Planning on putting your home on the market soon? It pays to make sure you’re getting the maximum equity out of your home. At the same time, you don’t want to splurge your money on any large-scale remodeling projects which may break the bank and not provide much added value. If you’re looking for easy and inexpensive ways to boost your home value before selling, consider the following DIY projects!
Giving Your Kitchen a Makeover
If your kitchen looks like it’s stuck in a time warp, giving it an update will make your home more appealing to buyers. Instead of purchasing expensive new appliances, consider giving your kitchen a new look with some cosmetic changes. Paint your cabinets a neutral color to cover up scratches and dings without dipping into the kids’ college fund. You can also swap outdated hardware with new drawer and cabinet pulls.
Freshen Up the Bathrooms
Bathrooms are almost as important to homebuyers as kitchens, giving you another avenue to maximize your home value. You may not be able to afford a total bathroom makeover, but replacing old fixtures is not expensive and will improve the look and functionality of your bathroom. You can also apply a fresh coat of paint and hang new towels, and don’t forget to give the bathroom a nice scrubbing before showing it off to potential buyers!
Declutter Your Space
Getting rid of items you don’t need anymore is important towards boosting your home value as it creates the illusion of additional space. Potential homebuyers want to visualize themselves living in the home when they walk through and your stuff will distract from their imaginations. Taking a weekend to tackle your clutter is time well spent.
Add Curb Appeal to Your Home Exterior
Your home exterior will provide the first impression for your potential buyers and you won’t get a second chance to make it. If you’re on a budget and can’t afford the landscaping to truly make your home pop, there are some inexpensive fixes you can make. Cutting the grass, removing weeds, displaying some potted plants, and trimming the hedges are great ways to make your home exterior more appealing.
