Top 7 Things to Do to Increase Your Home’s Value

Ready to sell your home? You might be wondering how you can dress up your home in order to increase its value so that when it hits the market, it gets plenty of attention and intrigues interested buyers. Here are the top seven things you can do to increase the value of your home.

  1. Utilize Smart Technology
  2. Does the idea of a big renovation make you shudder? The simple installation of a few smart technologies in your home can help increase the value without ever picking up a hammer. There are plenty of options from smart thermostats, smart lighting, and even smart fire detectors.

  3. Make Your Landscaping Pristine
  4. Curb appeal matters. Flowers, trimmed bushes and beautiful trees can help give the exterior of your home a serious upgrade and increase the value of your home. Give potential buyers a great first impression of your home by removing dead plants and flowers making your front yard look pristine.

  5. Replace Windows
  6. Get rid of those old windows and replace them with new vinyl ones. You can save money on your electricity bill, have a calmer and quieter home and add value to your home.

  7. Paint Your Front Door
  8. It seems simple, right? But, painting your front door can add value to your home. A fresh coat of paint won’t break the bank and it is a fast and easy way to upgrade the look of your home.

  9. Upgrade Your Flooring
  10. While it is not the least expensive way to upgrade your home, it can make all the difference. There are plenty of options when it comes to flooring. Replace carpet with hardwood, refresh your hardwood with stain or upgrade the tile in your bathrooms. All of these options can increase the value of your home exponentially.

  11. Replace Your Kitchen Faucet
  12. Bathrooms and kitchens are what sell homes. Little additions like a new kitchen faucet can bring that wow factor people are looking for in a home. A modern and chic kitchen faucet can give it that sparkle your kitchen needs.

  13. Modernize Light Switch Covers
  14. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to increase your home’s value is to just keep it simple and trade out those old light switch covers for something more modern like metallic light switch covers.
