Whether you are selling your home now or in the future, you always want to think about its overall value. There are many affordable DIY things you could do to your home now, that will pay off big in the long run. So if you are looking to get the best return possible, here’s how to affordably boost your home’s value:
Get Curb Appeal
The first thing potential buyers will see is your entry way — so make it desirable. Add some plants and shrubs along your driveway, trim and maintain all bushes and plants, and add some beautiful landscape lighting. First impressions are everything, so why not wow them from the first step!
Rip Up The Rugs
If you are currently covering wood floors up with carpet, get to ripping! Hardwood floors are easy to maintain, essential for preventing allergies and asthma, and can go with any decor. If you are lucky, you might not even need to refinish them; meaning a little free labor just gained you some serious home value.
Revamp The Cabinets
A full cabinet reinstall is not needed to bring your cabinets up to date! To add a quick update you’ll just need some paint and a few accessories. You can even change up the handles and knobs on your cabinets drawers and doors. Adding these simple updated touches can make your home the hottest thing on the market.
Schedule Your Tune Ups
So beyond the aesthetics, the one thing that makes your home appealing is if it’s move in ready. Potential buyers want to be assured that they won’t be stepping into a money pit. Schedule regular HVAC maintenance and keep a record to show your future home owners. Besides, regular maintenance can keep your energy bill low and your indoor air quality up!
