When selling their home, couples want to get as attractive a price as possible. However, with so many properties available in today's market, your house has to stand out to attract buyers. Cleaning, organizing, and baking cookies for potential buyers are time-honored techniques for generating buyer interest. To do so, you need to have a great real estate agent, but it's also a good idea to make a few home improvements before selling. Here are a few ideas for improvements that will provide real value:

Kitchens cost more than other rooms to renovate, so having a beautiful kitchen will impress buyers and set your home apart from the others on the market. Adding new countertops, cabinets, or appliances can clinch the deal and reduce your home’s days on the market.

Professional Landscaping

Since your yard is the first thing buyers notice about your house, consider having a professional landscaping service mow and trim your yard, prune trees, and plant some bright new flowers here and there. A relatively cheap home improvement, it can pave the way for a smooth sale, especially if potential buyers love working outside.

Upgrade Your Bathroom

Along with the kitchen, a bathroom can be the costliest room for new homeowners to fix. Therefore, before putting a For Sale sign in your yard, give your bathroom a makeover. Replace any worn fixtures, repair toilets or leaky sinks, and make sure the shower is in good working order.

Check Your Roof

If your roof is leaky or is long overdue to be replaced, go ahead and do so. If your home's roof is in bad shape, it will undoubtedly make potential buyers run as fast as possible in the other direction.

Carpet Cleaning

When a potential buyer walks into a home, the first thing they notice is the flooring. Fortunately, this can be quickly updated or repaired to impress buyers. For many sellers whose floors have carpeting, make sure it's in excellent condition. This can be done by having a professional carpet cleaning service provide a thorough steam cleaning, or replacing the carpet if it's worn.

Whether it's countertops, landscaping, or other home improvements, spending some time and money on these aspects of your home can make all the difference inselling your home quicklyor having it stay on the market for months.
