Instead of spending your tax refund on shopping sprees or vacations why not invest your money back into your home. Your home is one of your largest assets so it is important to take care of your home so when it comes time to sell you will be in good shape to make a profit. Some of the home improvements you may want to consider include sprucing up the exterior of your home, enhancing your curb appeal.

Some ideas for this may be upgrading your front door and or garage door. These two doors play a big role in your homes appearance and will also increase your resale value.

Another easy thing you can do to make your home feel new is a fresh coat of paint. Paint is inexpensive and can transform a room. If you plan on selling soon, opt for a neutral color palette that is pleasing for a broader audience.

Minor kitchen upgrades typically have high recoup rate at resale. Depending on your budget you may want to replace old appliances for stainless steel or choose to update your cabinets by re-facing cabinet doors and upgrading hardware. New flooring and light fixtures can also add a great deal of character to your home.
