Home Improvement Ideas to Increase Your Home Value

 

Though the weather says otherwise, spring is right around the corner. If you are thinking about putting your home on the market this year, you should start preparing now. Studies show that the best time to sell your home is right around springtime; between the warm weather, tax refunds being paid out, and the children in school preparing for summer break, it’s easy to see why spring is such a “hot time” to sell a home. However, before you slap a price tag on your home, you want to make sure you understand it’s true value first. A home’s value can be affected by factors such as:

  • Location
  • Neighborhood
  • Economic indicators
  • Interest rates

 

While you have little-to-no control over these factors, there are some things you can do to put the value of your property in your own hands. A professional can assist in maximizing the potential value of your home. Whether there are some needed renovations or home improvement services, HB Home Services offers it all, from kitchen renovation and bathroom renovation to roofing replacement. Below are just some of the improvements that you can implement to increase your home’s value:

Paint

Specific colors may repel potential buyers from your home. When choosing the colors for your walls, certain tones such as neutrals or a dusty blue add more appeal than others. Though a can of paint is another expense, it will give you a favorable return on investment. With that said, grab a smock and get to painting!

Add Some Curb Appeal

Other than in the scorching heat of the summer, winter is arguably the season you don’t want to be outside doing yard work. Some easy activities you can do to increase curb appeal include:

  • Mowing your lawn
  • Cleaning your gutters
  • Painting your front door a welcoming color, like a light or grey blue. 
  • Power washing the exterior of your home
  • Planting trees or flowers

 

It’s important to make a great first impression when putting your home on the market, so make sure the outside of your house is as beautiful as you’d want it to be if you were purchasing it.

Declutter 

The way the inside of your home looks is almost as important –if not equally important –as your curb appeal. This gives the homebuyer a rough idea of what their home will look like when they live there. 

Make Any Repairs, Renovations, or Upgrades You May Have Concerns About

It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to maximizing your home’s value for the market. Any needed repairs or renovations your home may need should be done before the home goes on the market. Kitchen upgrades like new cabinet or countertop installation, bathroom upgrades like shower door enclosures or skylights, or roof upgrades like ice/water shield installation will greatly add value to your home.
