The South’s Top Home Improvements

Getting your home ready to sell?

It’s important to keep in mind that the better your house shows, the better your house sells.

Most of the time, the small things add up to make a big difference. Homegain.com recently conducted its third nationwide home improvement and home staging survey to reveal the top do-it-yourself, low-cost home improvements.

Atlantans, get ready. Each region of the country has different tastes and conditions influencing their top priorities – here’s what the 1,000 REALTORS in the South who took part in the survey came up with:

Basically, we’re seeing these top 5 home improvements as the most recommended, based on cost and return on investment:

1. Home staging
2. Lighten and brighten
3. Clean and de-clutter
4. Landscape
5. Repair electrical

However, if you’re looking for the largest price increase to your home’s resale value, surprise, surprise: it’s the updated kitchen. And sometimes an updated kitchen could be as simple as repainting the cabinets and getting rid of an outdated apples-in-baskets wallpaper.

If you’re interested in the rest of the country’s home improvement priorities, see the full survey results here.
