With the New Year just around the corner, you might be thinking about ways to improve your Lake Nacimiento home in the upcoming months. Knowing what to prioritize can help you plan a budget and get the most value for your time and money.
Given the current Lake Nacimiento Real Estate Market, you’ll want to avoid expensive renovations, especially if you plan on selling your home in the near future. The presence of distressed properties on the market will suppress the return on investment.
Instead, make sensible changes that will update your home without breaking the bank. Here’s a few suggestions based upon what I’m seeing around Lake Nacimiento:
Remove clutter from your home, garage, and yard. The New Year is a great time to say “out with the old” and get your home organized!
Now that things are cleaned up, make easy, affordable improvements. For the outside, paint the exterior door. Replace any torn window screens. Give your landscaping a thrifty spruce up; trim back shrubs and trees, fix bare patches in the lawn. You can add some colorful plants in the spring.
For the inside, paint any rooms that need it. Add touches like new area rugs. Try a new decorative throw blanket over the couch, or colorful throw pillows. Little changes add up – pretend you just moved in and the ideas will come.
In all cases, you should keep up with needed maintenance as your first priority. It can be tempting to let things go, but you could end up paying more money down the road.
A well-kept home that looks like it’s loved has charm and character. And when you’re ready to sell, it will have a buyer!
