These four things can go a long way to boosting your home's value!


1. Spruce up the paint job is an excellent way to add some immediate curb appeal for those potential buyers driving by. Just touching up the outside trim or painting the inside baseboards with a new coat of paint will make a big difference especially during an open house. Hiring a professional painter can cost anywhere from $1,000-$5000 depending on the sqft footage of the home but often times you can do it yourself for a fraction of the cost. Your local hardware stores should offer a selection of affordable paints and YouTube can offer a variety of tutorials on how to prep for painting the interior and exterior of a home. Another helpful option for many is to browse Pinterest for sources of inspiration.

2. Modernize your kitchen will increase the interest of your home and help it stand out to potential buyers. Perhaps paint the kitchen or add new tiling. These upgrades can be done yourself and help renovate the look of a space especially a smaller kitchen. Another option is to think about updating the cabinets and to make sure they are space functional. Refinishing cabinets can also help refresh the space and adding a new backsplash over the oven can add a new look!

3. Upgrading the bathrooms makes a huge difference. Replacing fixtures with low-flow versions that let less water out when turned on is an example of a more eco-friendly cost-efficient upgrade. Updating your shower heads and lighting fixtures can be a relatively inexpensive upgrade. Wallpaper or paint can be changed and bathroom tiles can also be replaced with something easier to clean but more attractive for buyers. Another option is to upgrade old toilets to new models that potential buyers will always appreciate.

4. Update the landscaping is the best thing a homeowner can do to in order to get the maximum amount of potential buyers. Be sure and trim trees and bushes and make sure the lawn is manicured. Planting flowers or other plants will also help the home feel buyer friendly from the outside.
