There are three specific things that homeowners can do to receive the biggest return on their investment and get the most money when they go to sell their house:
1. Upgrade your kitchen and master bathroom. These are the top two areas in a home where people spend their time, so they’re naturally the spaces that buyers look at first when thinking about buying your home.
2. Spruce up your curb appeal and landscaping. Since you only get one chance to make a great first impression, make sure that your front yard looks fantastic. It should have great edges, and there should be a nice contrast of color between your landscaping, your garden area, and your yard.

3. Modify your floor plan. If you have a wall that you could knock down at minimal cost, do it. If you can add square footage to a particular area in your house, go ahead and do it. Clean, open homes usually sell for more money.
If you have any questions about maximizing your home’s value or about anything...
If you’ve listened to any local news media over the last four years, you’ve been hearing that we’re absolutely in a seller’s market.
However, we’ve done some research and have found that it’s shifting right now toward a neutral market—perhaps even a buyer’s market. We tracked this by using an absorption report that we receive on a monthly basis. On top of this, we’re also seeing an increase in the average days on market for listed homes.
This means that if you’re looking to sell your home within the next three to five years, you should seriously consider getting it sold before the market shifts to favor buyers.
If you have ideas for any video topics we should cover, let us know! Otherwise, feel free to reach out to us with any questions you have or for more information. We look forward to helping you.
