Super Cheap Fixes That Will Boost the Value of Your Family Home

When the time does come for you to sell your home, you will have a lot of things to think about. After all, you will have to think about how you are going to make a profit and you will also have to think about how you are going to get everything done on time as well. The problem is that most people don’t actually get the full amount that they are looking for when selling their property, but this can easily be changed by simply doing a few simple fixes.

The Kitchen

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and that couldn’t be more true. Home buyers will be looking at your kitchen when they decide whether or not your home is the right one for them., it helps to make your kitchen looks remotely updated. For this reason, you need to consider replacing the faucet and even the door handles as well. It also helps to replace your lighting fixtures, and this is actually something that you can do yourself. This will only cost you a couple of hundred at the absolute maximum, but did you know that it could help to add thousands to the value of your home?

Your Appliances

The next thing that you’ll want to do is make sure that everything matches in. If your appliances don’t match or if you need to replace your doors and even face panels then consider doing this. When it comes to your dishwasher, you’ll find that a lot of panels are actually reversible. For example, if you have a dishwasher that is black, there is a high chance that the other side is white, and vice versa. If you have a white kitchen but your dishwasher is black, this is a brilliant way to change things around without having to spend anything. If you can’t do this then it does help to match your kitchen in as much as possible, even if that means picking up a new kettle on your way home from work. Your movers can help you to take all of this with you as well, so it helps to keep that in mind when you’re trying to find movers to look at as it can make all the difference.

The Bathroom

The bathroom is the next biggest area that people look at when they view a home. A new toilet seat and a new sink can make all of the difference and if you have a very old and discolored bathroom then you should think about updating this as well. This will cost you a bit more when compared to the other areas of your home but if you have a run-down bathroom then you will soon find that the whole value of your property drops. A new bathroom can be done on a budget still, however, as paint doesn’t cost much and a good old clean can go a long way. It may even be worth hiring a cleaning service to take care of this for you, so you can sit back and take care of the more important aspects of your home.

    […] But while any kitchen can be a place where wonderful memories are made, it doesn’t take much for a kitchen to begin to show signs of wear and tear. Over the years, countertops may get water damaged, chipped, scratched or gouged by wayward knives. Flooring may be forever stained by a spill that just won’t scrub out no matter how hard you try. Drawers and cupboard doors can start to look forlorn as varnish fades or paint chips and peels. All of this can conspire to make our kitchens look old and worn (and not in the deliberate shabby chic kind of way). With spring in the air comes a feeling of energy, motivation and a lust for renewal. As such, many people will be considering a renovation in the kitchen. Not only can this enhance the time we spend in the kitchen it can significantly increase the value of our homes. […]
