Grey Kitchen Update (1600 × 900 px)

Owning a home is a financial decision that can pay rewards as you build up equity and see your property value increase over time. Whether you simply want to continue to grow the value of your home investment, or you’re planning to sell in the near future there are steps you can take to increase the value of your home. You can work on small upgrades, all the way up to large renovations on your home.

Are you thinking about selling your home in the near future? What can you do to increase the value of you property before you put it on the market? Here are five ideas to help you get started.

Here Are Some Ideas To Get You Started!

There are several home improvements big and small that can increase the value of your property. Here are a few examples:

  1. Kitchen Remodeling: The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, and a modern, updated kitchen can increase your home’s value significantly. You can also just upgrade appliances, replace countertops and cabinets, or add new lighting fixtures to give your kitchen a fresh and modern look.

  2. Bathroom Upgrades: An updated bathroom can be a major selling point for potential buyers. Consider replacing old fixtures, adding new tile or flooring, or upgrading your shower or tub.

  3. Landscaping: A well-maintained yard can add curb appeal to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. Consider adding new plants, flowers, or trees. Maybe creating a new outdoor living space like a patio or deck.

  4. Energy-efficient Upgrades: With rising energy costs, many buyers are looking for homes that are energy-efficient. Upgrading your home’s insulation, replacing old windows with energy-efficient ones, or installing a smart thermostat can make your home more attractive to buyers.

  5. Paint: A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home’s appearance. Consider painting your home’s exterior or interior to give it a fresh, updated look.

Remember that home improvements can be expensive, so it’s important to weigh the potential increase in value against the cost of the improvement. You should also consider the local market and the types of upgrades that are most popular in your area.

There are budget-friendly tricks to beautify and update your home, you can push that potential sales price—and your earnings potential—to its upper limit.

What Have We Done to Increase the Value Of Our Home?

-We had all of our walls painted to give it a fresh update.

-The kitchen cabinets were painted white because they were the original cabinets and they had better days. 

-We have been updating our interior/exterior light fixtures and the ceiling fans.

-This summer, we are going to replace the grass with native grass, and add some rocks and gravel. It will cut down on water usage and when we go to sell in the future, it may be a selling point. We live in the Colorado Springs area which is considered a high desert, so there are restrictions on watering lawns.

-We will be updating our bathrooms in the next few years.
