Super Cheap House Upgrades to Boost Your Home's Resale Value

Written by Posted On Monday, 04 November 2019 04:48

A few easy and cheap house upgrades can add thousands of dollars to your asking price when selling your home. Try these quick tips that won't bust your budget!

Every year, there are more than 5 million people who put their houses up on the market to sell them. But before they do, many of these people spend a lot of money on improving their homes to increase their value.

Do you want to do this before putting your home up for sale? You should know that you don't necessarily need to spend a small fortune to give your home's value a boost.

Instead, you can give one of the many cheap house upgrades a try. Check out a few simple ways to increase the value of your home without putting too much money up below.

Give Your Curb Appeal a Much-Needed Makeover

Read just about any home sellers guide and you'll find the words "curb appeal" scattered throughout it. That's because many realtors will tell you that curb appeal is the single most important factor when it comes to attracting buyers to your home.

Is your curb appeal lacking at the moment? Change that by doing these easy house upgrades:

  • Cutting your grass and removing any debris from your front yard
  • Ripping out dying or dead plants, flowers, and bushes
  • Painting your front door a vibrant color
  • Power washing everything from your front porch to your driveway

When people walk or drive by your home and look at it, you want them to say, "Wow." And it doesn't take much money to get that kind of reaction out of them.

By improving your curb appeal, you'll bring in more buyers and fetch more offers for your home.

Splash Some New Paint Colors on Your Interior Walls

You might love the bright pink paint on the walls in your child's bedroom or the electric green paint on the walls in your living room. But buyers aren't going to love it!

Homeowners should paint their walls neutral colors when they're planning to sell their houses. It'll prevent buyers from getting too caught up on the paint colors that are on the walls. They can spend more time focusing on the other things your home has to offer.

Find Affordable Ways to Bring Your Kitchen and Bathrooms Back to Life

Remodeling a kitchen will cost more than $20,000 in most cases. Remodeling a bathroom won't cost quite that much, but it also won't be far behind.

But just because a kitchen or bathroom remodel isn't in your budget doesn't mean you can't take steps to breathe some life back into your kitchen and bathrooms. You can do it by:

  • Painting old cabinets to make them look new again
  • Replacing old plumbing fixtures with new ones
  • Adding small decorative touches throughout the space

Your home's kitchen and bathrooms are going to be some of its strongest selling features. Make sure they look their best and don't appear as though they're still stuck in the last century. 

Use These House Upgrades to Make Your Home More Valuable

Increasing the value of a home isn't as hard as some people make it out to be. It's also not something that needs to drain your bank account.

Put the cheap house upgrades listed here to the test to see what a difference they can make inside and outside your home. With minimal effort on your part, you can increase your home's value in no time.
