Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value before Selling

 

If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, there are specific actions you can take to boost the property value. Put yourself in the shoes of a new homeowner – what do people look for in a home lately? How does your home currently fit into that?

Here are some aspects of your home that you can upgrade to ensure that you attract buyers at the price that you’ve yet.

Flooring

Flooring is by far one of the most important aspects of a home. Hardwood floors in particular can make a significant rise in property value at an evaluation. If your home already has hardwood floors, check to see if they need to be refinished to give it a brand new look. It is less costly to restore than adding brand new flooring.

For bathrooms, tiling transcends demand over time and it retains value very well. Make sure to have good quality tiling installed in your bathroom before you sell.

House Fixtures

Updating house fixtures can mean anything from updating cabinet systems to light fixtures and everything in between.

Maybe you have old leaky faucets or your kitchen counter tops could use some help. Little changes can add up to be an effective way to reinvigorate your home and see an immediate increase of interest and value. And knowing the trends in these departments can also really help you catch the eye of a key buyer!

Kitchen & Bathroom Upgrades

These include:

  • Fresh, bright kitchens with modern appliances
  • Squeezing in a new small powder room in your home
  • Upgrading bathroom fixtures

 

Adding a Designated Area to Rent

Having an area of the home that can be rented out to a tenant is symbolic of potential revenue to a buyer. It can be a great asset for selling your home to for instance, turn a basement into an additional apartment, or renting out a floor in your home.

By following one or more of these tips, you’ll see an amazing return on investment when you decide to sell your home!
