On this episode of the podcast, Colleen will take us through five different upgrades that are popular right now. Do these changes like lighting and landscaping really help increase the value of your home? Sometimes it might be just as beneficial to improve the desirability of your home so that it moves quicker.

These upgrades might do that but don’t take our word for it. Check out what Colleen had to say and make sure your time is well-spent before you sell your home.

Colleen Quotes:

“In this market, we’re not going to see a lot of increased value by some of these little things. However, these little things do tend to interest a buyer and they might pick your home over the next home because of that.”
