5 Inexpensive Ways to Increase House Value

Home owners want to get top dollar when selling a house without spending a lot of money.  Here are some tips to increase your house value without over spending.


1.  Paint. 

Repainting rooms will give a fresh look and increase the home's value.  If you need advice on colour schemes, a colour consultant can be hired to give advice for a minimal fee.  They are the experts on latest colour trends and what will be best for resale.

2.  Energy Efficiency

Local energy companies will give home owners a free energy consultation and give you tips on where to improve.  By making your home more energy efficient,  you not only save money each month, it adds more value to your home when you sell.

3.  Plant

Planting trees and shrubs add valuable curb appeal to your home. 

4. Lawn

A weedy, un-kept lawn is not a good selling feature.  You can hire a lawn care professional to improve the quality of your lawn which will boost your curb appeal and increase your home value in the process.

5. Room updates

Even small improvements will make a difference.  For instance, removing dated wallpaper, replacing a mirror or light fixture, knobs, doors,  painting etc.  These inexpensive updates will certainly add more value.
