3 Projects to Improve Your Home's Value
1. Get Rid of Clutter
Basic de-cluttering is the most important step toward preparing your home for the market. What may seem to you like tasteful ornamentation can be distracting to potential homebuyers. Take a few hours to go around your house and minimize the clutter–what accentuates your home's features, and what detracts from them? Sometimes it helps to bring in a neutral third-party to help you rid your house of excess clutter.
2. Freshen Up Your Paint
A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in increasing the appeal of your home to potential buyers. Set aside a weekend where you can patch holes and repaint walls if necessary, especially in key rooms like the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. Stick with neutral colors that will appeal to as many people as possible.
3. Clean Up Your Basement
Adding livable space to your home is a surefire way to increase its value, and one of the easiest ways to do this is by cleaning and organizing your basement. Start by clearing and sweeping the floor, and create a neat and organized storage system. Then, put in some furniture and decorations. You can go the extra mile and completely finish the space, though this is of course a more costly investment.
