Your home is not just your abode of comfort and privacy, but more importantly it is one of your largest assets that can bring you an incredible return. However, to ensure you’re getting back what you put in, (and then some!), you need to increase your home’s value and make sure you don’t break the bank while you’re at it.
If you don’t mind a little bit of elbow grease, there are several easy DIY projects that can make your home much more valuable and attractive. If you have any questions regarding what you could do to improve your home please feel free to contact me, your local Spring Hill Realtor!
A Fresh Coat of Paint
Paint is undoubtedly one of the easiest, simplest and most effective way to enhance the beauty of your house. And since a gallon of paint shouldn’t cost you more than $25, it is also the most budget-friendly way to increase your home’s value. Just be sure to utilize neutral paint colors that are liked by everyone.
Focus on Curb Appeal
You only have one chance at a first impression, and curb appeal is what potential buyers are greeted with before they even enter your home. You don’t need to be a pro to make some simple and easy changes to your yard, which will delight your potential buyers. Make sure your front yard is clear of any personal clutter and overgrown bushes. Add some color by placing seasonal flowers in decorative pots by the front door, or in the front yard add brightness to your home’s exterior.
Upgrade the Kitchen
A complete remodel can be an expensive and time-consuming project, but you don’t necessarily have to spend a whole lot of money to breathe some new life into your kitchen. If a total overhaul is out of the question, some simple upgrade options are new and updated drawer pulls, freshly painted cabinets, and some modern lighting fixtures. Don’t forget, stainless steel appliances are still highly requested items by potential buyers.
Everyone likes a luxurious bathroom, and if yours appears to be the perfect corner for relaxation, naturally, a potential buyer will feel at home. A clean bathtub, neutral shower curtains, creatively-placed wall racks, candle-holders and other simple DIY tricks can help make it much more appealing.
Natural lighting always brightens any living space, making rooms feel large and spacious. Open up the blinds to fill up your home with an abundance of sunlight, and it will give potential buyers a warm and cheery welcome into each room they visit.
