About to sell your home and need some quick easy ways to boost it’s value? Or maybe the neighborhood you live in has gone down in value?
Whatever the case is, here are 10 easy ways to improve the value of your home.
1. Open Up Space
-Whether knocking down a small wall or removing that kitchen island, opening up space in your home will make it more inviting and pleasing.
-Untrimmed trees, bushes and overgrown lawns can hide the beauty of your home and take away from the value of it. Buyers will instantly be turned away from your property if the outside is not appealing.
-Adding lights to accent the inside and outside of your home will not only increase the value, but also allow the seller to clearly see all areas of your home. Natural light works great too for those spaces you opened up! '
4. Maintenance and Care
-Make sure when you see a need or fix to take care of it immediately. Sometimes ‘small fixes’ turn into a weekend of work which will be hugely inconvenient if you’re trying to sell your home that day.
5. Invest in Energy Saving
-Investing in solar panels or replacing those ancient heating/cooling units will improve your property and make you seem more appealing to your potential buyers.
6. Front Door = First Impressions
-Giving your front door a fresh coat of paint, adding potted plants and a welcome mat will improve the value of your home by making the buyers FEEL like it is their home.
7. The Ground You Walk On
-Floors are something easy to forget, but make sure they are clean and without ‘squeaks.’ If their condition is terrible, then replacing them might seem expensive, but will ultimately improve the value of your home.
8. Bathroom and Kitchen upgrades
-A fresh layer of caulk, cleaning grout, removing rust stains, updating doorknobs and even buying a new toilet seat will GREATLY improve the value of your home!
-Those small divots, chips and fading paint can create a less welcoming environment for your potential buyers. Putting on a fresh layer of paint can add greatly to the value!
10. Get rid of Question Marks
-Broken items or strange things about your home can sometimes be the ultimate deciding factor for your buyer. Fixing those minor things can improve your value.
Whether you’re selling or just trying to improve and maintain your home, make sure you’re doing it right!
