5 Easy Ways to Increase the Value of your Home
Want to up the value of your home but have a small budget? Then we have exactly what you are looking for!
If you want to sell your home, then this post is going to help you get more return! We are listing here five easy ways by which you can add immense value to your home.
You can get away with a DIY conversion if your attic does not require a major makeover. Convert your attic into a spare bedroom, a fitness or game room, or a study or private office according to your needs. You will just need to paint the walls and bring in your stuff. Tada!
And if it does need some professional expertise, then call up a few remodelers and get an estimate. Based on the estimate you can decide whether you should be investing in your attic or not.
Whether your windows do or don’t let a good amount of natural light into your home, make sure that you have upgraded your lighting and related fixtures.
Invest in porch, patio and terrace (if you have one) lighting fixtures to increase the value of your home at very low costs.
Front Door Replacement
It might not come as cheap as lighting fixtures, but replacing your front door adds huge curb appeal and also brings in a good ROI. Steel doors have the most ROI, followed by fiberglass doors.
Don’t replace your front door if it hasn’t lived its life, but consider investing in a steel door if its weather-beaten and in need of replacement. You won’t regret it!
Minor Kitchen Remodel
Major kitchen remodeling requires some serious cash, but a little bit of money and a lot of ingenuity for minor remodeling can help you increase the value of your home.
Consider replacing your cabinet and drawer handles and faucets to give your kitchen a facelift. Polish your countertops and cabinets to make them gleam. They will look as close to new as possible.
Also try de-cluttering your kitchen to have more storage space and organize your pantry. Get new mason jars and other small items that can give your kitchen a new look!
Improving your curb appeal goes a long way for adding value to your home. Not only does a great curb appeal appeals to buyers, but it also provides good ROI. Just tidying up your front yard, cutting up the grass, trimming hedges and extending tree branches, and maintaining your potted plants can have a drastic effect.
If you don’t have any of the above, try throwing a nice welcome mat at your front door, coupled with small potted-plants at the corners of the steps that lead to it. You won’t believe how much of a difference this makes!
If you think any of the above didn’t add value to your home, then you might have to allocate a bigger budget for remodeling your home. You might want to replace the windows and sidings, install a fireplace and get your attic converted professionally to get the kind of value that you are looking for.
