Tips & Tricks to Improve Your Home’s Resale Value


May 29, 2019

With spring just around the corner, the Elevation Reality Group is ready to partner with you to make your dream of selling your home in Montclair, University Hills, Hilltop or Goldsmith. In fact, with April nearing, you don’t have to undergo major renovations to make your home desirable in this white-hot Denver real estate market. With a few minor changes, you can upgrade your home’s curb appeal and get offers above and beyond your asking price. 

First Impressions Matter
Got a creaky, chipped or otherwise dilapidated front door? Switch it out! It’s a fast and affordable way you can make your home stand out from not only the others in the neighborhood, but also the others across Denver that are for sale. Choose a new door with a pop of color, an accompanying screen door, or decorative glass to bolster the look of your home’s exterior —while giving it more personality. Ditto for broken down, warped, stained or cracked garage doors.

Cleanliness Matters
Maybe your home’s doors and garage doors are in great shape —just a little run down. Long-accumulating mold, mildew, dirt, pollen and salt can easily be removed by having a pressure washer come in to clean your home’s exterior. Not only can a professional pressure washing team restore the exterior of your home to its previous beauty, they can also wash away unwanted small plant life and make vinyl sided homes like new.  If you own a shingled or wood sided home and are afraid pressure washing might be too harsh, don’t be. Any reputable exterior cleaning firm will possess the necessary tools to clean your home’s exterior without causing damage.

Plant Shrubs & Lay Sod
A home is only as good looking as the property that it sits upon. If your home is for sale and it’s sitting atop a yard of dead leaves and old shrubbery, it won’t look very tasteful to prospective buyers. Hiring a landscaping company for a day can go a long way to improving the look of your home’s exterior. By planting new trees, installing sod, and removing debris, landscape work can give your Denver-area home the makeover it needs to display it’s authentic, beautiful self —while making the list of prospective buyers grow.
