Are you preparing your Indianapolis home to sell? Maybe you’re wondering which home improvements will help the house sell faster in a competitive market? If so, allow Hearn Construction, Inc. to share a few residential home improvements that might make a difference when selling your home.

1. Bathroom Remodeling

If your existing bathroom looks worn or horribly outdated, a few changes can make a big difference to potential homebuyers. Don’t go overboard on the bathroom remodel (no need to install a clawfoot tub), but do make a few key changes that will make the bathroom look clean, fresh, and modern.

2. Lighting

Proper lighting can turn a home from dark and dreary to fresh and inviting. Do a thorough walk-through of your home, and consider whether new lighting would benefit the space. These home improvements can range from a new fixture to a new skylight.

3. Neutral Paint Colors

Do you have a bedroom or living space that’s painted an electric yellow or barn red? You may want to tone it down with a more neutral paint color.

4. Flooring

Are your current floors dull, stained, scratched, or permanently damaged? Bad flooring can really hurt a home sale, so consider whether you need to replace the existing flooring. A general contractor may be able to repair or replace small, damaged areas (depending on the type of flooring and level of damage) or help you develop a plan for completely replacing the flooring.

5. Finished Basement

For years you’ve considered finishing the basement. Now might be a good time! A finished basement is a great way to increase your home’s value and add to the square footage. A finished basement is definitely a home improvement worth considering if you have the money and time to invest.
