Making improvements to your home to boost it's value doesn't have to cost a lot of money.  Here are five ways to make your property more valueable without breaking the bank !

BASIC MAINTENANCE. Do you have a faucet or toliet that runs? Drawers or cupboards that don't properly open or close?  Appliances that don't work like they should?  Upkeep issues like these don't cost much to fix, but when ignored, they can significantly reduce your home's value in buyer's eyes.

PAINT.  A fresh coat of paint throughout your home is one of the leastexpensive, yet most effective things you can do.  The result? It'll make your home seem cleaner and newer, and-provided you choose a neutral shade, as you should when displaying your home for sale-it'll cover up an colours that might otherwise put buyers off.

LIGHTING. REplace outdated light fixtures with more modern ones, and swap your current bulbs for brighter ones.  Consider, too, adding light fixtures where thereare none, perhaps to highlight your home's best features.  Flooding your home with light will make it appear larger and feel more inviting.

FLOORING.  Soiled, damaged or outdated flooring is a top buyer turn-off.  Have your carpet professionally cleaned or replaced altogether.  Vinyl flooring, a popular choice in kitchens, is particulary inexpensive.  If installing new floors, choose something neutral in colour and subdued in pattern.

KITCHEN and BATHROOM FACELIFTS.  These rooms are often what makes or breaks a home's appeal, so update them: install modern, new light fixtures, faucet sets and drawer/cupboard hardware; replace damaged or outdated sinks, reface or replace cabinet doors; consider a new tub surround.
