Are you looking to sell your home soon? We’re officially in the thick of home-selling season, and like most people, you want to get the most money you can for your home when you sell.

Luckily, there’s a solution: the HomeRefresh Loan from Primco Mortgage. It’s designed specifically for this purpose, arming you with the funds to refresh your home’s exterior and interior before putting it on the market. You can use this loan for any home prep work, big or small. Updates could include painting, replacing flooring, upgrading appliances, and more. So, you can get your home ready to sell without breaking the bank. If you’re planning to sell your home soon, it’s a good idea to start preparing now. To help get you started, we’ve put together a few suggested updates you could do to prep your home for sale with the HomeRefresh Loan.

Freshen Up the Paint Job

One way to make your home more appealing to potential buyers is to give it a fresh coat of paint. A fresh coat of paint is one of the most affordable and effective ways to improve the look of your home. It can brighten up a room and make it look more contemporary.

Install New Flooring

Your home can make a great first impression when you have a beautiful and durable floor. New floors can offer a significant return on investment. While hardwood floors are still king and deliver the biggest bang for your buck, installing any neutral modern flooring is a great idea to appeal to homebuyers. Choosing a new floor as an investment is one you won’t regret. Having a new floor will help your home look sharp and elegant, so it is more likely your home will sell. When prospective buyers notice your new floor straight away during a showing, they will see a move-in ready home, and they won’t have to worry about the hassle of replacing it themselves.

Update Kitchen or Bathroom

The rooms homebuyers most closely assess (and judge) in a house are the kitchen and master bath. These are the interior spaces where improvement can add the most value during a sale, so they need to look their best. A well-appointed kitchen will dramatically increase the value of your home, so it’s worth spicing up yours to grab buyers’ attention — the same holds for the bathrooms, especially the master bath. A sparkling master bath with clean lines will charm open-house-goers with modern upgrades like dual vanities and soaking tubs.

Replace Windows or Doors

New windows and doors have a lot to offer a property. They can improve curb appeal, give the impression of a well-maintained and updated home, increase energy efficiency, and in that respect, they can potentially help sell a house. The improved energy efficiency factor is crucial, as 89% of buyers cite it as a priority when house shopping. If you’re planning on any door replacements, the exterior doors are likely your best bet. According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2017 Remodeling Impact report, replacing front and garage doors adds a high appeal rate to buyers and a decent amount of value to the home for resale.

You can also make your home more appealing to buyers by making minor repairs and improvements, such as touching up paint, clearing clutter, and artful staging.
