8 Ways to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value on a Budget

8 Ways to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value on a Budget

Are you looking for ways to spruce up the look of your home without breaking the bank? If you’re trying to sell your house, these easy and inexpensive fixes will help greatly increase its resale value.

  • Start with a deep clean. Scrub appliances and cabinets in the kitchen, as well as your tub, shower, and sinks in the bathroom. Steam clean your carpets or consider refinishing hardwood floors to make them look like new.
  • Freshen up the paint in rooms that need it. Stick to neutral colors that allow potential homebuyers to envision themselves in the space without having to look past crazy colors they might worry about having to cover up.
  • Spruce up bathroom tiles with new grout, or clean/stain the existing grout. Dingy, dirty tile grout makes a bathroom look dated and unkempt. Sometimes it’s best to replace them entirely, which will pay for itself in the new vibe it gives your bathroom!
  • Adding a backsplash to your kitchen is an easy and affordable way to give it an instant facelift.
  • Make your cabinets look new with a fresh coat of paint to hide any scratches or dings, and replace old hardware with something new and updated.

  • Make the most of your storage space! Add inexpensive shelving and other storage options to closets to increase storage space and add value to your home.
  • Never underestimate the value of good curb appeal. Make sure your lawn is mowed, and clear away any weeds or overgrown areas. Add shrubs and mulch, or even flowers if you have a green thumb.
  • Rent or hire a power washer to give your house, sidewalk, and deck a thorough cleaning.

Final Tips:

  • If you do have some extra padding in your home renovation budget, keep in mind that the kitchen is the biggest selling point of your home. A kitchen remodel could significantly increase the resale value of your home (or you may just want to keep it!).
  • Turn a den or office into an extra bedroom by simply adding a closet. The cost is relatively cheap, but additional bedrooms will add more resale value.
  • Space economy is one of the biggest concerns for home buyers. Find ways to declutter your home before a realtor starts showing it to potential buyers, and increase storage capacity wherever possible.
