Quick Tips to Boost your Home’s Value
If you find yourself a seller in today’s hot real estate market, there are several things you can do to boost your home’s value to get top dollar when you sell. Depending on how serious you are about boosting your home’s value, there are plenty of different ways that you can do this. At Sloane’s Carpet Secret we think you’ll appreciate these easy tweaks that will pay off and improve your home.
Paint, paint, and more paint
Changing up the paint in your house is a surefire way to increase your home’s worth. Freshening up the paint, or changing the color, can give your walls a new and clean look. If you’re feeling really dedicated, you can paint the outside of your house as well. When exposed to the outside elements this paint can start to get worn out, so a fresh coat of paint will make your house look much nicer.
Clean up the outdoors
Keeping your lawn groomed is one way to easily increase your home’s value. A freshly cut lawn with trees and flowers looks much better than overgrown, unkept grass. If you really want to go all out, you might want to consult a landscaping company to add flowers, more trees, or bushes to your lawn as well.
Try to keep your appliances up to date as well. An old stove, microwave, or oven, will get overlooked when your house is getting appraised. If you want a better value, then you need to have some of the latest quality appliances as well. These not only look nicer, but they typically are more powerful, energy efficient and worth more.
We live in Colorado, which means our roofs are exposed to some crazy weather patterns. Our seasons have rain, hail, strong winds, and intense sun. This is a lot of weather for a roof to handle and over time the shingles could get damaged. Nothing will de-value your home faster than a roof that looks like it is falling apart. Maybe you’re lucky and only need to have a few repairs done, but depending on the level of damage you might want to consider getting a whole new roof.
