Stage Your Home
Never underestimate the power of a good staging! In fact, many sellers’ agents and MLS realtors say staging a home increased the dollar value offered by buyers anywhere from 1–5% to 6–10%.
New buyers want to know they’re going to save money, too. By investing in energy-efficient home items like lighting, appliances, solar panels, windows, doors, siding, and more, you can greatly increase your home’s value.
Speaking of appliances, don’t forget to update them! You may be used to your old dishwasher, but a new buyer certainly isn’t and will want updated, functional appliances.
These days, buyers want all the smart tech they can get. Increase your home value with smart technology like thermostats, cameras, lighting systems, locks, and more.
Get an Inspection
Your buyer will have an inspection done. Why not get ahead of the game, discover any problems, and fix them early? This will increase home value and make selling your home easier and faster.
Paint Your Walls
Whether you’re adding an accent wall that pops or taking your bright walls to neutral colors, painting your home (interior, exterior, door, etc.) will add a new, fresh look.
Work on Landscaping
You can make this project as big or as small as you’d like! Add fresh flowers and mulch, make sure your yard is well cared for, and consider installing a water feature or more if you’d like!
Look for Small Luxuries
There are some luxuries, such as doggy doors, water filtration systems, and more, that will help your home be a cut above the rest.
Whether it’s expanding a closet, adding garage storage, or installing a shed, storage can go a long way in increasing home value.
Install New Flooring
Finally, consider installing new flooring. This may not be the easiest way, but worn carpets, hardwood, vinyl, and more won’t help a buyer be excited about your home’s price tag.
