Additionally, your home’s proximity to schools, offices, transportation modes, the cleanliness of area, etc. are also determinants. Therefore, upgrading your home is essential.

According to this article on, even the outdated style of a home could pull down the value:

Outdated Styles

If you have styles and fixtures in your home that were popular in the 1980s, then you need to update your home. Old linoleum floors or popcorn ceilings will be a turnoff for buyers. If you have bright colors, then you need to paint over them. Bright, flashy colors are not attractive features for most home buyers. Paint over them with a neutral color.

If your home is qualified in this criterion, it’s surely due for a makeover. With that being said, you may want to start with your siding. Your siding is like the face of your home; it covers almost all of your exteriors. Definitely, when neighbors or potential buyers pass by, it’s the first thing they will notice about your abode.

Replace your siding with a color of your choosing. And while you’re sprucing up this part, you should also consider calling a contractor for wood window replacement in Detroit, MI for a better façade that matches your exterior.
