If you are planning to sell your home, it’s always a good idea to try and increase its value to get the best price the market has to offer. The first thing potential buyers will see when they visit your home is the exterior. Your home must look its best if you want to make a good first impression and improve your curb appeal. Estate agents will tell you that a buyer has probably already decided whether they are going to buy or not based on the property’s curb appeal. 

Increase Your Home’s Value By Making It Look Brand New!

Paint it – A fresh coat of paint is the cheapest way to increase your home’s value. Consider having a professional paint your home to save time or if your home has more than one floor.

Fix it up – Do a thorough inspection of the outside of your home. Look for any visible signs of damage or age. Things like shutters and trimming should be fixed or painted. You can also update door fixtures and house numbers to give your home a polished look.

Make it energy efficient – Update your old windows to more energy-efficient ones to give your home’s retail value a boost. Also, check the insulation and replace it if necessary.

Upgrade the Kitchen

One of the most significant selling points in a home is the kitchen because that’s where families spend most of their time. Investing money into upgrading your kitchen with energy-efficient appliances and contemporary cabinetry and flooring can increase your home’s value considerably. Don’t forget to update faucets, fixtures, and countertops.

While a kitchen upgrade can increase your home’s value, don’t overdo it. All stainless steel appliances and marble countertops can make potential buyers think your home is out of their price range.

Fix the Bathroom

The bathroom is another busy room in any home and is the recipient of almost constant wear and tear. This can lead to several small issues that need repair and can turn off buyers like damaged tiles or chipped tubs and sinks. Take a good look at your bathroom and make any necessary repairs. It’s also a good idea to check that all plumbing is in good working order.

Consider Lighting

Lighting is another often overlooked area of a home that can make a huge difference in its value. If you have older light fixtures, upgrade them to more modern energy-efficient ones. Also, make sure you have plenty of lighting throughout the home. No one wants a dark house.

Clean It Up

Get your home clean and organized before putting it on the market. Not only will this make it easier to move, but it will also make your home more inviting to potential buyers. Remember to remove any family photos and other memorabilia. This makes it easier for the buyer to see themselves in your home.

Getting your home ready for sale is a stressful endeavor. By following these valuable tips, you’ll be able to increase the value of your home and sell it at a high price. If you feel overwhelmed, enlist the help of professionals to ensure your home is at its peak value before the sale.
