For developers, builders and property-flippers alike, adding value to a home is always a top priority. Simple improvements can go a long way in enhancing the overall appeal of a house so when it comes time to sell, you can recoup your investment — and, with some luck, turn a reasonable profit on it.
Boosting a home’s value does not always call for a complete design overhaul, here are three easy fixes, both interior and exterior, that you can do:
1. New windows and doors
Improving the curb appeal of a home is one of the best ways to improve its value, NerdWallet explained. Windows and doors immediately draw the eye of potential buyers, so making sure they are both attractive and functional is critical.
Phantom’s window screens can be customized to match a home’s aesthetic and protect against insects and provide privacy. The best part? The screens retract when not in use, giving homeowners an unobstructed view.
2. Wood flooring
According to the National Association of Realtors, refinishing hardwood flooring has a 100% return on investment. If flooring is beyond repair or fully carpeted, adding in hardwood has a 91% ROI. Clearly, this sturdy flooring is the way to go, and putting down new finish is a relatively easy project to complete within a few days.
3. Fresh coat of paint
Transform the look and feel of a home in a day by painting the exterior or interior. Warm, neutral colors will appeal to the majority of buyers according to HGTV, but don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to the entryway door or an accent wall.
