If you have been thinking about putting your house on the market, then you might be wondering how to boost your equity. With a few simple remodels you can significantly increase the value of your home and attract buyers.
You might not think about your front door as much, but it can do a lot to affect the curb appeal of your house. Giving it a fresh look with a coat of paint can add to the aesthetic of your entire house. Or, if you have a wooden door, then you can replace it with a steel one to upgrade your security. Likewise, garage doors are a feature that is often overlooked but getting a new one installed or repairing your existing one will keep potential home buyers interested.
Kitchen and Bathroom
Most of the time when people think of remodeling a kitchen or bathroom they see a large price tag. But there are small upgrades you can make that won’t break the bank. For example, resurfacing countertops is much less expensive than replacing them, and you can change out cabinet doors or hardware instead of getting new cabinets. Also, getting a plumbing tune-up to make sure that everything is running properly will help prevent small issues from becoming a deal-breaker.
Siding and Veneer
While it is a bit more expensive, you can have your house’s old siding replaced. Not only will this dramatically improve the look of the exterior of your home but it will also ensure that no moisture has leaked in through old siding. Another way to add to the curb appeal is to put a stone veneer around the base of your house. Veneer works the same way as siding but can give your house a more elegant look that mimics a stone foundation. You would be surprised at how this simple addition will make your property look more high dollar.
Decks and Basement
If you want to commit to a larger upgrade, then you can build a deck leading to your backyard. Decks are a big way to attract buyers because it is a feature that is like adding another room. For the same reason, finishing your basement will be an investment with a high return. The best part is that, whether or not you plan to sell your home soon, you can enjoy the benefits of these additions.
