Kitchen remodel

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms of your home, if not the most important room. (Besides the wine cellar.) Updating your kitchen will help increase your value immediately. Sometimes a quick fix is all you need, like new hardware on the cabinets or a fresh coat of paint. Others may choose to complete a full remodel to get the biggest bang for their buck when listing it on the market.

Curb appeal

Giving the exterior of your home a fresh look will attract more buyers than you might think. Take it from MoneyTalkNews, and try anything from painting the exterior, to adding an outdoor living space, to replacing entry fixtures to get your home noticed on the market.


Get your house in tip-top shape so potential buyers can walk through it without tripping over toys or scaring up dust bunnies. Give the buyer the best first impression you can by keeping your house free of clutter, so they too can feel how you felt when you first stepped into your home. They want to be able to envision their own style in a new space, and you can help enable that by giving them a clean palette to work with.
