Improvements That Will Increase Your Home’s Value

If you have a limited budget, but desire to increase the value of your home, here are some low-cost improvements to consider:

Paint

Paint It
Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways to make a home look fresh and up-to-date. From painting the exterior of your home to walls inside, fresh paint can add value and make your home looking more inviting to buyers. See more painting tips here, here and here.

Landscape It
The front yard landscaping sets the the first impression upon buyers. During warmer months, make your landscaping as appealing as possible with flowers and fresh mulch. If your lawn has some “holes” consider purchasing sod.

Clean It
A thorough, professional cleaning of your home can be a wise investment, especially for windows and carpets. Consider renting storage space to hold your things in order to de-clutter the home.

Replace It
Here are some items that you may want to replace before putting your home on the market to increase its value:

Fixtures 
Replace out-of-date light fixtures with new ones

Counter Tops
If the counter tops are in poor condition, it may be time to replace them.

Appliances
An old oven or dishwasher may not be appealing to buyers. Consider replacing older appliances with newer, energy-efficient versions.
