House for saleAccording to Zillow, the median home price in Maryland is about $270,000, but it is more likely to increase by 2018. If you’re thinking of moving to another state or buying another home in the area, this is a good time to consider selling your property. Before you do that, however, make sure you can get the best value from it with these facelifts:

1. Siding

Siding is one of the quickest ways to give your home a whole new look without breaking the bank. Moreover, it can improve your proper’s thermal efficiency, which means future buyers can save on electricity. Uncle Skeeter's Roofing, Siding & Gutters noted that installing sidings needs skills, so look for siding contractors in Maryland and avoid going the DIY route.

2. New Paint

First impression often lasts, especially if you’re trying to sell your home. A more affordable way to give your home a fresher look is to apply a new coat of paint. It takes only a few days to complete, and it makes homebuyers feel you maintained your property (although you should). Remember that some paints may sell better than the others, though.

3. Kitchen Remodeling

Although buyers check every part of your home, they tend to favor some sections — like the kitchen. Preferences differ. Some like compact or modular, while others prefer something that would make them feel they’re Ina Garten. Most will look for newly painted cabinetry, an island, and elegance, such as adding stainless steel and marble or granite countertops.

A beautifully designed kitchen sells fast, but it can also be costly to remodel. Plan and set aside at least 70% of your renovation budget to it.

4. Trees

At this day and age when space is a premium, the feel of having a huge yard is a huge plus — and it gives you a good return for money. In fact, landscaping can increase your home’s value by as much as 19%. But where should you start? Invest in mature trees.

When it comes to prepping your home for selling, it pays to be smart. Spend on those that boost your property’s value.
