Key Improvements When Selling Your Home - Delaware Valley

Focus on Key Improvements When Selling Your Home

To get top dollar, consider investing in improvements that can give you the greatest return when selling your house. Among the most common repairs and enhancements that can add value to your home and yield a greater return are:

  • Repaint or replace entry and/or garage door(s)
  • Repair or replace sagging screen doors and other entry red flags
  • Landscape & trim lawn
  • Paint interior walls in neutral colors
  • Update or renovate the kitchen and bathrooms
  • Steam clean or replace carpeting
  • Polish, repair or replace hardwood flooring



Home sellers wanting to make improvements should consider the findings of the 2013 Remodeling Cost vs. Value - Philadelphila Metro Report (Mid-Atlantic Regional Report | National Report). This report compares national and regional data for 35 popular projects. Also, consult with a REALTOR® who is familiar with buyers' expectations in your neighborhood and can advise you on cost-effective improvements.
