Spring is here! It’s a perfect time to start thinking about a home remodel project or small refresh. And sometimes, all you need to make a space feel new and fresh is a good spring cleaning. Here are the projects that can provide the quickest improvements, not only to how clean and organized you feel, but for the value of your home!

 

Declutter & Organize

Those piles sitting on your kitchen table and the stacks of mail sitting on the counter aren’t just creating clutter in the home. They are probably also causing anxiety in your mind. An organized space that isn’t full of clutter not only makes our space look bigger, it allows us to relax and enjoy our home. Don’t forget to go through closets a few times a year to clean out clothes and accessories you haven’t worn. Donate gently used items to make more space and consider adding organizational tools like a shoe organizer or basket system.

 

Paint

Spring is the perfect time of year to refresh with paint. The weather is improving so you can leave windows open for ventilation and it’s warm enough that the paint will properly dry. If your home’s exterior doesn’t need a complete repaint, start small; choose a fun color and paint your front door! Paint is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to give your space a completely new feel and increase value at the same time!

 

Landscape

The saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is well-known for a very good reason. We evaluate things based on first appearance and first impression. It’s common for homebuyers to drive by homes they are considering before taking a tour – and if a home lacks curb appeal, many potential buyers will pass right by. And even if you’re not thinking about selling, keeping up your home’s landscaping and appearance will help you retain value and give you a space you’ll enjoy spending your time.  

 

Replace dead plants and cut back overgrown ones, mow and edge the lawn, pressure wash driveways and sidewalks and replace broken fence boards. Add a few pots of colorful flowers to your porch or some blooming annual plants to a flower bed. An afternoon of work every few months will keep your investment in top shape!

 

If you’ve thought about selling and are wondering what projects would increase your home’s value, or if you just want to know what your home is currently worth, Fresh Look would love to help. Just send a quick note with your address to info@freshlookre.com and we will send you a report!
