MOVING OUT: HOW TO GIVE AN OLD HOME AN INCREASED VALUE

on November 3, 2014
| News

For SaleWhether you are moving to follow a dream, or you’ve found you simply need a different housing situation, selling your old house before you can move to a new one is the first step. Make sure your old house is going to get you the cash you need. Now might be the right time to invest in some new renovations and curb appeal so you can get your money’s worth. Check out these ways to give value to your own home, before you make the big push to move out!

HVAC Matters

Take a close look at what your HVAC situation is. Make sure your furnace and air conditioning system is working well. Do not let a home inspection surprise you regarding what is going on with your HVAC service. According to Kele professionals at www.kele.com the worst way to lose money on a house is having an air system that needs to be immediately fixed. Stay on top of things and get maintenance done if you need it.

Landscaping

Take a look at the landscaping around your home. Curb appeal is a very real thing when making sure your home has value. Bag up any litter and make sure any dead or unsightly trees are taken care of. See about planting some new trees or putting in some new hedges. You’d be surprised what kind of improvements can be made that only take a small amount of time or money. If you have the time or the inclination, think about adding a simple water feature, like a birdbath, or a small fountain.

Paint to Neutrals

One of the best and cheapest ways to enhance the value of your home is to look into painting the inside rooms. Skip the bright or artistic colors unless you are purposefully planning to market your home as a creative opportunity. Instead, stick with very plain neutral colors, tending towards the brighter and lighter end of the spectrum. Neutrals may be dull, but they allow people to imagine how their tastes will look inside your home.

Keep It Clean

If you are bringing people into your home to see what is going on, be sure you keep your home clean and organized. A clean home is a hundred times more welcoming, and you will make your sale much, much faster. If necessary, call in a professional cleaning service to help you out.

There is a lot you can do to improve the value of your home at the last moment, so see what your options are!
