Increasing Your Home’s Value the Most for the Least
This tip will help increase your home’s value and
get your home sold in the fastest time possible based on my
experience working with home owners who have sold their
home and feedback from home buyers that buy homes. The last
two tips will be most appropriate if you are thinking you might
sell your home within the next 1-2 years.
Painting and Carpeting
A fresh coat of paint will make a room look new and clean and new carpets will make it shine that
much more. Be sure to pick a paint color that is neutral as that will appeal to the most people. I have
seen many buyers walk into a home with rooms painted the seller’s favorite color and just walk out
because they hated it! Buyers also will always look down at the floor when they walk into a room. So
be sure that the carpets are clean, and if they are worn, consider getting them replaced. Worn or dirty
carpets and badly painted or dirty walls will make a buyer think that there are other issues with your
home even if there is not.
