How to Get the Most Value When Selling Your Home

If you are about to put your house on the market or already have you may want to take some steps to ensure you get the most value out of the sale.  Many people don’t put enough thought into the sale of their house.  They had it off to a real estate agent and be done with it. However, if you do a little extra you’ll find you can easily add value to your home before it sells.  


Staging is one of the top things that can enhance the value of your home when you are selling.  The average cost of this is about $3,000 but it’s worth it in the end.

Digital History

In this day and age, everybody wants everything digital.  Creating a digital home history will allow prospective buyers to easily see maintenance records, floor plans, and important documents.  This will speed up the process while landing you a quicker sale and adding to the home’s value because it’s trusted.

Curb Appeal

Anytime you boost your home’s curb appeal you raise the value of it.  The outside of your home is the first thing people see when they arrive.  It’s their first impression and any realtor will tell you that’s very important.  Even if you can’t afford new stuff for the outside a simple paint job will help.

Kitchen or Bathroom Upgrades

Updating your kitchen with new appliances is the perfect way to add some value.  Also, adding some detail or nuance in the bathroom does the trick.

New Hardware

Installing new hardware will boost the value of your home.  Simple things like doorknobs and light fixtures will go a long way.  

If you take the time to do one or more of these things you’ll be rewarded in the end.
