In this post, I’ll share some tips for increasing home value while quarantined. A lot of us are looking for productive ways to spend our time while we are stuck in quarantine. If you had planned to sell your house before the pandemic struck, you might have been disappointed to see most real estate efforts slow to a halt. Fortunately, you can take this time to increase your home value before you start selling. In this article, we will discuss how you can make your house fetch a higher price on the market.
Start Deep Cleaning
Being stuck at home isn’t fun, but it gives us a chance to focus on what really matters. Taking the extra time spent at home to catch up on a few chores can work wonders for your home’s value.
Clean the baseboards, dust those hard to reach places, and scrub away any stains that you have.
Do Some Gardening
Gardening is a great way to pass time that can also dramatically increase your home’s value. Why not try your green thumb at creating a beautiful garden that will make people desperate to purchase your home? You won’t believe how easy gardening can be. Just do some research to find some low maintenance plants and get to work!
Another good tip is to focus on plants that look great but don’t require a lot of maintenance. It’s also smart to consider the “heartiness” of the plants you’re going to use in your landscaping. Get something that not only looks amazing but will also last through the hot Arizona summer months.
Paint The Interior
Painting isn’t that boring with the right company and music. Pull together the family for some fun time spent making the home look better than ever.
Most interior painting is fairly easy to manage, and it can make your home look brand new. Listing that your home has new paint is a great way to improve its value!
Add Some New Upgrades
Did you know you can install some new upgrades yourself? Try swapping out some new light bulbs, hanging a new mirror, or setting up a new shelf. It’s all completely DIY friendly and will make your house look incredible! And remember, you don’t need to buy top-of-the-line upgrades for your fixtures. Go with something of qualify but at a fair price and something preferred by a larger number of people. This not only could help increase the value of your home, but it can also help it sell faster once you put it on the market.
Make Minor Home Repairs
Home repairs are something we all tend to avoid, but if you’re selling your house this can cause you problems. Since you’re stuck inside, take the time to fix up the dents and cracks around the home. It will make your house look nicer and give you something productive to do at the same time. Use easy to remove sticks or those tape tabs and mark all of the spots throughout your home that have cracks, paint blemishes, or are just in need of a touchup. Use spackle to repair those spots, sand, and cover with a fresh coat of paint.
