Getting top dollar in today’s market is not as hard as you might think.


Not too long ago, there was a period when you didn't have to touch a thing in your home and it would sell for an incredible price despite its condition. Those days are long gone now. In today’s shifting market, we constantly have a conversation with our own sellers about what needs to happen to get top dollar. Here are three simple real estate hacks that will improve your home so you can sell it for top dollar:

1. Exterior paint. This is the first thing people see when walking up to the home. You don't get a second chance to make a great first impression. Exterior paint can range from $4,000 to $20,000.



"Curb appeal translates into a higher sales price."



2. Kitchen updates. It’s also known as the heart of the home, so you want a clean, new-looking kitchen that stands out. The nice thing is that it's really inexpensive these days to get prefabricated countertops, freshly painted cabinetry, new hardware, and even a backsplash. This will enchant the most discerning buyers.


3. Landscaping. You can get new sod laid on your yard, sprinkle in fresh flowers, add a water feature, and maybe even set up a conversation seating for a reasonable expense. That adds amazing curb appeal, which translates into big dollars when it comes to the sales price. 


These three hacks will net you more money and not break your bank in the process. If you have any questions or would like more tips, reach out to us by phone or email. We look forward to hearing from you.
