MINT HILL, NC – Adding value to your home is a great way to ensure you can sell it for top dollar. Before selling Mint Hill real estate, you may want to make a few improvements to the exterior of the property. Here are the top tips for adding value by improving your home’s exterior.

6 Tips to Help Add Value With Exterior Improvements

1. Update the Landscaping



While it might not show up on an appraisal, updated landscaping shows up when you list your home for sale. Simple things, such as planting flowers, adding mulch, mowing the lawn, and adding lighting can provide up to a 100% return on investment when you sell your home.

2. Add a Privacy Fence

Buyers love the privacy and adding a privacy fence is a great way to add value to your home by improving the exterior of the home. It’s another exterior improvement that you can gain up to a 100% return on investment when you sell your home.

3. Pressure Wash the Outside of the Home

A simple and very inexpensive thing you can do to add value to your home is pressure wash the exterior. Make sure to do the driveway, all walkways, and the actual home. This may cost less than $300 and you will see a 100% return on investment when you sell the home.

4. Replace Your Front Door

A new, more attractive front door adds curb appeal to any house for sale in Mint Hill, NC. It can also help the new owner save money on their energy bill and add better home security. You might gain even more than a 100% return on investment with this improvement.

5. Painting the Exterior

Whether you repaint the entire house or just specific areas, painting is rather inexpensive compared to the curb appeal it can provide. Just be sure to choose warm and inviting colors. The average return on investment for painting is about 90%.

6. Get New Windows

It’s the most expensive project on the list, but one that might just get your home sold. Updated windows can help a homeowner save hundreds on their yearly energy bill. You will gain about a 90% return on investment when you sell your home with updated windows.

There are many updates you can make that will provide a nice return on investment when you sell your home. Some of these projects won’t show up in appraised value as much as they will help attract buyers and show up in the offers.
