In today’s economy it is hard to come up with ways to make your home more valuable. It seems like no matter what you do the housing market is struggling and the value of your home is struggling right along with it. There are, however, steps that you can take to improve your home’s future value. I mean, the residential real estate market can’t be this bad for much longer…right? Right?
The first thing you can do is make sure that your yard is beautifully landscaped. That is your home’s first impression. Make sure bushes are cut back and trees are pruned so they do not obstruct any views of the house. Mow your lawn frequently and fertilize for a beautiful and lush landscape.
It is said that people make their decision when buying a home in the first seven seconds after entering. That being said your front door is an important piece to the value of your home. A working doorbell and an awning over your front porch can really help you raise your home’s value.
Inside the house one of, if not the most, important item is lighting. Remember that if you use soft lighting in empty spaces it will bring a warmth to the area while bulbs with a higher wattage will make small spaces feel much larger.
When thinking about what room in your house is the most important room to update, the answer is the kitchen. There are many tips you can find online to updating your kitchen.
Other things to consider are your heating and air conditioning systems as well as your roof. Updating these can make a big difference.
So get to work because when residential real estate comes back around it will all be worth it in the end. If you need assistance in getting your home ready to sell call Cary Real Estate Experts for professional help.
