Tips for Increasing Your Home Value

We’re all at home staring at our walls, why not do some easy home improvement projects? Doing so can increase the value of your home. 

Paint-One of the easiest ways to change a room, is by painting it. You can be bold, but keep in mind, neutrals are colors that go with everything, and are more appealing to most people. This project is also not an expensive one. Now it’s time to get busy! 

Plant a Tree-Landscaping improves the value of a home while it also makes the outside more appealing. Wether you are planning on selling your home now, or planting a tree now will help you in the future. When this tree matures, it will also provide shade for the home, decreasing the cooling cost by as much as 40 percent. 

Little Luxuries-Home buyers love little luxuries! Install a water filtration system in your kitchen. Not only will this save your household money, it will also be an applying attribute for buyers. 

Lawn Care-Take a look at your lawn, is it patchy and overgrown? Hiring a lawn care company to come take care of your lawn will help curb appeal. This is also a service that does not break the bank. You can also buy grass seed, to grow back those bare patches, and trim your grass and bushes if you feel comfortable doing so. 

Update Fixtures-That old ceiling fan that makes noise on a high setting will be an eyesore for a potential buyer. Head to Home Depot to purchase an energy saving ceiling fan. It will provide light and keep the room cooler during the summer, decreasing power bills. An energy efficient ceiling fan will be anywhere from 200 to 400 dollars. 

Organize-With all the time we have on our hands, let’s organize! Organizing will help keep your space positive, while helping you declutter and get rid of things you don’t need anymore. A home buyer will be more inclined to buy an organized home over a cluttered home. 

These small improvements can really pay off. Just take it room by room, and have fun doing it!

Be well!
