Once you have made these structural changes, you can consider outdoor improvements to the front and backyards, which may include a new stone walkway, a pretty garden, a deck, a gazebo, an outdoor living space, etc. These are all curb side additions that will attract more buyers and help sell quicker!
As you get closer to putting your Home on the MLS Market, you can make more aesthetic oriented changes. This may include staging your home by creating curb appeal as well as redecorating the home so that most of your personal possessions have been removed.
