Best Ways to Add Value to Your Home

Best Ways to Add Value to Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Boosting your home value has plenty of perks to it.

    If you're going to sell your home and move, then you can ask for more money from buyers.


Even if you’re staying put for a while, you can possibly turn added home value into cash through a mortgage refinance. However, you first need to know the best ways to add value to your home.

Improve the Landscaping

You don’t need a well-manicured garden or even an elaborate water feature. A yard that looks easy on the eyes but would also be easy to maintain is going to make a huge impression on potential buyers that drive by your home before they decide to see the interior.

Make Things Modern

Do what you can to modernize your home. Install Wi-Fi and smart security. Put a digital thermostat in. Replace brass knobs with brushed nickel.

Fill your kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and swap out your countertops for quartz.

One cheap and simple upgrade is replacing older incandescent light bulbs with modern LED technology. A little money here goes quite a long way.

Add More Space

Pretty much any room addition will add value to your home. When real estate professionals give short descriptions of a home for sale, they always throw out three numbers: the total square footage, the number of bedrooms, and the number of bathrooms.

All room additions boost the square footage, and if you add a bathroom or bedroom, in particular, you’ll increase the value even more.

Efficiency Is Desirable

Anything you can do to make your home cheaper to own and maintain will increase its value because buyers crave such things. Low-flow showerheads, faucets, and toilets mean conserving water, and energy-efficient appliances require less electricity.

These things don’t just save money but also align with the climate-conscious values of many buyers.

New Coat of Paint

This is something you can do to the interior or the exterior. Touching up old and faded spots bring new visual energy to any room or the home’s outside for curb appeal. Paint doesn’t cost much, but the improved aesthetic does wonders for the home value.
