Now that you're thinking about selling your home, it's a good idea to consider making a few upgrades that will help increase its value. This will not only help ensure that you get top dollar for your home, but it should help get you offers quickly. Here are a couple of effective ways to increase the value of your home before putting it on the market:
Give the Walls New Life
Painting some of the walls inside your home can help increase its overall value and increase buyer interest, which can help your home sell quicker and for more money. There's no need to spend a lot of money painting every wall in your home in order to update its look and increase its value. Focus on the rooms that get high traffic, like the bathrooms, and those where the paint on the walls have been damaged in some way.
While choosing neutral paint colors for your walls is typically the best idea so potential buyers can imagine their own décor inside, don't be afraid to use accent colors on the trim to create an ambiance that helps draw buyers in. For example, trimming the walls with hues of blue will keep prospective buyers calm and provide them with some peace of mind when they tour your home. Consider using stencils to paint trendy accent designs on your trim and crown molding.
Replace Your Old Air Conditioner
Replacing your old inefficient air conditioner with a new one is an excellent way to increase the perceived value of your home among potential buyers. They'll be able to expect comfortable temperatures inside no matter how hot or cold it is outside, without having to worry about the need for repairs or upgrades in the coming years. And while you're still living in the home, you may be able to save some money on energy costs because of the efficiency of the new air conditioner.
Look for a new air conditioner that's Energy Star rated so you know it meets strict efficiency standards. To ensure optimal performance after installing your new air conditioner, have the air ducts cleaned and the furnace tuned up. Enhance the convenience of the new air conditioner by installing a smart thermostat to control it. The latest models offer exciting features such as voice control, remote management, and weekly scheduling options.
You may even be able to trade your old air conditioner in for a steep discount on your new one, so schedule a consultation today and enjoy more convenience and comfort until you're ready to sell your home.
