We all know that it’s important to take care of your home. But, when it comes to improving the value of your home, where do you even start? The good news: a little bit goes a long way here!

Looking ahead to the coming year, there are plenty of ways to build equity on your forever home, or also get top dollar if you’re looking to sell. Here are some ways to increase the value of your home in 2020.

Start Outside

Curb appeal is very important, especially here in California! First impressions are everything when you’re looking to sell your home, but it’s also important for increasing the value of your home. You can spruce up your exterior by:

  • Adding plants and fun landscaping options
  • Create outdoor living space with a pergola, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, etc.
  • Add a pop of color with a painted front door

These are just a few ways to make your neighbors stare, but they can easily increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to buyers!

Head Inside

Add value to your home with simple changes such as updating light fixtures and paint colors

Now that you have your exterior looking top-notch, it’s time to move inside your home. Have you ever heard the saying “kitchens and bathrooms sell houses”? Well, it’s true! These are two rooms that people spend the most time in, so they should be fun and inviting.

You don’t have to tear everything out and start new in these rooms. Try starting with a fresh coat of paint on the walls, or even on cabinetry. You will be surprised how much paint impacts a room, and this also applies for any room in your home.

You can also make simple changes like switching out hardware, mirrors and wall décor, or even light fixtures. After all, it’s all about the details!

Go Big, Stay Home

There comes a time when every home owner should consider larger remodels. Not sure if it’s time, yet? Check out this article about how often a home should be remodeled.

A larger remodel is an investment of time and money, but it can dramatically increase the value of your home. In our years of experience, we can definitely say that kitchens offer the highest return on investment. You can even expect a greater increase of home value if you are remodeling a very outdated kitchen.

Other large scale remodels, such as bathrooms, flooring, additions and garage conversions will also offer dramatic increases to the value of your home. The great part of doing a large scale remodel is that it will benefit you whether you are looking to sell or plan to stay for years to come.
