There usually comes a time in your home owning career where you start to think about selling your home to a new, proud owner. When the time comes, you may be thinking of ways to increase your home’s value to get a better price when the deal is done. While many of these upgrades cost an arm and a leg or take too long, there are budget-friendly ways to increase your home’s resale value:
- Doors and Windows. A home with old doors and windows is a home that is potentially letting in extra air. Redoing your exterior doors and windows can not only save you money on heating during the winters, it significantly increases the value of your home with improved appearance.
- Space. If at all possible without tacking on an entire home extension, try to increase the interior space of your home. This could either mean decluttering, finishing a granny flat you’ve been putting off, or adding a nice patio in the back garden.
- Plumbing. Hire a professional plumber to ensure all plumbing is up to date and leak free, as well as to update some of the plumbing fixtures for a more appealing, modern appearance.
- Paint. A lick of paint does absolute wonders for the look and value of a home. The best part? This modernizing step comes with a lower cost than most home upgrades. Paint is not just for walls, though! Instead of doing a full kitchen or bathroom makeover, consider sanding down the old cabinets and giving them a fresh coat of paint for a while new look.
