How to increase the value of a house

The smallest details can make all the difference when you put your house up for sale. Your home is an investment and as is
the case in most of them, you can increase the value of your property by making some savvy purchases and using some elbow
grease. You can quickly increase the value of your home and sell it more easily by investing money and taking the time to
clean and renovate it.

1 Repaint the walls.

Real estate agents keep repeating that a layer of fresh paint is the easiest way to increase the value
of a home. That said, a bright purple can be a deterrent for potential buyers. Consider neutral tones such as beige or light
green with simple white borders and ceilings, which can appeal to most buyers [1] .
First, repaint the most used rooms like the kitchen, the living room and the main bathroom, if your budget is tight.
Avoid bright colors such as pink or yellow, as well as dark shades such as chocolate brown or navy blue, as these choices
may put some buyers off.

2 Remove all the wallpaper and replace it with paint.

The wallpaper displeases the buyers a lot because it is painful to
remove if they do not like it. Stick to neutral paintings to get the most value for your home [2] .
Some wallpapers, especially in smaller pieces, may be relevant if they are well chosen. Stick to simple, neutral patterns,
not bulky, flashy prints.

3 Let the light in.

A 2007 survey on real estate showed that the luminosity was the first test of the potential buyers to make
the difference between good and excellent house [3] . You can add lighting in many ways.
Install switches that dim the light and lift the mood.
Install a canopy or skylight (a glass plate in the ceiling that lets in more light) to bring in the light more naturally.
Remove the curtains too big and too thick.
Replace old light bulbs with more energy efficient LEDs for a cleaner, more modern atmosphere without breaking the bank.
