In today’s seller’s market, quick sales with multiple offers have become the norm. If you want to drive the value of your home up even further, consider completing these home improvement projects before listing your home!

Garage Door Replacements

If you want to step up your curb appeal, a garage door replacement is a surefire way to do so. In addition to boosting the home’s exterior appearance, new garage doors also offer peace of mind when it comes to flood protection, home security, and energy efficiency (a common buyer desire in 2021). As such, you can expect a near 100% return on your investment when the time comes to sell.

Manufactured Stone Veneer

Speaking of curb appeal, adding a stone veneer to the exterior of your home is the perfect way to truly transform its appearance. This addition will boost your home’s value, and you won’t have to break the bank compared to more expensive natural options. As a bonus, you can specifically choose how much manufactured veneer to add, and the cost will adjust accordingly. Maybe you only want to accent one part of the home with stone veneer? Perhaps you’d rather go all-in and replace your siding as well? Either way, you can expect a great return on this investment. 


Decks have always been a sought-after home feature, but the desire has only ramped up since early 2020. With social distancing measures in place, buyers are looking for homes that offer increased usable living space. While not the cheapest home improvement option, adding a deck to your home is one of the best ways to increase its perceived value in 2020.

Kitchen or Bathroom Upgrades

When it comes to attracting buyers, kitchens and bathrooms are the most important rooms of a home. A fully gutted and remodeled kitchen or bathroom is sure to turn a lot of heads, but even minor upgrades are worth making here. At the very least, consider making these home improvement upgrades before putting your home on the market:


  • Energy-efficient appliances
  • Refaced cabinets
  • New countertops
  • Repainted walls


  • New vanity
  • Upgraded lighting
  • Upgraded shower head
  • Repainted walls
