3 Simple Ways to Increase the Value of Your Vacation Home

If you’re looking to add value to your home and don’t relish the idea of tackling expensive remodel projects, we have great news for you: you don’t have to. There are many small projects around the house that can be done quickly and yield high returns whether you decide to sell or refinance.

Spruce Up Your Home with a Fresh Coat of Paint

Giving your walls a fresh coat of a light, neutral paint color is a quick way to increase the marketability of your home. If you already have a neutral wall color that has been painted recently (and has no scuffs, marks, etc.), consider painting the trim and molding with a washable and durable satin or gloss finish. You might be surprised at what a dramatic change that can be if it’s been a few years since they have been painted.

Add Some Landscaping

Front yard landscaping is the first thing potential buyers see when arriving at your home. This first impression can add significant value to your home if it’s professionally landscaped. It’s one of the surest tickets to a quick resale, and a great place to focus on spending your money. Many experts think that landscaping returns rival the return on a new kitchen or bath.

Remove the Clutter

Decluttering is probably the cheapest but one of the most important steps you can take to add instant value to your home because it allows buyers to visualize themselves and their belongings in the space. Ideally, you should pack and remove knick-knacks and personal items, including family photos, when selling your home or having it appraised. Your space will instantly look neater and cleaner and, as a bonus, will be easier to clean between showings.
