Whether you are thinking about selling your house now or years from now, here are a few things to keep in mind to add value to your home and to ensure your home will be market ready when you are.
Curb Appeal – Add value to your home by keeping the landscaping groomed. Prune shrubs, mulch garden beds and keep your lawn groomed. Also, the look of your roof plays a big part in the curb appeal of your home, so make sure you inspect the condition of your roof.
Care & Maintenance – Regularly keeping up with home repairs and maintenance can increase your home’s value when it’s time to sell. Replace those leaky gutters and windows, have your septic and furnace inspected, and insulate your attic. Potential buyers will be grateful for a home that doesn’t come with a list of repairs.
Paint – Fresh paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to add value to your home. Revive your home’s exterior siding, trim, shed and decks and touch up interior walls and trim. It’s best to stick with neutral colors to get more of a mass appeal.
Staying on top of home maintenance is a must to help your home keep its value. See more helpful homeowner tips on our Pinterest page.
