Increasing a home value can cost thousands of dollars, or in contrary, we can do it on budget as well. If we are intended to sell the house, we want to be as minimal as possible on this. Here are several useful tips to do it.
#1. Do Basic Cleaning
Cleanliness is the first aspect seen. A clean house gives you better price setting with realtor. This will be great if applied on regular daily basis so the house is bright every day.
#2. Say No to Clutter
We need to get rid off of anything that make the house looks like disaster. Clean decaying things, papers, battered furniture, and all junky and unnecessary items. At least, hide it for a while.
#3. Do Deep Clean
We do not talk about dusting, sweeping, and mopping. Focus on areas we rarely touch like blinds, carpets, windows, and walls. Clean and wash them, and do not let any dirt or stain remains.
#4. Make It Smells Nice
If our noses are not objective enough, ask some friends. Use interior perfume, or bake something like cookies to make the house smells nice. It increases the atmosphere quality.
#5. Tidy Up the Yard
Clean the weeds and let us trim the hedges. If we do not have so much to tidy up there, let us buy some shrubs and flower beds.
#6. New Coat for the Paint
Do it in proper direction. Use primer and sand it. Then apply the coat and sand it. Pick white for ceiling is best and do not forget to choose the right finish.
#7. Wear Fresh Blind and Curtain
The old ones may already have faded colours. In order to make better impression, we should wear the fresh one that is clean and has perfect colours too.
#8. Modern Switch
This can be a small detail. However, modern switch and outlet cover look so nice. It makes the house has the impression of newly improved.
#9. Get Brighter
Get some new lights especially for several main rooms. The new lights should be brighter, maybe a wattage higher. Bright rooms are very inviting. Make sure we have enough power supply for it.
#10. Wood Trim
This is the most common upgrade on new home we must have. The best colour will be highly gloss white on neutral walls. It gives just the most comfortable yet modern touch.
Since several of the tips may take time to show result, it will be best for us to start early on this and keep it well maintained. They are not complicated or expensive, but proven effective for improving a home value.
