Whether you are getting ready to sell or are starting out in a new place, it’s never a bad time to increase the value of your home. And you won’t believe how easy it is! Check out these tips and your home will be worth more in no time:
1. Tackle one room at a time.
Make a list of everything you want to do in each room. Break that list down in subcategories to make it less overwhelming. Be realistic with your time frame on each category so that you can feel the beauty of accomplishment!
2. Small improvements can really pay off.
Don’t feel like you have to do everything all at once. Simple, small improvements such as paint changes, or even a new lamp, can make the world of difference. Space it out so you aren’t overwhelmed.
3. Clean your house now for profits later.
A house can never be too clean when you have it on the market. Make sure you also do a good job to declutter as best as possible. New buyers want to be able to invision themselves as if it was their home.
4. Curb appeal is important
Talk to your neighbors to get feedback on things you might not be able to spot on your own. Start by making sure your hedges are freshly trimmed and that your yard is mowed reguarly.
5. Upgrade the kitchen.
This doesn’t have to be a complete kitchen remodle. Small changes such as paint color and putting updated back splash can make all the difference in the world.
6. Beautify your bathroom.
Swap out faucets, light fixtures, and even that gorgeous pink tile if you have it! 😉 Upgrade your bath area. With an 85 percent return, install a shower with body sprays and stone surround tile. If you are not selling right away, you will feel like you are in a Zen garden every time you step into your bathroom.
7. Get ready for the future.
Adding smart home features to your home is a great way to add value in an inexpensive way. With technology today you can install bluetooth lights, thermostats, and even door locks that you can control strait from your phone.
8. Keep regular maintenance updated.
Perform routine tasks that can keep you in the know on what’s actually happening in your house. It’s best if you can hire a professional inspector to run a full diagnosis of items that may need attention.
9. Go neutral!
Especially if you’re selling a home. You want to be sure that a potential buyer comes in to your home seeing a blank canvas. If they can’t picture their decor, chances of getting that contract are less likely to arrive.
10. Go green!
These days people are more passionate about making a positive impact on the environment. Even little things like swapping out light bulbs with LED lights can save on the energy consumption of your home.
