1. Ask for Some Advice: Seek some expert advice about ways to increase the resale value on your home from experts like interior decorators and/or realtors. Many real estate agents are eager to list your house and share their expertise for free or a low cost in hopes of getting the listing. Interior decorators may also be prepared to offer an initial consultation for free or low costs.
2. Consider a Home Inspection: Making some small improvements to your home’s structure could help increase its value. You can gain a lot of insight by having a professional inspection of your house’s roof, insulation, exterior, wiring, plumbing, and pest problems. Many problems like leaks, cracks, sinking, poor wiring, frayed electrical systems can be fixed relatively inexpensively if they’re caught early. If left unfixed, they can become a reason your house would not pass inspection for resale.
3. Never Underestimate the Value of Paint: A fresh coat of paint can dramatically improve the look of your house! Neutral colors can appeal to most buyers and are easy to accessorize.
4. Look at Energy Costs: Low energy costs are a great selling feature, but they also save you homeowner costs. Many local utility companies will offer free energy efficiency inspections of your home and/or energy saving workshops.
