Three Things that Can Boost The Value of Your Home Immediately

Three Things that Can Boost The Value of Your Home Immediately

At Doorsteps, we’ve rarely seen a home seller who didn’t want to boost the property value as quickly as possible. As a seller, you want to get as much as you can for your home, particularly if you’ve put a lot of sweat equity and money into it over the years. If you’re still not quite hitting the valuation you want, these three steps may be able to create a big boost in your selling price.

Create More Living Space

Have unused space that just doesn’t seem helpful currently? Turning it into living space may be able to increase the price of your home. If a little work in the attic means a granny flat for the mother-in-law or a quick remodel may mean the ability to add a flex room like a playroom or a home office, you’re going to have an add-on the buyer will love. Before you embark on any big remodel projects, though, do some research to make sure you have a project where you’ll see a real return on your investment.

Lower Your Energy Costs

It seems virtually everyone is trying to be a bit greener these days, and lower energy costs can move your home from an energy hogging beast to an eco-friendly spot buyers will love. There are several ways to do this from replacing old windows with more energy-efficient versions to ensuring all of your appliances are rated well for energy consumption. Simple steps like adding rain barrels in the garden and LED bulbs throughout your home can help too.

Build Curb Appeal

Many buyers make their decision about your home before they ever even walk through that door. If you haven’t brushed up on your curb appeal, lately, there’s never a better time to do it like that before you sell your home. If there are things like fences that need to be mended or trimming to do, you should absolutely take care of it. If you can plant flowering annuals before you sell, that’s an attraction, too. Small landscaping projects can help as well. Simple steps like these could bump your selling price up as much as three to five percent in the long run.
