Last year, we wrote a blog titled “6 Ways to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value.” Since there are many ways to increase the value of your home and appeal to potential buyers, we thought we would share a few more ways you can do so:
Match Your Appliances
If your kitchen appliances are only a few years old but don’t match each other, consider giving them a facelift by replacing their doors or face panels. The kitchen is one of the biggest selling points in a home, and having appliances that match can give your kitchen a clean, elegant look.
Add More Storage
You can never have too much storage, and most potential home buyers would agree. If your home lacks open areas for storage, try adding a closet system to your bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and/or entrance. You’ll not only appeal to buyers, but you’ll also be able to use them while you’re still living there.
Replace Your Siding
When it comes to adding value to your home, curb appeal is very important. If your home’s siding is worn, damaged, or faded, it can make your home look drab and unappealing. Get rid of your old siding and replace it with newer Delaware siding for better curb appeal. You can even take the opportunity to update your home’s color and change its look, if it needs refreshing.
Update Your Roof
If your home’s roofing system is more than 30 years old, you may want to consider updating it. Having a roof that needs replaced can easily shy away a potential buyer – they may see it as a project they’ll have to take on. Having a brand new roof, however, can be a great selling point and add value to your home.
Curb appeal applies to not only the actual structure of your home but also the areas around it. To make a good impression on visitors, you should have a well-maintenanced lawn with clean landscaping. If landscaping isn’t your strength, hire a professional who will take into account your home’s style, color, and yard shape to create an attractive facade.
Upgrade Your HVAC System
Just like your roofing system, your HVAC system should be up to date as well as productive. If your system is more than 15 years old, consider replacing it with a newer, energy efficient model. It will not only add value to your home, but an HVAC upgrade will also appeal to your potential buyers.
