Are you thinking about selling your home? Before you do, consider making some updates to it in order to boost your chances of making a sale. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we can help you decide which home improvement projects could be beneficial. For now, we suggest considering:

Window Replacement

Many homeowners tend to pass up the idea of replacement windows and instead choose to update their home in other ways (such as repainting or replacing shutters). What many don’t realize, however, is that replacement windows can make a huge difference in the look of your home. Our experts can help you choose a style that will make your home pop and give it an extra boost of curb appeal.

Minor Bath Remodel

A minor bath remodel can do wonders for your home if you’re trying to sell it. Bath solutions like replacing your tub, tile flooring, toilet, sink, and vanity can give your bathroom an entirely new and updated look – not to mention a payback of around 100% (which means it’s well worth the effort).


One of the first things a potential buyer will notice about your home is the landscaping, so make sure it’s well-placed and healthy. Plant some trees to give your home privacy from your neighbors and add homey appeal by hanging decorative planters on your porch or deck. You can also plant flowers that complement the exterior colors of your home to tie everything together.

Wood Deck

If you’ve always thought about building a wood deck in your back yard, now would be a great time to do so. According to HGTV’s Front Door, a 16×20 ft. pressure-treated wood deck with a simple, appealing layout can give you a payback of up to 90% and can give your home a great element of design.

New Front Door

Installing a new front door can have a major impact on the curb appeal of your home. By replacing your old one, you’ll not only make your home look newer, but you’ll make it more inviting and make a good first impression on potential buyers.
