Home Updates to Make Before Selling

No matter what condition it’s in, putting your home on the market will require some effort on the sellers’ part. Making updates to the home that will yield a higher return on investment is where your focus should be, whether those are major or minor updates.

Knowing where to make home updates and which updates to make are important steps in the home selling process. Distinctive Designs Home Center’s knowledgeable staff has years of experience in helping sellers choose design features that will improve their home before putting it on the market.

Below are examples of updates to make before selling your home.


Kitchen updates should be one of the highest priorities for sellers. The kitchen is where most of the appeal of the home lies, and even a simple refresh can make a big impact. Attract more buyers by replacing hardware, painting the cabinets, updating lighting, and replacing appliances if they’re not working properly.


Same goes for the bathroom. Buyers want to see a bathroom that appears spacious, clean and bright, so focus on bathroom updates that achieve these wish list items. Consider a new vanity, replacing fixtures, recaulking or replacing flooring.


Exterior updates are an important part of enhancing the curb appeal of your home before putting it on the market. If investing in landscaping or other exterior features to make it stand out isn’t a possibility, focus on cleaning it up as much as possible. Pressure wash, fix anything broken or cracked, mulch, and freshen up the landscaping.

Fresh Paint

A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in transforming your house to make it look as appealing as possible to buyers. Say goodbye to outdated paint colors and freshen up the space with a light and neutral color to make it look more open, airy, and attractive.
