Easy Ways to Add Home Value

 

Home improvement is on the forefront of every homeowner’s mind. But what are the best ways to get the most bang for your buck? You don’t have to break the bank to add home value. Here are a few ways that you can improve the value of your home without spending a lot of money.

Let There Be Light

Add Value to Your HomeHomes that are dark, feel smaller and more cramped. An easy way to lighten up your home is to knock down walls or to add windows onto your home. By lightening up rooms and opening up living areas, you can create the illusion of more space. Additionally, taking down walls can also serve to improve the layout of a home. Other simple ways to create the illusion of space is by widening door frames or vaulting your ceilings.

Dedicate Space for a Home Office

Nowadays more and more people are working from home. Offering a dedicated space for a home office is a quick and simple way to increase its value in the eyes of home buyers. Not selling? Well a home office offers many tax advantages for you if you decide to use it for your home. You also add value by not having to commute!

Add Home Value By Adding a Coat

Paint is one of the least expensive ways to freshen up your home and add immediate value. Not only does a fresh coat of paint make everything look new again, but it can also transform the feel of your home. If you don’t have an eye for color, consider hiring a professional. The small expense can really pay off big.

Just by doing these few simple tasks, homeowners can see an immediate and substantial improvement in their home. If you’re selling this can equate to a significant increase in your asking price. If you’re not selling, the added value in the enjoyment of your home can pay off until it does come time to list your home for sale.
