Trying to add value to your home without shelling out the big bucks can often times leave a home seller feeling overwhelmed. What quick updates will have the greatests impact on homebuyers? Here are 4 value-adding budget projects to consider when you’re getting ready to sell your home.
1. A simple step to adding value to your home is to clean and de-clutter. Store personal touches in a place outside of the home; this allows the buyer to envision the home as it could be for them, as opposed to seeing it as your home. Clean every nook and space, windows, walls, carpets, baseboards, etc. but avoid using harsh cleaners as smells can play a role in the appeal of a house to a would be buyer.
2. A good solid coat of paint can brighten up any room. Before you begin to paint however, be sure you have patched up any holes or dings in the wall and ceiling and apply a primer. Use neutral colors throughout the house to appeal to the broadest range of tastes and don’t forget the baseboards!
3. Attention to detail is another great way to add value to your home. Take a look at your home’s hardware – simply changing out handles and knobs or installing new faucets can create a more modernized look and set a tone the buyers will adore.
4. A room is sure to captivate a buyer if the lighting is right. Updating old lighting and adding new pieces can make the home look more appealing and help to set the mood for any room.
