If you’re looking to sell your house, you want to make sure you get the best selling price. While renovations and additions are great ways to improve your home’s value, there are also smaller steps you can take to increase your home’s value.

Here are 10 easy ways to improve the value and appearance of your home.


1. Add a Deck or Patio – Adding a deck or patio can significantly increase the value of your home and create a relaxing outdoor living space.

2. Add New Windows – Adding new windows to your home can also increase the value of your home while improving the energy efficiency of your home.

3. Install Energy Efficient Lighting – Installing energy-efficient lighting in your home can save you and your potential buyer money on utility bills.

4. Consider ways to Increase Your Square Footage – Adding an extra room or even finishing a basement or additional outbuilding can be great ways to make your home bigger. 

5. Update Your Kitchen – Updating your kitchen with modern appliances and fixtures can increase the value of the home.

6. Clean Out Clutter – Having clutter around your home can decrease the value of your home and make it harder to sell. Get rid of all unnecessary items and organize your space.

7. Repair Damaged Floors or Walls – Damaged floors can lower the value of your home, especially if the damage is visible. Repairs should be done before selling your home.

8. Replace Worn-Out Carpets With Hardwood Floors – Hardwood floors are durable and easy to maintain. They also have a timeless appeal.

9. Consider Installing Solar Panels – Solar panels save energy and reduce pollution. They also generate electricity which can be used to power lights and appliances.
