There are many small updates and improvements that you can do around your home to help you get a big return on investment.

Even if you’re not looking to sell your house in the near future, these simple fixes can make your living space more comfortable and enjoyable, while setting you up for the day you’re ready to make a move.

Increase curb appeal.

You know what they say- “first impressions last a lifetime.” The easiest way to leave a lasting impression is to do so from the very start, AKA focusing on your house’s curb appeal.

If you’re ready to make a big improvement, get your house’s exterior painted or shingles power-washed and stained. You can also improve curb appeal with little fixes like planting flowers, installing a birdhouse or investing in a new mailbox. Even though these things may not take much time and are easy to do, they’re sure to increase your home’s curb appeal and in turn its value.

Keep your house clean.

A fairly simple and straightforward way to increase your home’s value, is to keep it as clean as possible. Giving your space a periodic deep clean will help keep it in good shape for a day when you’re ready to sell. Also, consistently giving your home the once over will help you notice any repairs that may need to be done. Doing small routine improvements can help you avoid bigger, more expensive projects later.

Upgrade your bathrooms.

A bit of a bigger project than the previous point, but one that will bring a big ROI, is to update your home’s bathrooms. These days buyers place a lot of value on the quality and size of a home’s bathrooms. Even if you’re not ready to fully remodel, you can take small steps to increase value like regrouting, installing a new shower head and toilet seat or adding some high end details like a heated towel rack.

Go green.

Not only will taking the steps toward green living save you money in the meantime, but energy efficient homes are a big hit in today’s market. There are various ways to go about this with different price tags, from installing solar panels and making the switch to energy-saving appliances to making sure your doors and windows are properly sealed and your insulation is updated.

Add an outdoor living space.

Outdoor living areas are in high demand nowadays and this is something you can add to your home easily and pretty inexpensively. Whether you install a back patio, DIY a backyard fire pit, add new deck or go all out with the addition of an outdoor kitchen, this extra entertaining space is sure to add value to your home.
