Inexpensive Upgrades That Will Increase the Value of Your Home #PropertyInsights

So you have finally made the decision to move. If you are looking to put your home up or sale soon, you might consider making a few inexpensive upgrades that will go a long way to increasing the value of your home.


Clean up the drive way/walk way

The outside of your home will make your guests and potential buyers feel more welcome.

Upgrade the front door

Considering it is exposed to all the elements, it tends to age the fastest with all the exposure to the outdoors.

Spiff up the flooring

Buyers are crazy about tile flooring, and the wooden floor finish is quickly becoming a trend in the houses that are being built up. Go the extra mile and spend some money on improving the floor quality in your kitchen and bathrooms, which are mostly the deciding factors when it comes to tenants making a decision about the house.

Update your fixtures.

Nothing gives a room more spice than new hardware. The right handles and knobs can go a long way to change the look of your cabinets, new light fixtures can also improve the look of the entire room.

A fresh coat of paint.

You would be amazed at the dramatic change a fresh coat of paint will bring to your house. The brighter the shade the better overall look it will give.

Go green.

Having a bit of greenery can make any space look pretty and give it a homely feel.

Sure, these changes might cost a little extra but it will be worth it when the new owners get to move into a home that looks almost brand new!
