Home Remodeling | 5 Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home
Home Remodeling | If you are thinking of selling your home — or if you just want it to be worth more while you live in it — increasing the value of your home is easier than many homeowners think.
It’s not just major improvements that will increase how much your home is worth. Any type of improvement, small or large, generally will improve your home’s value.
Here, then, are five simple ways to increase the value of your home:
1. Plan a Remodeling Project
A general contractor can help you plan a major or minor remodeling of your home. You can focus on a single room — such as a bathroom or kitchen — or plan a major remodeling of your home’s interior, exterior or both.
Your general contractor can tell you what’s possible, as well as how much it will cost. Often, the investment you make in remodeling can be recovered when it’s time to sell your home.
2. Look for Small Upgrades
Smaller upgrades — such as redecorating or replacing plumbing fixtures, doorknobs or ceiling fans — are a faster, more affordable way to increase your home’s value.
3. Give Your Home a Thorough Cleaning
Did you know that simply cleaning out all the clutter in your home can instantly increase its value? Throw away all that junk you’ve been saving up for years or store it in a storage facility.
Then give your carpets, walls and ceiling a thorough cleaning. Painting also will help make your house be worth more.
4. Think Curb Appeal
What do people see first when they pull up in front of your home? Usually, it’s the landscaping.
Invest a little money in upgrading your landscaping and repairing your lawn and you will instantly make your home look more valuable.
5. Upgrade the Kitchen First
If you are going to remodel only one room in your house, most general contractors will tell you that you will get the most bang for your buck from the kitchen. New appliances, new cabinets and a ceiling to floor overhaul in the kitchen will pull up the value of the rest of your home. – Build and Rehab
