I recently met with a homeowner who is planning to sell her late 1950s home within the next year. She wanted some advice about what improvements she could make to increase the resale value of her home.
This is a subject that comes up frequently with seller clients, and my advice is almost always the same: invest in things you will be able to enjoy while you're living here, and/or invest in home maintenance items you have been putting off doing.
Eventually the home sold — after my client invested in new windows and updated the HVAC system — and my client made that money back on the home because it sold above the asking price.
Replacing outdated HVAC, old windows, and/or an old roof are investments that will reap rewards when it's time to sell.
For this client, I suggested new windows and updating the HVAC, and she was planning a master bath remodel that she will get to enjoy until she's ready to sell the home.
