When Should You Invest In Home Improvements/Staging
Home improvements are necessary when your property has endured substantial wear & tear and it cannot bear any more, when there are some serious structural or severe aesthetic issues and when you may want to sell your home. Home improvements will immediately impact your resale value and it would also play an immensely significant role in home staging.
Now that we have placed on record the common scenarios when you should invest in home improvements or/and staging, let us talk about the ideal time to do the same. Can you and should you invest in home improvements whenever you like or want? No. You should pick the best time of the year.
Spring is the best time for home improvements and also staging. At best, you can opt for the summer. Autumn or fall and winter are not the best times for home improvement.
Spring is the most comfortable time of the year. It is also the time when weather doesn’t wreak much havoc. There are some technical advantages in spring that makes it the ideal time for home improvements. There isn’t much you can do in winter. As winter makes way for spring, you engage in the seasonal cleaning and your property will look much neater. You can work on the landscapes, gardens or the immediate surroundings of the property which will now look good. Working on them during winter is impractical and futile. Blossoming gardens, manicured lawns, trees decked with leaves and bright mildly sunny weather; all these would make any property look more appealing.
Spring is the ideal time for home improvements and staging, followed by summer. Painting is easier and you don’t have to worry about wet paint or improperly dried paint. You can attend to any plumbing or roofing issues at much less cost. You can actually do everything you want in the property to get it ready for prospective homebuyers. Even if everything is in its right place and you don’t have to attend to any impending problem, just staging a property and showcasing it to the market becomes simpler in spring.
Spring is when homebuyers embark on their quests to check out new properties. If you are considering home improvement as a part of your home staging strategy, then there is no better time. Depending on where you live, early or late summer and even early fall can be a suitable time for home improvements but there is no better time than spring.
