DIY Remodeling Projects to Consider Before Selling Your Home
If you’re thinking about selling your home, you’re probably also thinking about how to sell your property quickly and for as much money as possible. If you have major repairs that need to be done, your real estate agent will let you know what they are. In the meantime, there are DIY projects you can take on that don’t require a lot of cash or skill, but that can help make your home stand out among the competition.

Your bathroom is a space that serves important functions, but when it comes to appealing to house hunters, aesthetics and features matter as well. If you don’t want to do a full bathroom remodel, smaller updates can still give yours new life. You can start with simple updates, like giving your tile and grout a good scrubbing, installing a new shower curtain, and replacing your towels and bathmat. For a little more oomph, that won’t take a lot of time, you can easily install a new bathroom vanity, change and old shower head out for a new showerhead, or even lay new tile floor.
Like bathrooms, kitchens are a room that house shoppers give high priority to when viewing their options. You want yours to stand out among the crowd, but between the cost, time involved, and inconvenience, it’s not unusual for home sellers to be reluctant to do a full renovation. If you don’t want to tear out the sink and all of the cabinets or put a fortune into new appliances, consider replacing the kitchen countertops, add a kitchen island, or even a cabinet DIY upgrade.
Other Indoor Upgrades
The more inviting your home is, the more likely you’ll be to sell it. Give each room in your home a thorough going over. Declutter the spaces and pull out your personal items so that buyers can envision themselves there instead of being reminded of you. Then give your home a deep cleaning. With that blank slate, take a look at the most-used spaces in your home — especially the living room and master bedroom — and consider painting your home and making the carpet look new again or even install beautiful patterns on your walls with easily repositionable Spoonflower wallpaper.
Last but not least, once your home’s interior is ready to go, head outside. Adding some DIY-style curb appeal will make your home irresistible to shoppers and entice them to come inside to see what you have to offer. Far from being an afterthought, your home’s exterior is the first impression on house hunters, and should therefore also be top of mind before putting your home on the market. With some basic improvements, yours will be a standout. Start with tidying up any toys or tools that are out and about, clean up your flower beds, trim shrubbery, and pick which plants you may want to add to your landscaping.
If you aren’t planning to leave your home for a few years, doing a remodeling project that makes you happy is a good way to get some use out of your investment. You may not get the full amount back, but you’ll appreciate it in the meantime. But when it comes time to sell, call Prominus,you’ll have less work to do to get it ready, and you’ll be able to rest easy knowing you’ll get a great return on your investment.
