Improve The Value Of Your Home Fast!

Whether you want to improve the value of your home because you plan on selling, or because you just want to increase the value just in case, these tips are perfect for you. There are so many things you can do to improve the value of your home, and not all of them need to take an age or cost a fortune. Try them and see!

Make Improvements To The Kitchen/Bathroom

The kitchen and the bathroom are the two most important rooms in the house. They get used the most, and therefore can add a lot of value to your home. If you want to add value to your home fast, the best thing you can do is make improvements to the kitchen and bathroom. Some people go as far as having completely new bathrooms and kitchens installed, but if you’re doing it properly, that’ll take a lot of time and money. It will be much quicker if you make improvements yourself. You can do things like fresh grouting, coats of paint, fixtures, and even appliances. You don’t need to redo the entire room to get more money for your home.

Make Repairs

Are there any repairs around your home that you could fix to get more money? Even the tiniest issue could knock money off the value of your home. Make sure there are no draughts, broken tiles, holes, leaks, etc. You can usually make lots of these repairs yourself, but in some cases it’s better to hire a pro if you’re unsure of what to do. If you risk it, you could end up spending more money!

Get Rid Of/Avoid Things That Lower The Value

Take a look and see if there’s anything around your home that could be lowering the value of your home. This can be simple things, like pink wallpaper in the living room and pictures of your family. Values of houses shoot up when buyers are free to do what they like with them, and envision how they want it to look themselves. With somebody else’s tastes all over the house, it can be hard to picture and it even puts some people off subconsciously. Make sure you don’t have anything that can seriously lower the value of your home either, such as a pool. Many people think that pools add luxury to a home, and while they can, people don’t want the hassle most of the time.

Make The Most Of Your Curb Appeal

The curb appeal is how appealing your home looks from the outside and first impressions. This means improving windows, doors, your garden - anything that will give people an instant impression of your home. Even how clean your car is can contribute to the value. Any good property management service will give you tips like this.

Bake Cookies

That’s right - baking cookies will make your home smell delicious and therefore increase the value. It’s a sneaky way to do it, but it automatically makes a viewer feel good things towards your home.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
