Selling Your Home: Small Ways to Increase Home Value

Posted by: admin

If you are preparing to put your home on the market, you may be asking yourself: “How can I increase the value of my home”? The good news is that there are many small, budget-friendly ways that you can increase your home value without needing to hire contractors or spend a ton of money. Selling your home is an exciting opportunity, you should make the most out of it that you can.

  1. Paint – a fresh coat of paint can really go a long way. Try and stick to neutral colors that will be inviting to potential buyers.
  2. Cut energy costs – many utility companies offer free energy audits. Check it out and see if there is anything that you could be doing different to power your home.
  3. Plant – putting flowers out front can add to the aesthetic make-up of your property. Planting shade-providing trees can even cut cooling costs down if placed strategically.
  4. Replace old carpets – potential buyers don’t want to see carpets with stains. Swap old ones out to make the appearance nicer.
  5. Hire a professional cleaning company – before your first showing, you will want your home to be scrubbed top to bottom by professionals.
  6. Replace dated wallpaper – wallpaper shouldn’t be yellowed or tacky. Pick something neutral.
  7. Add energy-efficient fixtures – a decorative ceiling fan is always a good idea.
  8. Update the bathroom – probably the cheapest room in the house to remodel, the bathroom will show potential buyers that they can live in luxury. Get new tiles, replace an outdated vanity, and update the plumbing.
  9. Create more visual space – the appearance of the size of a room increases when you remove unnecessary clutter. Swap big curtains for blinds, add a mirror to the room, and remove any unused items.
  10. Upkeep your lawn – a messy lawn sends a bad first impression. Keep it nice and clean to impress buyers.
