5 Easy Ways to Add Value to Your Home

Increasing the value of your home may seem complicated, especially if you want to maximize the sale price of your home in your local real estate market. But what if you could increase your home value with several simple renovations? You can! And Ellecore makes it easy. In today’s blog, Ellecor Interior Design shares five ways you can increase your home’s value. 

1. Hire an Interior Designer

Interior designers can completely transform your design direction to match your desired aesthetic. Many elements go into designing a home, such as choosing furniture, home decorations, efficiency improvements, and more. Potential home buyers are looking for a house that meets their expectations for a desirable property. Investing in an interior designer before you sell your home can attract the right buyers, garner more purchase offers, and raise the overall value of your home.  

2. Improve Curb Appeal

The first thing that buyers see when they arrive at your house for a tour is the yard, landscaping, and exterior of the home. This can be the make-or-break moment for interested buyers. Before even listing your house, assess the curb appeal and make a note of what you need to improve. This can be as simple as mowing the yard, planting trees, repainting the exterior, or installing lights.

3. Redo Your Kitchen Counters

Kitchen counters are some of the first things people notice when they are touring a house. The most sought-after countertop is granite due to the look, finish, and durability. Countertops serve many purposes, including storage, food preparation, cutting surfaces, serving areas, dining areas, and more. Homebuyers are looking for attractive countertop spaces as they imagine their own family enjoying life in the home. So consider investing in new countertops before you sell!

4. Get Up to Date

There are two ways to instantly make your home more appealing to the new generation of home buyers: keep up with home design trends and install new technology. There are certain design styles from past decades that can make a house feel old and outdated. Styles and preferences are always changing, and if you are behind the times, it can affect your home value. Update with new trends and new technology to make your home more attractive to modern buyers.

5. Replace Your Rugs or Carpet

Carpets and rugs can quickly become dirty and dingy after years of wear. Stained areas and dull colors are not appealing to buyers and can be a point of contention between the buyer and seller. Consider replacing the carpet or resurfacing hardwood floors to increase your home value, update your home design, and provide years of durable flooring for prospective buyers.
