1. Paint! It’s cheap and easy. You’ll be surprised at how much different a nice, fresh coat of paint can make to a room. If you’ll be selling your home in the near future, stick with neutral tones.
2. Update fixtures! You may need some electrical experience to tackle this project but even if an electrician is needed, the cost is still pretty low. Replacing old, out of style fixtures with modern ones is a very quick way to give your home an update.
3. De-clutter your home! While this project may not necessarily increase the actual value of your home, it will increase the perceived value. Picture yourself going to an open house. If the home is cluttered, the walls covered in posters and pictures, the floors covered with excessive furniture and other objects, it is difficult to see what the home looks like beyond these things. Remember LESS is definitely MORE.
4. Clean! This would appear to be the most obvious way to increase the perceived value of your home but apparently many people overlook it. There’s nothing more displeasing than going to an open house to find dirty dishes in the sink, laundry piled up in the utility room, beds not made or just general junk lying around.
5. Get the yard work done! The yard is the first thing home buyers see. Sometimes, it’s the only thing they see. If the yard is cluttered, over grown and unkempt, many people will simply drive right by without stopping to see the home. After all, if the yard is that poorly kept, what reason do they have to believe that the home is any better?
