Construction Industry Trends: What Home Improvements Should I Make Before Putting My House On The Market?

When it comes time to sell your home, many people are just so anxious to get it done that they don't consider all of the potential that there is in making some minor improvements first. If you really want to get the most out of the sale and make your home easier to sell, check out some easy construction industry trends that can help.

Minor Bathroom Remodel

Sometimes just the simplest bathroom remodel can make the biggest difference when it comes to selling your house. This would include re-caulking, re-glazing, and replacing any outdated wallpaper or paint. And if the bathroom is bad enough, consider replacing a few things, such as the tub, shower doors, sink, toilet, vanity, or fixtures.

Minor Kitchen Remodel

Your kitchen is basically the heart of your home, and the room that will likely get the most attention from potential buyers. A cosmetic update may very well be in order. You might want to consider sanding and painting your cabinets if you're not interested in replacing them, or even just changing the drapes and the window moldings. Depending on what type of condition your kitchen is in, see if new appliances, fixtures, countertops, or flooring is necessary.


Take a good look at the landscaping for your home. After all, it is the first thing that people see when they pull up to your house. Look into some new sod and some fresh greenery. Focus on adding a splash of color at the front of you house to really catch some positive attention. And if your existing greenery is overgrown or overwhelming, break out the shears and get to trimming.
