You’re getting ready to sell your home and know that you should make some improvements. But how do you figure out which improvements will have the greatest impact on the sale price of your home?
It’s always good to consult with a REALTOR® before making any major improvements. They will know what’s most important to buyers in your area. Often, these agents will advise homeowners to do as little as possible. In a recent, Prepare-To-Sell national study conducted by HomeGain®, 1,000 real estate agents ranked home improvements based on their return on investment.
The surprising news is that the greatest return on investment, by far, was Cleaning & De-Cluttering with a whopping 896% rate of return and being recommended by 98% of agents. This was followed by Home Staging at 586% and Lighten and Brighten at 572%. Click here for the full study…
