Looking to sell your home soon? Before listing your property on the market, we strongly advise doing everything you can to improve the resale value of your house.
In this article, we will talk about a few ways you can do that without having to spend a fortune to make a fortune.
1) Dress your windows properly
One of the easiest ways to improve the resale value of your house is to update your window treatments.
From luxurious curtains and drapes, to sleek and modern shutters or shades, there are plenty of stylish new models that will replace the tired ones that have hung around your windows since the 1970’s.
Window treatments can help you completely transform the interior design of your house, which will enable you to get significantly higher offers from buyers.
2) Give your walls a new paint job
Changing the color scheme on your walls is another low-cost fix for those that are seeking to increase the appraised value of their home.
Whether you choose to add some life to your walls by painting over the boring white that has dominated your living room for decades, or toning down a recklessly bold experiment that has worn out its welcome, you can get your house more in tune with what buyers are looking for.
All you have to do is buy a few cans of paint at your local home center and spend an entire weekend transforming your interior living spaces. Don’t forget to get some painter’s tape to protect your baseboards from drippings!
3) Up your landscaping game
While shoring up the appearance of your home’s interior is important to getting a superior real estate appraisal, many experts consider the appearance of your exterior to be more important.
Considering that your lawn is the first thing that people see when they pull up to your curb, it is not hard to understand why.
As such, it is vital to do everything that you can to improve the appearance of the front of your property if you want to get a better price for it.
This means learning more about proper lawn care, getting into gardening (flowers do a lot to improve first impressions), and installing tasteful centerpieces such as decorative rocks.
