A much wiser method is to remodel your pieces of property over time through simple, yet effective improvements. We offer you the top 6 time and cost-saving ways to boost your home’s value before you decide to put it on the market.
Repainting the front door
Have you ever asked yourself what’s the first thing a person approaching your house notices? It might not be the most obvious answer but it’s the front door that grabs onlookers’ attention the most. Apart from doing the façade, you can apply a new layer of paint on the front door. Essentially, this can be a DIY that will save you a lot of money because all you need is a can of a tacky color, like yellow, blue or green. You want the front door to stand out from the rest of the house with its design and hue.
A verdant household
Whether it’s the front lawn or the living room sill, flowers and plants of all sorts look outright good. If your house is green throughout, you are sending the message that the whole place is well looked after. Plants require natural light and regular watering to thrive so if they are verdant, people will naturally assume that you’re a good caretaker.If you’re not a green thumb, to ease things up, you can always get one of those houseplants that are easy to look after. You can even create a green corner in the living room, filling it out with potted trees, like a lemon or an orange tree.
A floor to impress
One of the largest surfaces in the house are the floors. If you have hardwood floors then there is bound to be a chip somewhere on its surface. Instead of changing the entire floor, you can simply replace the damaged slab and then polish the whole floor. An even faster solution is to place a carpet or a mat over the problem area to conceal the damage. Of course, you should wash the carpet with some shampoo in order for it to smell nice.
Sprucing up the backyard
Apart from the front yard and boosting curb appeal with a freshly painted front door, you should tend to the backyard as well. Start by cleaning the whole place, including the floor tiles that can be pressure washed. Afterward, think about the features that are a surplus, like parts of the old garden set and declutter the yard. Finally, consider installing a retractable roof system that would allow you to spend more time on the deck of the house.
The bathroom: The single most important room
As far as the bathroom is concerned, a little bit of cleaning should do the trick. Wall tiles and the space between are generally the dirtiest surfaces in the room where you shower. In some cases even mold can appear, so you need to scrub hard. You should replace the grout and the caulk that is damaged beyond repair and wash the rest of the bathroom walls.If you wish to redecorate the bathroom, they buy a new shower curtain as they are usually cost a couple of dollars but can change the atmosphere of the entire bathroom because of their size. Don’t think that prospective buyers will skip the bathroom when viewing the house. In fact, the water room is at the top of their list!
An extra room for extra space
One thing that people know to appreciate in a home is space and a lot of it. You can never have extra space so an additional room protruding over the garage is a home improvement to top them all, quite literally. This room doesn’t have to be large in size and its walls don’t have to make from the same material as the rest of the house. Just make sure you match the color of the façade exactly. This space is ideal for a nursery or a guest room.There are countless ways to boost your home’s value prior to selling it. We have listed only 6 but if you execute them properly, you can expect your pieces of real estate to fetch a bigger price in the end. The best thing about these improvements is that their final value will exceed the cost of the initial investment.
