Spring is often characterized as a time of rebirth, renewal, and revival. Why not utilize this philosophy by giving your house a makeover? Increasing your home’s value will have various benefits, both long and short-term. For right now, it will give your home a fresh new look and when you eventually sell your home, it will increase in value, putting more money in your pocket. Here are a few projects you can use to boost your home’s value.
1. Paint the Exterior
Spring is the perfect season to take on a painting project. Wait for the April showers to end, and then begin painting your home’s exterior. Adding a fresh coat of paint can revive even the oldest of homes.
First, decide whether you want to keep your home’s exterior color as it is or replace it with a more modern color. Whatever you choose, painting the outside of your house is an update that can boost not only your home’s value, but its curb appeal as well!
2. Deck Addition or Remodel
Outdoor living spaces are on the rise and are becoming more and more appealing to prospective buyers. Most of the appeal lies in the fact that decks add a new place to entertain guests and relax. They are great for barbecues and can dramatically transform any backyard by adding practicality and design. While the cold and wet winter weather was not ideal for reviving your deck, spring is the perfect time to plan your remodel!
3. Replace Your Home’s Siding
When searching for a new house, one of the most important factors is curb appeal. Ask yourself how welcoming your home looks from the outside. If the answer is, “Not very welcoming,” you may want to change that before putting your home on the market. You can begin by upgrading the siding, especially in older homes.
4. Bathroom/Kitchen Remodel
The two rooms that benefit the most when it comes to upgrades are the kitchen and bathroom. Plan to upgrade kitchen appliances with more modern models or new countertops. In the bathroom, something as simple as replacing wallpaper or an old lighting fixture will go a long way.
