Are you putting your home on the market and looking to increase your home’s overall value? Look no further! We have nine updates to help improve your home’s market value. Let’s take a look!
Updates to Increase Your Home’s Market Value:
Countertops and Cabinets.
The countertops and cabinets inside your kitchen can be an easy fix for increasing your home’s market value. While the countertops may be the more expensive option, you can easily fix the cabinets by repainting them and replacing their hardware. Take a look at the quality of your countertops and replace them if they are incredibly out-dated or in bad condition. Otherwise, repainting your cabinets and replacing the hardware should do the trick.
The kitchen and the bathroom are seen as the two most important rooms to buyers. Rightfully so, they are also the most expensive rooms to upgrade and fix. Most buyers tend to want to buy a move-in ready house; therefore, they are willing to pay more for an already-updated kitchen and bathroom. Plus, you can keep the updates simple depending on your budget. You can just swap out the hardware and fixtures, update the floors, and repaint the walls. If you have a little more room in your budget, take a look at the quality of your bathtub, shower, and toilet.
If you are putting your home on the market, you may find it helpful to ask your realtor for some professional staging advice. The way you stage your home can ultimately affect a sale. Plus, staging can be inexpensive since you are working with items you already own. Leaving you with more money to work on other areas of your home.
How your home looks on the outside can be just as important as how it looks on the inside of it. Take a moment to look and see how your home compares visually to the rest of the neighborhood. Make sure to keep your lawn tidy at all times during a sale because you never know when someone is looking.
Neutral Color Scheme.
The best color scheme for a house on the market is a neutral one. Buyers want to be able to envision themselves living inside of your home, and bold or shocking colors can disrupt that vision. To keep things modern and appealing, opt for a neutral color scheme.
The flooring in your home says a lot about the overall value of your home. Believe us; a floor can make or break an entire room. To help add value to your home, update your floors with new flooring that is in within your budget. Buyers love hardwood floors; therefore, if you can afford it, you will definitely see a return on investment.
The light fixtures throughout your home can be an easy way fix for a more modern, updated home. Switch out out-dated fixtures wherever possible.
Fixtures and Hardware.
Simple updates like swapping out your old fixtures can help quickly add value to your property. Try and find more modern hardware for your cabinets and match the metal with your fixtures.
Lastly, before you put your house on the market, have a professional take photos of your house to put online. This can help increase your home’s value online and give it a good first impression.
