Increasing the value of your home is a dream come true for homeowners, whether you’re looking to sell your house or hold on to it. Higher home valuation is good news all around. There are certain features and things you can add to your home to increase its value.
In today’s blog post, we’ll discuss a handful of things that will help increase the value of your home.
The kitchen is the heart of the home. Because of this, a buyer focuses on what a kitchen looks like and its current condition. An “updated” or “modern” kitchen is often at the top of buyers’ must-have lists. A total gut-job is not necessary to increase the value of your kitchen. Look at small changes that don’t break the bank like updating your appliances. Newer, matching, stainless steel appliances are exciting to buyers. Updated flooring, counters, and cabinets can increase the value of your home, too. These small changes can make a significant impact when selling your home.
Revamp the Bathroom
Give your bathrooms a facelift, big or small. Some bathrooms may require a bit more work than others, but making your bathrooms look clean, new, and modern will go a long way when selling your home. New hardware, a quick paint job, or replacing the vanity are just a few things you can do to give your bathrooms new life which will help increase your home’s value.
Make What You Have Work
You can increase the value of your home by improving its square footage without planning a
big addition. Look at the unused space in your home and see if it’s usable livable space. Are you wasting space using your basement or attic storing old boxes? See if you can create a bedroom or two, a bathroom, an additional living area, or a mother-in-law apartment from these underused spaces. Just make sure you verify you can increase the square footage of your home and that you get a permit from your city’s building department.
Having an efficient home can help increase your home’s value. Features like high-efficiency windows and LED lights are exciting to homeowners and buyers alike and can help lower your energy bills quite a bit, saving you money all year long.
Improve Curb Appeal
First impressions are a big deal. You can add a lot of value to your home by improving the curb appeal of your home. Make sure your landscaping is well maintained (it doesn’t need to be crazy fancy!) and that the exterior of your home is in decent shape. A few flowers and plants in your garden and a coat of new paint on your door can go a long way.
