For a home seller who wants to maximize his or her house sale earnings, it may be beneficial to invest in property improvements. In fact, there are many reasons why now may be a good time to perform property upgrades. These reasons include:

1. You can make your house an attractive option to prospective buyers.

As a home seller, it is important to do everything possible to help your house stand out to potential buyers. If you dedicate time and resources to perform property improvements, you could make your home an attractive option to buyers. And as a result, you may be able to speed up the home selling journey.

When it comes to performing home improvements, it is important to remember that even minor upgrades can make a world of difference. Thus, if you start small with home improvement projects, you may be able to significantly enhance your residence.

2. You can differentiate your house from the competition.

Oftentimes, it can be tough for a home seller to differentiate his or her residence from comparable properties in the same city or town. If you conduct home improvements, however, you could distinguish your home from the pack.

New siding, a new roof or other home upgrades are sure to impress lots of prospective buyers. Therefore, if you invest in home improvements, you could make it easy for buyers to see exactly what your house has to offer. And if a buyer likes what he or she sees, this individual may be more inclined than ever before to submit an offer to purchase.

3. You can boost your house's value.

Home improvements enable you to upgrade your house's condition. As such, you could bolster the value of your home if you invest in property improvements today.

Ultimately, it may be helpful to conduct home improvements and receive a property appraisal before you list your residence. This may allow you to receive the best-possible appraisal for your house. Perhaps most important, with an appraisal report in hand, you can price your home competitively based on its age and condition.

As you prepare to enter the housing market, you may want to hire a real estate agent too. If you employ a real estate agent, you can receive extensive support throughout the property selling journey.

In most instances, a real estate agent can offer recommendations about potential home improvements. This housing market professional can help you prioritize home improvement projects and ensure you can make the most of the time and resources at your disposal.

A real estate agent also will respond to your home selling concerns and questions at any point during the property selling journey. Plus, he or she will host home showings and open house events and do whatever it takes to generate interest in your house.

Perform home improvements – you'll be glad you did. If you upgrade your residence both inside and outside, you could increase the likelihood of a fast, profitable house selling experience.

Well maintained acreage with mountain views and at least three gorgeous home sites with long range mountain views to be conveyed in current use taxation status. On site well and septic needed as well as electric which is within approximately 300 feet of the parcel on one end and closer on the other end of this property. 124 +- acres is in current use and 2 acres is not in current use. Town has stated that a home site can be situated anywhere within the 124 acre parcel as long as building codes and zoning regulations are met. Miles of wide grassy trails, moose, deer, fox, owl, lynx, bobcat... all the critters! Horse heaven, dog heaven. Trout "pond," year round running brook with swimming hole. Wild berries, some gravel, walk trails from one end to the other. Accessible from a 50 ft wide frontage on Bridle Path Road OR from a deeded right of way given by the closest abutting property on Valley Lane for the benefit of 122 ELM. Could be part of a larger sale too... See MLS#4690044 and also consider MLS# 4690057 too as you may not want all this acreage, but then again it is VERY nice! But if not, then MLS#4690057 at $485,000 on 24 acres across 2 parcels of land still offers complete protection and might work better for you. There are two access points to this property... one is a ROW access that runs between this property and the closest abutting neighbor as one takes Valley Lane and the ROW is mentioned in their deed. It runs the length between the 2 properties.

If you’re planning to stay in your home as you age, or "age in place", it’s wise to begin planning to renovate your home for your future self sooner rather than later. This will save you money and headaches down the road. I know it’s not an exciting topic of conversation to discuss aging and how to make your home more accessible. However, it’s certainly an important one. And even if you never use these features yourself, they are great to have in a home even if just for visitors, such as your parents.

Renovating before retirement ensures you have the cash flow to fund each change you make to your home. By making these changes now when you don’t need them, instead of as you go, allows you time to do research on best pricing and how to add features that will look seamless in your home. Just because you are “senior proofing” your home doesn’t mean it has to look like an assisted living facility.

The best, and arguably most important, place to start is in the bathroom. This is also a room that accommodations can double as accessible and chic. For example, a lipless walk-in shower, also known as the European Wet Room, eliminates the need to step up which can result in tripping. But it also opens up the room to appear more spacious and allow natural lighting to reach every corner. When renovating choose dimensions that leave enough room for a wheelchair to enter.

You may also want to consider adding a built-in shower bench. This could be a seamless tiled addition styled like a window seat or a chic wooden seat that folds up and out of the way. Grab bars don’t need to be an eyesore either. There are so many options on the market for bars that integrate with your bathroom’s style instead of looking like an afterthought.

When house hunting for a new home, look for one-level open floor plans. Open floor plans are very on trend and a feature many buyers are looking for anyways. They come with the added bonus of having plenty of room for someone in a wheelchair or walker to get around. If a home you are looking at has any hallways measure them to make sure they are wide enough to be accessible for these kinds of mobility aids.

Choosing a home that is a one-floor plan is another subtle way you can “senior proof” your home. Stairs can become troublesome when mobility becomes limited due to arthritis for example. A lack of a staircase to climb also means never having to buy a chairlift down the line. Potentially saving your future self-money and the integrity of your home’s decor.
