Read this article and learn about 5 easy ways you can increase the value of your property by $$$$$$

Do you believe increasing your house value is a task that’s going to require lots of investment and effort?

Get your home sold fast with some quick clean up tips.

You know, just paying a bit of attention to the interiors and exteriors of your house can change the game for you ALTOGETHER…

‘Optics’ is what we’re talking about here…

The ONE thing that takes your house’s value down is hard-on-the-eye optics. 

In simple words scars of negligence!

While just the opposite – pleasant and well-maintained houses – work as treat for the eyes and their value goes up like anything, fingers crossed.

That’s because people love to look at them and when they love to look at them they’ll want to live in them.

Makes sense?

Now, let’s take a look at SIX easy upgrades that you can make to your home to make its value go up!

  1. Clean up those walls! These are the bones of the house, right? Dirty walls with fading paint and scratches will never impress anyone. If short on time at least hose down the outside walls.

2) Get the Blatant Repairs Done

Is your home shouting, ‘I need repairs’? They will stand out more than the beauty.

One thing that prospective homebuyers will look out for is the repairs required in your house.

Which makes it safe to assume that the more repairs your house needs the less is going to be its value, fair enough?

So, get down to fixing your house. Finish the repair works which keep your house’s value down. Go through each room and make a list. Possibly redo light switch covers, replace old fan, check marks that can be easily wiped down, oil woods.

Spend a bit on the repairs before you can expect a rise in the property value!

3) Upgrade the Windows 

Now this is tricky because in some areas – you need a Permit to replace the windows. Check with your area first.

Clean windows, clean screen and make sure no rips or holes in any of the screens

People are really controlled by their sensory perceptions mostly, so it’s important that you make your house the best sensory experience possible.

Now, windows play an important part there (No not the Microsoft Windows…)

So, if your house windows have got cheap plastic blinds, aluminum ones or paper shades just get rid of them, they take away so much of the value…

Instead, consider putting up wood or plantation shutters or decent drapery.

Also, make sure the windows allow enough sunlight in your rooms because houses deprived of sunlight give many visitors a very pathetic, draining feel. 

4) Boost Your Bathrooms and Kitchen

According to the cost vs. value report remodeling your bathrooms will recoup about 87% to 94% of your investment.

Which means you should go about giving your bathrooms a fresher look.

So what improvements can you make?

First of all, consider re-grouting the floor, then you could repaint the walls and replace the old, outdated fixtures with newer, more fashionable ones.

Like for around $40 to $100 you can get a new sink faucet, or spending just $80 you can install a spa-style luxury shower head.

As for the kitchen, a report from Remodeling Magazine says you can expect to gain back about 62 to 81 percent on your kitchen investment.

But, there’s no need to go crazy over the renovation…

Little improvements like repainting the cabinets, replacing old fixtures with their modern versions, and installing energy-efficient options can easily boost the appearance of your kitchen!

5) Give Your Home a Homey Look

That should be a no-brainer!

Anyone coming to see your house on a showing will only feel good about it when your house has the ‘home’ feeling to it. 

If your house is messy, the yard unkempt and the cellar looking like a ghost house most buyers won’t think twice before walking away!

So, if you’re looking to sell your house for a higher value make sure your house looks like a home.

A sweet, cozy home that the buyer would WANT to spend their life in!

6) Check the Smells in Each Room. Open windows, wipe down all horizontal surfaces, and use some vinegar to remove stinks.

Home Sweet Home…

In the end, it’s still your home anyway, and it’s up to you what type of home improvements you’re interested in going for…

But, if you intend to sell your house down the road make sure the remodeling pays off on the sale.

BECAUSE not every remodel will increase your house value, you know.
