When it comes time to sell your home, it can be difficult to figure out what to put into the house before you sell. Here are some ideas to help you get the most out of your pre-sale renovations.

1. Kitchens
A modern kitchen is one of the most popular renovations for earning back the investment. Certain upgrades –granite counters, hardwood or tile floors, islands and undermount sinks — attract attention and can increase value.

2. Floors
Especially on the main floor, hardwood is very popular with buyers. Worn floors can be lightly sanded and resealed. Carpeting can be replaced with laminate flooring or hardwood flooring. An excellent upgrade that may instantly increase your selling price.

3. Landscaping
A well-maintained garden with attractive plantings, hardscaping such as brick or flagstone, and features such as urns or paths, add an elegant look to even a smaller home. A great investment – first impressions to your potential buyers and can go a long way towards increasing your value.
