Whether you’re looking to sell your Chetek WI home or are simply ready for a fresh start for the warmer months ahead, there are certain projects that can pack a big punch. And better yet, if you plan them correctly, you won’t have to break the bank to get the look you’re after! We’ve included four home projects below that can be accomplished with a few thousand dollars and the best part? They will make a major impact on buyers without completely emptying your wallet.
Removing a wall
Many buyers today crave that open concept and if you find your Chetek home is lacking this desirable layout, it might be more achievable than you think. Removing walls is often less expensive than homeowners realize and can quickly make a home feel more spacious and improve the overall traffic flow from room to room. While planning this home project, you will want to determine if you will need to relocate plumbing or electrical within the wall as this is what can drive up the cost.
If you have old, single-paned windows in your Chetek area home, replacing them with dual-paned windows can boost the look of your home and its efficiency. These new windows can help block out any noise that you may have around your property, but also help you bring down your energy costs per month.
One feature that can really date a property is carpet— especially if you have an older home. Carpet can hold dirt, dust, and odor that can quickly turn away a homebuyer. Consider replacing your carpet with either new carpeting or hardwood which can run you anywhere from a few hundred per room for carpet or a few thousand for hardwood.
Does your Northern Wisconsin home have old appliances, making your kitchen feel outdated and lackluster? Swap them out for new models that can improve energy efficiency and give the space a quick facelift. Depending on which models you choose, new appliances can cost you anywhere from $300 per unit or into the thousands.
