High-Value, High-Impact Remodeling Projects to Help You Sell Your Home

Focus on remodeling projects that will make a statement and pay off when it comes time to sell your home.


When you’re trying to sell your home, you have to choose carefully. Is it worth it to redo your kitchen counters for the sale, or will the new owners simply replace them with their own picks? Should you bother repainting? These projects, ranging in price from $500 to $10,000, are sure to impress potential buyers, ultimately padding your pocketbook when it comes down to the final asking price.


Cozy up a fireplace


Fireplaces are natural gathering areas even when a fire isn’t lit. Turn yours into a crowd-pleasing focal point with a decorative surround and/or an updated mantel furnished with attractive accessories. If your fireplace is brick, you can also paint or whitewash the bricks for an instant update.

#1 Reason to Sell Your Grayslake Home Now Before Spring

The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by ‘supply and demand.’

If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases.




According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the supply of homes for sale dramatically increases every spring. As an example, here is what happened to housing inventory at the beginning of 2017:


Putting your home on the market now instead of waiting for increased competition in the spring might make a lot of sense.

Thinking of Selling in 2018? Now is the Perfect Time!



It is common knowledge that a great number of homes sell during the spring-buying season.

For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.

The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller.

Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring as compared to the rest of the year?

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months in which most people listed their homes for sale in 2017.

Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,680,000.

That number spiked to 1,970,000 by May!
