sell your house you may be wondering what you can do to sell it more quickly, and get an even greater profit on your home. Here are ten remodeling projects that can help you sell your house more quickly.

New Front Door

A new front door can be a great investment when fixing up your house to sell. The front door may not even be that noticeable to you – you use it every day! But replacing a front door can give up to an 86 percent return in profits. You need to note also that your front door is one of the first things a potential buyer sees, make sure you don’t give a bad first impression. But if you’d rather spend a little less money and the door doesn’t look damaged, you can always just give it a nice paint job or stain it.

Add A Patio

When buyers look for a home, they want somewhere outside where they can hang out during the warm summer. If you have the space outside you can add a patio or small garden. You can also enhance your space with something new such as a pool or outdoor fireplace so potential buyers have somewhere to entertain friends and family.

Add More Space

You can also look to add more storage space in a garage or increase the storage capacity of your closets or another room by adding shelves or racks. If there is a huge room in your house, some people like to split them up to add more rooms onto the listing.

Remodel Your Kitchen

One of the top spaces in the home that buyers look at is the kitchen. This is going to be where they spend a lot of time preparing their food. There are many considerations here but adding new cabinets and a dishwasher can give you a significant return on your investment.

Replace Your Windows

You can replace your windows to get rid of any chips or cracks, and paint the windowsills with fresh coats. If you replace your windows, be sure to let your buyers know they are new.


Make sure to get new bulbs and replace any burnt out ones. Light bulbs can get really dirty and at the least clean them off and make sure you rinse out any dirty light fixtures, removing any dead bugs. You will need to check to see if any spaces are still a little dark and add more lighting fixtures to the home, if needed.

Update Your Bathroom

Bathrooms can be expensive to update and you may not want to go all out. If you can, you should focus on minor bathroom upgrades, like replacing bathroom fixtures and mirrors as well as repainting the space. Replace your tile floor if it looks too bad.

Organize Closets

Buyers are really into storage and the amount of your storage space can be a high selling point. Make sure you have adequate storage in all of your rooms and create some more if you have the room to do so.

Convert An Attic Into Bedroom

Adding more bedrooms to your listing is always a plus and turning your attic into an extra bedroom can become a big selling point.

Garage Door Replacement

Replacing an old garage door is an excellent way to improve the exterior of your home. It is usually inexpensive but not entirely necessary unless you have old doors. It can add an 83 percent return on investments.
