Your home is your probably your biggest financial asset and periodically its a good idea to check in to make sure you are maximizing your home’s value. From necessary repair improvements to tiny tweaks that can make a huge impact here are our 5 top quick and easy projects you can have completed by Sunday to increase your home’s value and appeal!
Maximize Closet Space
Today’s buyers crave storage space. That doesn’t mean run out and invest in custom closet solutions though (what works for one person may not work for another). Try adding shelves to maximize vertical space or adding smaller organizers to maximize the space you already have. Also, if you haven’t swapped out that rickety hanging bar maybe it’s time to find a fresh new one!
Upgrade Your Door Handles
If you are still rocking the 80’s brass knobs or haven’t touched a piece of hardware since the 90’s then maybe its time to give your doors a quick makeover. Integrating new doorknobs, handles, & pulls can help to create a well-designed look for your home. Polished nickel or bronze can add a trendy, re-freshed feel.
Add Or Upgrade Outdoor Lighting
Nobody wants a heavy duty landscaping project once the temperatures start soaring (and the heat can be detrimental to new plants or grass) but some well placed “hard-scaping” items can make a big difference. Try a few solar lights lighting a path or (our new favorite) hang string lights over a deck or patio to create an inviting space that you can enjoy all summer long.
Add Smart Lights
With rapid advancements in technology adding smart lights to your home is easier than ever. With kits like the Philips Hue Starter kit making your home smarter and energy efficient is a snap (and many of the different kits work with Alxea, Siri, and/or Google Home – be sure to read each kit to determine which one works best for you). It doesn’t have to stop at lights either! There’s a multitude of options for integrating technology into your home easily and effectively (and almost 2/3 of buyers would pay a premium for smart home technology according to ADT).
The most effective way to add value to your home is the old stand by, paint. Changing the color scheme of your home to a neutral palette can help your space feel bigger and brighter. Neutral tones can also help cover small scratches and imperfections in the wall while creating a blank slate. Feeling more adventurous? Check out some of the top color schemes of 2019 and maybe try something a little crazy!
