Selling Your Home? Increase the Value!

Sometimes things don’t turn out quite the way we plan them to be. For instance, a “forever home” may not be quite as forever as you might think. Things can change, which means you may have to sell your home to make room those changes. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to make moving out of your home a pleasant experience, rather than a bad one. Much of the hesitation that comes from selling your home is whether you will be able to get a return on it. Many times, a homeowner can live in a house for years and not get back the amount of money they originally paid for the property.

In this blog, we will discuss some of the ways that you can improve the value of your home as a way to increase its selling price. That way, you will be able to part ways with your home in a most pleasant way.

Remodel Your Bathroom

New home buyers love to walk into a home with a nice new bathroom; something about the way a newly renovated bathroom makes the whole house look fresh and unique attracts them. If you would like to sell your home quickly, and for much more money, investing in renovation projects is a must. And, your renovation project doesn’t even have to be that big — they can be as small as re-tiling your bathroom or adding new features to the existing room. Any amount of money that you input into your home will offer a return. If your home is more presentable, you will be able to ask for more money from a prospective buyer.


Landscaping is a must. Even if you have a truly gorgeous home interior, if the exterior leaves something to be desired, buyers won’t offer that much money for your home. Landscaping your home can be as easy as replacing your run-down fence with a nicer, newer one. Also, if you plant beautiful flowers and place decorative rocks around your property, your front and back yards will be much more interesting and adopt a brand new aesthetic. You can either do the landscaping yourself to save money, or you can save time by hiring a professional landscaper — either way, your front and backyards are improved and your selling price can be raised.

Custom Deck

One of the best and easiest ways to increase the value of your home is by adding extra features to your home. Most American homeowners like to include decks or patios to their properties in order to increase the value if their home. It was found in 2007, that custom decks yielded the best return on investment for homeowners. Today, this is still true. Homeowners that install 16-by-20-foot wood desks are able to regain 85.4 percent of the cost of initial project. With just one installation of a deck, a patio, or a pergola, your home’s value could increase by more than $8,000 dollars. Even if you aren’t selling your home, a deck is a great way to increase the value of your home and make your backyard a more comfortable space.
