7 Cheap Ways to Boost Your Home's Value

Looking for ways to improve the value of your home without spending an arm and a leg in the process? Whether you are preparing to list your property on the market or simply wish to spruce up your home for your own personal enjoyment, the following seven strategies can allow you to maximize your home’s value on a reasonable budget.

  1. Kitchen facelift: The kitchen is considered the heart of the home and is often one of the most noticeable features for potential buyers. For just a few hundred dollars, you can replace your kitchen faucet, add decorative handles to your cabinets, and replace old light fixtures with modern, energy-efficient options. If you have a little extra cash to spare, look into having your cabinets resurfaced to give them a like-new look.
  2. Bathroom update: Aside from the kitchen, a home’s bathrooms are usually the most important areas to update. Replacing a toilet seat, installing vinyl flooring, re-grouting worn tile, and installing pedestal sinks are all simple ways to brighten up the appearance of your home’s restroom without spending a ton of money.
  3. Repurposing a den: Have a den or an unused room? In many cases, adding a closet to the room is all you need for it to be considered another bedroom – a feature which can add considerable value to your home. In many cases, a custom closet can be added for less than $2,000.
  4. Improve your storage: Many older homes are plagued with storage problems and a general lack of available closet space. Adding affordable, DIY wire and laminate closet systems to bedrooms, pantries, and even garages can help add function to rooms and make them appear more customized to buyers.
  5. Check your carpeting: The condition of a home’s carpeting is another feature that can greatly contribute to its overall cleanliness. If your carpet has seen better days, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company or covering problem areas with decorative area rugs.
  6. Update your lighting: Installing an eye-catching chandelier or attractive light fixture can help to bring life to an otherwise bland-looking room. Replacing ceiling fan blades with new, clean blades can also be a good option.
  7. Improve your curb appeal: While it may seem obvious, your home’s exterior appearance from the street can leave a lasting impression on a potential buyer. Having a nicely mowed lawn, well-kept shrubs, and a clean walkway to the door can do wonders to create a welcoming aesthetic.
