3 Cost-Effective Fixes to Improve Your Resale Value

Improvement Tip #1: Don’t Use Cheap Finishes

We’ve talked about how cheap finishes can kill your sale, but there’s a little more to it than just looks. You’ll need to invest in quality—not just attractive (but still cheap) finishes.

Improvement Tip #2: Hide an Ordinary Concrete Foundation

While this doesn’t change anything about the structural integrity of the house, adding bricks or even stone veneer can make a huge difference in the way potential buyers see the home.

Improvement Tip #3: Add a Window Seat

If there’s a spot where the views are great (or there’s a window—either way), think about adding a window seat to create a really attractive spot in the house. People like to think about relaxing, even if they don’t do it often enough, so this little adjustment can go a long way.
