WHERE TO UPDATE YOUR HOME TO INCREASE HOME VALUE
Sometimes people have the funds to update their home before they sell it, in order to increase the overall value.
The question usually asked is, "How much money should I put into my renovation and where should I spend it?"
The SINGULAR room in your home that will get you the most bang for your buck is the KITCHEN.
No matter what your budget or home goals, there's one simple and cost-effective update that can get you the most money when you sell: updating your kitchen. Whether it's a total gut job or just adding some more efficient appliances, kitchens are consistently one of the biggest sellers in any real estate market. Here are some ways you can update your kitchen - from the full remodel to less expensive options in updating a kitchen.
A new kitchen and bathroom are big ticket items, but they're also some of the most valuable improvements you can make to your home. From replacing appliances to new cabinets, adding granite countertops, and installing a backsplash, these updates have a long-lasting effect on your home value.
If you're looking to sell your home for top dollar, you should consider replacing outdated countertops. Replacing outdated countertops will make a huge difference in your house's resale value.
Picking a fresh color or painting a room is one of the easiest ways to make a home feel like it has new life. When you paint, your walls may look new and bright again, and even your old furniture can look modern with a coat of paint on it. Choosing paint colors that are popular for houses in your area will help you get more money when you sell because buyers don't have to worry about stepping outside their comfort zone if they like what they see at first glance.
Stainless steel appliances can add over $15,000 to your home's value. If you're planning on selling your home anytime soon, it might be time to upgrade your appliances to stainless steel. Stainless steel appliances will often make buyers think of high-end kitchens and may prompt them to offer more money than if they were seeing a kitchen with more traditional materials like laminate or granite countertops.
Easy tip to sell your home!
Make your house smell amazing so people have a great first impression when they walk in. If you want to do this without using lots of chemically made fragrances then I recommend essential oils!
Using certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils allows for a pleasant aroma to linger throughout the space without irritating the nasal passages.
What types of essential oils you ask?
Lemon, Wild Orange and Peppermint!
If you are wanting to neutralize odors, try Purify.
Just a few drops in a diffuser and you've done the trick!
Balance – Sometimes, the "against the wall theory" is not the greatest idea. Is the room balanced? Is all the furniture to one side? Create a balance so that there's a natural walking flow path around the sitting area.
Function - Lighting, use natural and ambient lights. Living rooms (even formal) should have a coffee table and a place to put down a drink.
Color – Neutral with a splash of color.
