Increasing the value of your home doesn't always require a significant amount of money or time. The benefits are far reaching. A lift in the value of your home can shorten the path to selling your current house so that you can move into a better residence. Of course, it will also improve your equity. These steps can increase your home's value without breaking the bank. Paint can do wonders Apply a new layer of paint to each room at your house. Fresh paint is one of the quickest ways to give your house a face lift and increase the value of your home. Consider going with neutral colors, especially if you plan on selling your house soon. Carpet can improve air quality Installing new carpet or pulling up the existing carpet and going with hardwood floors is another way to enhance your entire house. Not only can new carpet lend your house a more modern look, new carpet can also improve your house's air quality by getting rid of contaminants and allergens. Live mold free Check window edges, the bathroom, basement, kitchen and other areas where water collects for mold. Use a brush to scrub away mold. Make sure that you wear rubber gloves. If mold covers an entire wall or other large spot, contact a professional. You don't want mold spores to spread. Safety counts To increase the value of your home, upgrade exterior and interior doors. Another option is to upgrade your door locks. A safe home is attractive to potential buyers. Concerning safety, make sure that windows in your home have safety locks on them and that they are designed to be opened from the inside instead of the outside. Give the kitchen and bathroom a lot of attention Upgrade bathroom and kitchen faucets. Brown, wood cabinets can also add value to your bathroom or kitchen. If you're looking to save even more money on upgrades, consider hanging a decorative mirror over the bathroom sink and installing a shower spigot that has a massage feature. While you're in the bathroom, lay new tile and add caulking to shower or tub edges. Go for great lighting Replace plain ceiling lights with stylish lights that also operate as ceiling fans. Save money on table lights by purchasing unique lamp shades. While you're thinking about lighting, consider upgrading window treatments. For example, you could hang neutral colored blinds. Other options include cellular shades, roller shades, wood shades, drapes and vertical blinds. Get outside Work with your entire family to clean weeds, leaves and litter out of your front and back yards. Plant flowers at the edges of your house. Also, trim hedges and bushes. If your garage and house need to be washed, grab a hose and wash away dirt and stains. Adding new handrails to the front and back porch steps is another way to increase the current value of your home. Your neighborhood also plays a role in the value of your home. Get involved in community and local government events. Report suspicious persons or activities. Get to know your neighbors and encourage the best in each other.
