There are so many opportunities to update your home and increase its value. This can range from low-cost renovations such as a fresh coat of paint on your front door, to higher-cost renovations like installing new hardwood floors. Here are some of the different ways to increase your home value:

Think Green

Making your home more green can be simple: you can install energy-efficient bulbs, low energy appliances, smart AC’s, solar panels and more. One of the cheapest ways to make your home more energy efficient is by installing a smart shower head and sink faucets – doing this can greatly reduce your water usage.

Paint Your Front Door and Shutters

What’s the first thing people look at when they come to your home? The front of your house! Painting your door and shutters is such a simple, low cost way to increase your home value. This can be done by adding a fresh coat of paint to your door and shutters, and updating your door handle to a fresher, cleaner one.

Freshen the Curb Appeal

Again, the outside of your home is the first thing potential buyers will be looking at. If you have a driveway or sidewalk, make sure it is clean and free of cracks. If you have bushes, trees or flowers in your yard, make sure those are all trimmed and free of weeds. You can even freshen up your mailbox by giving it a fresh coat of paint.

Update Your Flooring

Freshly refinished or sanded hardwood floor can make such a huge difference in a home’s value. They also hold on to less dirt and debris, making it the ideal flooring choice for those with allergies. Hardwood floors can also last a lifetime, which tends to attract buyers to spend extra on a home.
