Two of the most important things a home seller should invest in when selling a home are skillfully staging the home and improving the home’s curb appeal.
That’s according to Seattle-based online real estate company Zillow Inc., which surveyed real estate agents and interior designers, asking them to identify the most valuable home improvements for sellers.
Other home-selling tips from the Zillow survey include investing in small, rather than large, home improvement projects; cleaning and decluttering the house; and installing granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
“In a crowded market, sellers should prioritize spending time and money on upgrades that have mass appeal. … An inviting exterior and landscape, fresh paint in neutral colors, and clutter-free spaces will always appeal to a broad range of tastes,” said Amy Bohutinsky, Zillow chief marketing officer, in a statement.
