What are some things you can do to add value to your house?

I want to sell my house in about 6 months?


Answer by  ljb (159)

Updated bathrooms and kitchens add the most value to a home and will retrieve the biggest return on investment. Other things that can be done to help the house sell quickly are new paint and new carpet or refinished floors.

Upgraded kitchens and bathrooms can increase the value of your home. Most improvements can be done inexpensively. You can paint walls, install new tile and counter tops, and update appliances.

Most improvements will add some value to your home, though you want to make sure their cost does not exceed this value. Easy options are landscaping the front and backyards in a pleasant manner, addition of under cabinet lighting in the kitchen, putting in wood flooring, installing new energy-efficient windows, new counter-tops, leaving appliances such as the refrigerator, etc.

Spruce the place up so that it looks loved and cared for. Clean, uncluttered rooms and grounds offer good value for little cost. Pack away a lot of the personal things and stage your rooms...less is better. Major repairs only give a partial return of the costs.

In terms of selling, clean, refresh, clean, de-clutter, clean, get new paint and new flooring throughout, and put the house in neutral. Pick up a copy of "Dress Your House for Success" by Martha Webb. If you're want to do major renovations, bathroom and kitchen updates/remodels have the greatest return on investment.

Repair anything broken - no damage should be visible anywhere. Clean it thoroughly. There should be no stains or marks visible. A fresh coat of paint often covers all marks.

You can always add value to your home by renovating and updating. A new paint job will also help some. Make improvements to the bathroom and kitchen.

One of the best things to do is paint the rooms. Also, view the yard around your house as if you were buying it. What do you think would help the outside appearance? Then do that if possible. Just do anything to freshen up the look, inside and out.


Answer by  foodie213 (301)

Cheap and easy cosmetic upgrades include things like fresh paint in neutral colors, shampooing carpets (or replacing them if they are completely worn down), and making an effort to upgrade bathroom and kitchen space (replacing a toilet and sink vanity is very easy, as is painting cabinets or changing out hardware).


Answer by  Devin98 (487)

I suggest going through your home and fix any small things like outlet covers, paint, or small holes in walls first. Kitchens and bathrooms sell your home so make sure they are in tip-top shape. Most importantly de-clutter and clean it thoroughly before listing it for sale.
