It’s always a great surprise to get a large sum of money for your tax return. How should you spend that money though? This year, put the money in a place worth spending.
Update Your Home’s Fixtures
Updating fixtures in your home is a very simple and low cost way to upgrade your home in a small but noticeable way. Replace cabinet and door handles, faucets and old light switch plates. Even if you’re not looking to sell just yet, it will be worth it for when you finally decide to.
Make Kitchen Repairs
Buyers want to be impressed when they walk through your home, but mainly your kitchen. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on upgrades. Small repairs will make a huge effect on the wow factor of your kitchen. Everything from tightening a leaky faucet or getting rid of burn marks on your counter. You could even consider updating your hardware in a modern finish.
Spruce up the Exterior
The outside of your home is the first impression anyone will have of your home, which is why it is one of the most important things to keep up with when you’re planning on selling your home. Aside from keeping up with lawn maintenance and gardening, make sure you check your home for any repair work that might be needed such as fixing your faded front door, cracks in the siding or a loose step.
