Budget-Friendly Projects that Increase Home Value

Sure, it’s nice to add an extra room on to a home or completely redo the home’s interior.  But those projects are expensive and also require a level of expertise that the typical homeowner may not have.

Instead, here are some doable home improvement projects that may actually enhance your/your clients’ home value:

  • Storage – everyone wants more storage regardless of how much storage they may already have.
    • Extra bedroom shelves
    • Creating more storage in the garage
    • Adding a cabinet in the kitchen
  • Updating Primary Bedroom and Bathroom – buyers are attracted to these big-ticket items
    • Add extra seating in the bedroom
    • Paint the ceiling or create two-tone wall
    • Add custom vanity in bathroom
  • Paint Cabinets
    • Repainting kitchen cabinets will modernize and brighten up the kitchen
    • Swap out past-tense cabinet handles and replace with new ones

None of these home improvement suggestions is budget breaking. On the other hand, if and when you/your clients sell, any and/or all of these suggestions may boost the home’s value.
