7 Tips to Improve Your Home Value

The value of a home is a very important number, especially if you are considering selling your home at the Lake of the Ozarks, now or in the future.  Some home improvement projects pay off, while others are less valuable. Provided below, by your trusted real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, Missouri, are some home improvement projects that can help add value to your home.

1) Fixture Upgrades

An easy and inexpensive way to update an entire room is to change out the fixtures. Changing draw pulls and cabinet handles give the room a new feel. Once your handles are changed, you can also upgrade the lighting fixtures to a similar, matching tone.

2) Think Flooring

Floors are a major value added item to incorporate in your space. Whether you plan to replace carpet or add new hardwood or tile, upgraded floors are a major selling point for future buyers.

3) Create Space

Square footage is an important factor in a home, adding floor space to your house can help improve the value. If you are not ready to take on a full room addition, you can create the illusion of more space. Opening up a room by knocking down a non-load bearing wall can help add visual space to your home. Adding recessed shelving can also help to create storage space, opening up floor space in the room.

4) Power of the Front Door 

The front door is a focal point of the home. Having the right door is a small change that can do wonders for the value of your house. Whether you want a pop of color or a striking wooden door, choose one that fits the look and feel of your house.

5) Allow Natural Light In

Light creates the illusion of more space, which is an easy way to increase the size appearance of your home. Adding a skylight in a room can increase the light level, as well as save a little on electrical light. Another way to allow natural light in, is to use sheer curtain window coverings.

6) Routine Maintenance

Before you spend time and money upgrading your home, perform basic repairs. Add insulation, replace gutters, seal windows and doors, and repair leaky faucets and pipes are all great ways to improve your space.

7) Neutral Color Pallet

The color pallet is geared more toward those wanting to sell. A neutral color theme appeals to a larger number of potential buyers, than a bold color pallet. The investment involved with paint is minimal when compared to the amount that may be taken off of the asking price, if a potential buyer does not like the color theme of the house.

Now that you know some of the ways to add value to your home, you are ready to start your home improvement projects. The key to diving into a remodel or improvement project is to plan, prepare, and take your time. When rushing through a project, an important step may be overlooked.
