Getting Ready To List Your Home? Try These Low-Budget Home Improvement Projects

When you put your home on the market, you want it to attract buyers and sell quickly and for as much as possible. And, depending on the condition of your home, that might mean making some improvements before you list.

But home improvement projects don't have to break the bank! A recent article from Bigger Projects outlined home improvement projects that can help you make a big impact on a small budget, including:

  • Paint the walls. In terms of impact, you won't get more bang for your buck than painting. Fresh paint can completely transform the look and feel of your home, making it more inviting for potential buyers.
  • Upgrade your hardware. Replacing cabinet knobs and drawer pulls can breathe new life into a kitchen, making it look more modern, sophisticated, or classic (depending on the hardware you choose).
  • Fix your bathroom caulk. Bathroom caulk can get yellow and moldy over time. Removing stained caulk, cleaning with bleach and water, and adding new caulk will give your bathroom an overall cleaner look.

The Takeaway:

Bottom line? You don't have to blow your budget in order to make noticeable improvements to your home—and those improvements can translate to major value when you put your home on the market.
