INCREASE YOUR HOME'S VALUE
Homeowners are always looking for ways to increase the value of their homes, which will help them later when they decide to sell their home or take out a home equity loan. Here are some ways you can increase the value of your home this year.
Update the Kitchen
If you haven’t remodeled your kitchen in recent years, you might be surprised at how much of a difference it can make in your home’s resale value. For example, new cabinets and countertops will update your space and give buyers something to write home about. Other quick upgrades like recaulking your bathtub or painting a few rooms will also do wonders for updating your space without spending a fortune.
Give Attention to Hard Surfaces
Unlike carpeting, hard surfaces (like tile and hardwood) don’t absorb water. They do a better job of keeping your home clean—which means there are fewer smells lingering around your house. Plus, they make it easier for you to scrub up messes. If something spills on tile or hardwood floors, you can mop it up much more quickly than if everything is carpeted.
Modernize the Bathroom
If your bathroom is dated or has a run-down look, then it’s probably time for an update. By upgrading your old fixtures and adding new features (like new faucets), you can give your bathroom an instant facelift.
Revamp the Appliances
Old appliances are not only unattractive; they’re also likely to break down more frequently than newer models. Outdated dishwashers, fridges, stoves, and washers use more energy and often don’t have as many eco-friendly options as today’s models.
The Right Curb Appeal
Curb appeal isn’t just about what greets your guests when they pull up; it’s also about how your property looks from a distance. In short, curb appeal is key for showing off what’s great about your home—and hiding any flaws. Start by tidying up landscaping features such as overgrown bushes or dead flowers in planters.
Get Rid of Clutter
A cluttered house can negatively impact your family’s quality of life. Clutter tends to breed stress, which in turn leads to anxiety and lethargy. And who wants that? Not only will you feel better once you rid yourself of clutter, but you’ll also add some value back into your home as well. By getting rid of stuff you don’t need and adding furniture that works for your space, it’s a win-win.
