6 Ways to increase Home Value


Whether you are planning to put your house on the market or you just want to grow your investment in your home, there are a number of simple ways you can increase your home’s value without tackling a large remodeling project.

1. Inspect your Home

Typically buyers will request an inspection of your home during the due diligence period. Beat them to it by regularly inspecting it yourself and taking care of any problems you find along the way.

2. Paint Kitchen Cabinets

You don’t have to replace all your cabinetry to give your kitchen a new look. Just give cupboards a fresh coat of paint and maybe some new hardware to spruce them up.

3. Replace Light Fixtures

Light Fixtures tend to be mounted and then forgotten, so replacing old lighting with new fixtures can give rooms a more modern feel.

4. Add Seating

Any place you have open space, think about putting in a table and some chairs. This showcases the potential of the space, which can translate into a perceived higher value.

5. Declutter

The simplest way to make a room appear bigger is to remove the photos, knick-knacks and other clutter that accumulate over time.

6. Highlight Storage

Creating or showing off the storage capabilities of your house lets potential buyers see that their stuff will fit there too. Even a wire rack closet system presents the appearance of organization.
