Putting in a little elbow grease around the house is worth it if it’ll boost your home’s value, right?
As you think about selling your home, you’ll probably notice some areas of your house that could use a little love and attention before hitting the market.
However, there is no need to break your back (or the bank!) with expensive and difficult home improvement projects; here are three easy ways to boost your property value.
Tidy up your curb appeal
No need to drop thousands of dollars on a complete landscaping overhaul—instead, focus on simply tidying up your yard.
Start by de-weeding to shape-up your lawn and garden. Avoid harsh chemicals that could harm your plants and opt for natural household mixtures consisting of ingredients like salt and vinegar.
Trim your bushes and spruce up your entryway by painting the front door and adding some potted plants.
Focus on the kitchen
Homebuyers typically look for an upgraded kitchen with appliances they don’t have to replace soon after they buy a home. So a few small improvements to your kitchen would help your chances at attracting potential buyers.
Switch out or paint your cabinets to give them a more modern feel. Invest in some new appliances, if necessary and consider changing your sink or faucet to score that fresh look.
Remember, small and easy changes can mean a world of difference to your home’s value.
Paint with neutrals
Never underestimate the value of a fresh coat of paint!
Paint can take your worn-out, lived-in room and transform it into totally new and refreshing space.
Shoot for neutral colors like beige, white, or grey to help buyers imagine their own setup in what could be their new home. Buyers need to be able to see themselves living in your home, and this is easier to do when the walls are not shouting bright oranges and teals at them.
Trust us—these small but effective projects will not only have your home looking fresh for your viewings, but they’ll also significantly increase your home’s value.
