INCREASE HOME VALUE – TOP 5 UPGRADES
TOP 5 UPGRADES UNDER $1,000
TO INCREASE HOME VALUE
You don’t have to spend a small fortune to increase the value of your home. Choose top-rated improvements that are aesthetically pleasing and will instantly catch the attention of a home buyer.
Two of them involve the entrance to your home, which creates a first and lasting impression. Three of them involve 2 rooms in your home that can literally make or break the sale.
Entrances & Front Doors - How will your home and ultimately they be perceived by others if they buy your home?
Kitchens & Baths – How will they feel when they picture themselves living in these spaces?
Make a splash. Create a beautiful path to the entrance of your home. Make sure it is clean, well- maintained and make sure it matches the style of the home. Pay attention to detail from the beginning of the path (well-defined) to the space that proceeds the front door (splash of color from fresh flowers and plants). Create a warm and inviting entrance, one that will be admired and one that will be remembered.
First touch! This is the first interaction with your home. Let it exude warmth and personality. Whether your look is craftsman, contemporary or traditional, make your door matter! If your door shows signs of weathering or damage with the slightest ding, replace it - or repair it & repaint. If it is in great condition, sometimes just replacing the door handle and hardware can make a big difference.
REPLACE YOUR TOILETS.
Critical! People care a lot about the look of the toilets they will be using one day . It’s an instant barometer on how well the home has been maintained. Replace with new – and almost always choose white for that perfectly clean look. Instantly increase home value with this option!
CHANGE YOUR HARDWARE IN THE BATHROOMS AND KITCHEN
Another aesthetic that requires constant touch and feel is the hardware for drawers and cupboards. It can update the look of your home & cabinetry in an instant and depending what you choose can create the artistry that sells homes. Focus your attention in the kitchen and the bathrooms as these are the spaces that home buyers weigh their buying decisions most heavily on.
PUT IN A TILE FLOOR
Clean & refresh surfaces to walk on. If your kitchen and bathroom floors need an update, put in a nice neutral, quality tile floor. Tile floors are easy to clean, long-lasting and durable. This will be an instant attention grabber as buyers tend to look down before they look up. A new tile floor will look perfectly clean and definitely tick a box for the home buyer looking for a quick move-in.
