Proven Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value


Whether you’re ready to move to a new neighborhood or just want to get a head start on maximizing your investment, increasing the value of your home is always a good thing. Use these recommendations to update your home:

Make Your Home Low-Maintenance

Except for the few buyers that are really looking for a project, most prospective homeowners are looking for a home that is as close to ‘turnkey’ as possible — meaning the home is practically ready for them to move in.

If you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, be sure that any structural updates that need to happen before an inspection get completed. Give your home a good look, make a list of what needs to get done, and get to work!

Make Your Home Efficient

Who doesn’t love a way to help the environment and lower their utility bills? Going-green has been a trending housing update for the past few years, and will surely increase the value of your home. Here are a few updates you can consider making:

  • LED lighting
  • Solar panels
  • Energy-efficient HVAC units
  • Smart thermostats

Make Your Home More Attractive

Increasing the appeal of your home doesn’t stop at the inside — it extends to the outside of your home, too. This means that you should be focused on updating the interior of your home as well as the exterior, which will help you increase your “curb appeal”. This is often the first impression a prospective buyer will have of your home, and you’ll want to make it count.

Here are some updates you may want to consider making:

  • Updating landscaping, roofing, and siding
  • Freshening interior paint
  • Remodeling your kitchen and bathrooms with new appliances
