How much is your house worth?
Maybe you’re in the market to move, or you’re planning to move in the future. Either way, when it’s time to sell your home, it’s important to know what to expect. Use this blog as a free home valuation tool to find out what your home is really worth. After understanding your estimate, you can move forward with taking action to increase the value of your home.
There are several things that influence the worth of your house. Some critical factors that influence home value are:
- Usable space
- Age and condition of the house
- Interest rates
- Current condition
While some factors, such as the economy and location of your home, are out of your control, there is still plenty you can do to help update the condition of your home and increase the value when you are ready to sell.
Focus on the Floors
One of the biggest turn-offs for a home is outdated flooring. Nobody wants to purchase a home with old carpet or scratched-up wood — not to mention 70’s style laminate. That tells the buyer that after purchasing the home, they’ll have to spend even more money to update the home.
By investing in flooring, you can make your house look brand new.
Some ideas for updated flooring:
- Replace carpet
- Install hardwood floors
- Switch to modern laminate
- Style with tiles
Focus on Kitchen and Bath
People spend a lot of their time in two places: the kitchen and bathrooms. These are often the biggest selling points of a house.
Bathrooms should be clean and usable, with updated sinks and counters. Nobody wants to find mold and mildew in the tub or have to replace tiles in the shower. Make sure everything is up-to-date, clean, and very user-friendly.
Kitchens are often a central point of the home. By simply replacing appliances and switching out countertops, your kitchen can look like new. If your cabinets are out of style, consider simply painting them or replacing handles instead of buying a whole new set.
They say first impressions matter. Start on the outside of your home by sprucing up those flower beds and trimming the trees around your home. Especially if you are listing your home during spring or summer, consider investing in some fresh flowers and mulch to polish off the look.
You may want to consider keeping the outside of your landscape easy to change or transition for the next owner, too. So maybe don’t go too crazy redesigning your front and back yards in case the next owner has backyard plans of their own. A few simple steps are all it takes to clean and brighten up the outside of your home.
