Three upgrades you should do that will add value to your house.

If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, you may be wondering what upgrades you can make to increase its value. While it’s true that some upgrades can raise the price of your home, it’s important to keep in mind that not all upgrades are equally valuable to potential buyers. Here are three home upgrades that have proven to be attractive to buyers and can help you maximize the value of your home:

1. Add usable square footage. One of the biggest reasons why people have moved in recent years is the need for more space. By creating a home office, finishing your basement, or building an open floor plan, you can add usable square footage to your home, which is sure to attract potential buyers. These projects are a great way to make your home feel spacious and accommodating.

2. Improve your curb appeal. The first impression of your home is crucial, and your home’s exterior is the first thing buyers will see. Improving your curb appeal by focusing on landscaping, planting healthy flowers, and giving the exterior a fresh coat of paint can help your home stand out and attract potential buyers. Even simple, low-cost upgrades such as replacing your mailbox or house number can go a long way in making a great first impression.

3. Upgrade your outdoor space. The summer months are a time for outdoor fun, and many buyers look for homes with attractive outdoor spaces. Upgrading your deck, adding a fireplace, or building an outdoor kitchen can make your home a more attractive and appealing place to spend time. If you already have a deck, low-cost upgrades such as power washing, painting, or making repairs can help keep your outdoor space looking its best.
