10 home improvements to boost your home’s resale price

  1. Doorways and decks. First impressions count. New doors, entries and decks score with buyers.
  2. Polish the landscape. Prune bushes and trees, mulch beds, cut the grass.
  3. Open up. Remove non-structural walls to create the open floor plan buyers love.
  4. Take care of maintenance: plumbing, paintwork, siding, windows, doors, insulation, furnace, AC systems. Power wash the exterior.
  5. Lighten up. Brighten up small spaces to make them feel larger. Open curtains and blinds. Fix damaged windows. Add motion detectors for outdoor lights.
  6. Floor them. Repair damaged flooring. You could replace old wall-to-wall carpets and old vinyl and linoleum with new flooring.
  7. Spiff up kitchen and bath. Re-face cabinets and install up-to-date hardware, clean tile grout, apply fresh caulk, replace faucets, install comfort-height, low flush toilets.
  8. Green all updates. Make sure anything you replace is Energy Star rated.
  9. Repaint rooms with neutral colors. Touch up where you can.
  10. Fix anything that stands out for the wrong reason: old wallpaper, broken thresholds, cracked walkways.
