Ways to increase home valueBelow are four ways that you can increase the value of your home… without spending a fortune in the process:
1) Clean and organize your garage. Many homes don’t have a fully usable garage—so if you have a garage, cleaning it out and organizing it adds great value. Even if it means storing boxes of junk with family or friends, find a way to make your garage appear functional and spacious.
2) Upgrade countertops. Whether it is your kitchen, bathroom, or elsewhere in your home, upgrading your countertops can make a big impression on a potential buyer. Concrete or granite are great, but pricier, options – while plastic laminate can work well if you are on a tight budget.
3) Focus on the curbside appeal. The first impression your home makes is essential—and in most cases, this takes place outside of your home. Clean up your driveway. Keep the lawn well trimmed. If possible, hire a landscaper to create an appealing design in the front yard.
4) Invest in great lighting. Lighting can make all the difference—particularly in important rooms such as the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. It’s important to have a variety of light sources, and dimmers are also very helpful in order to precisely control the environment.If you’d like to learn more about staging your home to help it sell quickly and for maximum value, please give us a call today!
