Four Tips for Increasing Your Home’s Value
The road to selling a home can be a long one. Based on your budget, there are numerous ways to increase the value or desirability of your home. Learn to improve the value of your home and make it more appealing with these four tips, which can turn lookers into buyers.
- Spend an Hour with a Pro.
Invite a realtor or interior designer over to check out your home. Many realtors will do this as a courtesy, but you will probably have to pay a consultation fee to a designer. Both professionals will know what appeals to the current market, which could save you money and unnecessary work. Be sure to respect their professional opinions; they know what will sell.
- Paint, Paint, Paint.
Freshly painted rooms look clean and updated—and that spells value. When selecting paint colors, keep in mind that neutrals appeal to the greatest number of people, thereby making your home more desirable. Distracting or outdated colors can make your home feel unwelcoming or just plain old.
- Find Inspiration.
An alternative to hiring a designer is to search for remodeling and decorating inspiration in design-oriented magazines, books, television shows and websites. Does a friend have a room which always feels inviting? Study the color scheme, window treatments and furniture arrangement to see what makes this area special. Then recreate your own version, with your own touches, at home. Potential buyers will notice!
- Cut Energy Costs.
An energy-efficient home will save you money now, which can be applied to other updates, and is one of the most valuable and marketable assets in the long run. Updating windows and insulation can go a long way to making your home energy efficient. Keep track of the improvements in your bills to show prospective buyers the benefits of your changes.
