Do you have some projects in mind for your home? Are you concerned about getting your money back on those costly projects when you go to sell the house? If so, keep reading. I am going to tell you the 5 best ways to spend your money in order to sell your home quickly and make sure you get a healthy return on whatever you spend on these improvements.
#1. Paint your front door.
Painting or replacing your front door can make a huge difference in the curb appeal of your home. First impressions matter and the more inviting and new that front door looks, the better the overall first impression. Have a little fun, choose a bold or dark color you may not normally use. Make sure it goes with your color scheme of the exterior, of course. Black front doors tend to have one of the best impacts according to Zillow. The best part is, this is one of the least expensive ways to make a big impact on the appeal of your home.
#2. Kitchen Remodel.

Everyone knows the heart of the home is the kitchen. That is true for any potential buyers. If you are looking to make a huge difference on how your home shows. Do a kitchen remodel. It doesn’t have to be drastic, it can be as simple as painting your cabinets or replacing your counters. Kitchens never fail to return on what you invest as long as you don’t go overboard and put imported marble from Italy in a starter home. Light, bright and airy should be the theme for any Kitchen remodel.
#3. Fresh paint.
Re-painting your home can make a dramatic difference. If you have a home that feels small and dark, this is one of the best tricks in the book. Paint it a light and airy color throughout. Worldly Gray or Alabaster White by Sherwin Williams are two of my favorites. Worldly Gray is a warmer Gray. It goes with warmer toned furniture well but is still neutral light and bright.
#4. Master Bath Revamp.

Buyers love kitchens AND Master Bathrooms. If your master bath is extremely outdated, you don’t have one or it is a funky layout. This may be the best place to spend your money. A spa like retreat off a master bedroom is hard for any buyer to pass up. Features buyers look for dual sinks, large walk in showers, and for some bath tubs are important. I recently took a survey on social media and the results were that 75% of people preferred a giant shower over a tub. In speaking with Pinnacle Interior Designs, she is also seeing the same trend with her clients. Comment below if you agree with giant showers over having a tub.
#5. Wood floors.
If you have the ability to replace flooring, always go with wood floors (unless in a bathroom then use tile). Wood floors have a huge impact on the overall feel of a home as well as the functionality. More and more people are at most wanting carpet in their bedrooms at the most and that is it. When touring people through homes, the feedback I get about carpet is that it holds onto dirt and never feels clean. Many people would prefer to buy rugs to warm up the floors and add comfort but that can easily be replaced or washed. When considering wood floors there are so many options including color. Over the next decade, trend predictors are saying that blonde floor tones will be most popular and will become a classic and timeless choice. Wood floors always add an elegant and warm timeless touch to any home.
