Best Ways to Increase home value

1

Improve Lighting and Fixtures

One of the first things that catch your attention in a house is how brightly is the house lit? If the house is dull and dark at night and has fewer lights, it can affect the mood and design of the rooms. Create the perfect ambiance for your house with a good mix of chandeliers and pendants for ceilings, sconce, and domes for walls, and vanity lights for the bathroom.

Having more than 3 sources of light in a bedroom and more than 5 sources of light in a living room can improve the overall appeal of the interior.

Renovate

There are hundreds of ways to increase the value of your property. If your property is a bit old or just lacks the attractiveness that would make it look high-end, you should consider renovating the property.

Some houses may lack a few good points that decrease their value. A small kitchen, one bathroom in the whole house or no windows/ small windows can be the reason. Renovating such spots can add beauty and practicality to the equation which will make the house’s value go up.

If there is a wall that can be removed to make the kitchen bigger, do it. If there is an unnecessary store-room or balcony that can be turned into a much-needed bathroom, why not?

Make the House Energy-Efficient

Who would not want a house that is insulated against heat and cold or is solar-powered? If you can make the house energy efficient by installing solar panels that make up for the entire electricity consumption or even install a solar-powered water heating system, your house will have a competitive edge. You might have to spend a few hundred to thousands of dollars on such projects but you will be able to recover the amount along with a substantial profit when you will sell the house.

Make more space in your house

Take a look around your house- can you make some open space by knocking out some wall? Is there any spot in your house that you can turn into a beautiful bathroom or pantry? If yes, go for it as bigger homes are valued much more as compared to small houses.

For instance, you can go for a dirty kitchen addition. All you need is a spot in your house, a sink, a countertop, and hardwood flooring. It might not be cheap but adding value to your house will benefit you in the long-run, especially if you think of selling it.

Paint the House

To increase the value of your house, you need to keep it in the best and working condition. Even if you plan on living in the house, a few changes or additions here and there can make you feel good about your property.

Depending on the materials you have used on the house’s walls and the weather conditions, you should get it painted within 3-7 years. Some wall paints on cement walls can last as long as 10 years while the wood stain would need staining and polish after 3 years or sooner if you live in a location that receives showers all year round.

Paint the House

A fresh coat of paint can make the house look new and clean. If you are planning to sell the house or maintain its value, painting the house when needed can make the property stay pricey.

Add beauty

Use your home staging skills to make your house look attractive. Everyone deserves to enjoy a pretty home. Adding beauty will not only add value to your house but will also attract high-end buyers in the future.

Add beauty to the places of the house where you personally like to sit and have some me-time. Do not try to bump up the house value. Your main motive is to do a home staging makeover for yourself, not the buyers. To begin with, you can renovate your bathroom, kitchen, master bedroom, and your lawn. A minor kitchen makeover costs approximately $23,000, however, you’d be surprised to see the change it makes on your house’s value.

Add updated appliances and home system

Reducing your home maintenance issues is another way to add value to your house. But how can you do that? Well, I tried replacing my old appliances with upgraded ones and installed partial home automation and security system.

Take a good look around your house. If your roof is leaking, fix it, if you have security issues, get a security system. Replace your beater with an automatic coffee maker and see how things turn out for you and your family.
