Ten Ways To Add Value

We have put together a list of ten ways to add value to your home during the marketing process.

  1. Clean, organize, and neutralize your space: Unclutter your house to make it look bigger and cleaner. Buyers need to be able to envision their own belongings in the home; so, avoid using bright colors and too many personal effects.
  2. Keep Your Lawn Green: Get your lawn in shape. A patchy lawn takes away from the home’s overall appearance. Your local hardware store has supplies to re-seed those unhealthy areas. Keep your whole yard landscape & trees trimmed & watered, as well.
  3. Update kitchen appliances: The kitchen is often the room that buyers gravitate towards first, and an updated kitchen can help sell your home. You don’t have to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look. Updating your appliances to the current standard and replacing cabinet doors and hardware can make a big impact at a relatively low cost.
  4. Update bathroom fixtures: A little change can go a long way when it comes to the look of your bathroom. Updating simple fixtures such as your sink and faucet can give any outdated bathroom style.
  5. Light up the outside: An easy and inexpensive way to increase your home’s outdoor space is to add lighting. It makes it more appealing and safer.
  6. Add insulation to save energy: The most inexpensive way to increase your home’s energy is to add insulation, which can reduce heating and cooling costs by more than 25%.
  7. Build a Patio Cover : If you’re trying to sell a house,  a covered patio adds value as it provides additional outdoor living space in our sun soaked climate, giving children and pets some relief during outdoor fun times.
  8. Painting your home a neutral color inside and/or outside refreshes the appearance of your home and gives it a nice clean feel that appeals to the Buyer.
  9. Store and organize: Ample storage space is a plus, especially when it comes to garages and closets. Efficient closet structures can help keep your clothes organized and can save space.
  10. Polish up extra rooms: Many of us use an extra room as a storage area, fixing up this space up and removing all clutter will enhance the look and feel of these rooms and enlarge the look of the home overall.
