As the spring and summer seasons approach, many people are wondering how to prep their home before putting it on the market. Everyone is wondering, "What can I do to add value to my home?"

There are many things to do to your home that will ramp up your home value, but here are a few of my favorites:

1. Replace Your Front Door

Your front door is something you probably don't notice anymore, especially if you don't use it as your main source of entry. Adding a colorful or steel front door might be the only thing you're missing from that initial "love at first sight" reaction you've been looking for!

2. Add a Deck of Patio

No matter where you live, buyers want outdoor living space. You can recoup a big percentage of your investment on a new wood deck. If you already have outdoor space, consider sprucing it up with a water feature, an outdoor fireplace, or new landscaping.

3. Remodel your Kitchen

Buyers look most carefully at kitchens and bathrooms, so you should, too. If you’re selling soon, don’t overspend on your kitchen. You may be able to do a couple of relatively minor fixes, such as replacing the appliances and painting the cabinets, or just replacing the counters with granite to garner a good offer.

4.Replace your Windows

Buyers are interested in how your windows look, their energy efficiency, and how much natural light comes into the home. Whether you’re replacing vinyl- or wood-frame windows, a change in windows can easily add to the appeal of your home. When you’re ready to market your home, be sure to highlight the new windows as a selling point.

5. Update your Bathroom

While a full, upscale bathroom remodel project can cost over $50,000 and add only about $32,000 to your home’s resale value, you can make cost-effective minor upgrades. Get a 73 percent return on your investment with these bathroom upgrades: Replace your fixtures and your mirror, repaint the space and jazz it up with some crown molding (depending on your home’s style) and you’ll have a space that looks new. While you’re there, redo the caulk around your tub and shower and replace the grout on your tile flooring. If your tub is in bad shape, you may be able to have it resurfaced rather than replace it.
