This post is sponsored by Energy Efficient Tinting.

Would you like to make your home more valuable to prospective buyers? It would be easy to spend loads of money updating and revamping your home to make to more appealing, however a few small and simple changes can make just as big an impact. Here are a few simple ways to get started!

Window Tinting

Window tinting is a great idea for most homes. Not only can it make the inside of your home more private and safe from intruders, but it can also protect the interior from harmful flare and UV rays. Why let you car have all the benefits from window tinting, when you home can benefit just as much? Window tinting, offered by companies like Energy Efficient Tinting, can keep your furniture from fading and reduce the heat inside your home.

Utilise Space

Increasing the value of your home can be as simple as providing the opportunity for maximising space. Downsize furniture where you can, big pieces of furniture in small spaces can make the space look and feel cramped. Make the most of the space you have to offer by doing the best you can to make that space look and feel bigger.

Decrease Clutter

Such a simple, free thing to do, which not only increases appeal of the property, but will no doubt increase the eventual sale price. Clutter can easily detract from value. Just like utilising space, decreasing the clutter in your home will give opportunity for the house to speak for itself, rather than a potential buyer feeling cramped in the busy space. Buyers need to be able to see themselves living in a space, it’s not easy to see that potential if it’s so full of the current owners.

Update The Landscape

The very first thing a potential buyer sees is the front of your home. Whether your land is extensive or even quite small, give your yard the upgrade it needs. Give the garden a makeover, mow the lawn, be sure to hide the clutter once again, tidy hoses and gardening implements, and don’t forget the fence. Does it need to be replaced, or painted for the house to have the most curbside appeal?

Consider a Lighting Change

The way a room is light can make a difference to the feel of the home. Lighting changes can give a whole room a new feel. if you consider the placement and use of the room then you can decide what the most appropriate lighting is. Give entry ways bright lighting with a far reach, bedrooms soft lighting that is gentle on the eyes and kitchens multiple lighting effects for different times of the day. Good lighting can increase the value of your home significantly.

Change Old Fixtures

The fixtures in your home can be easily forgotten, but once they are upgraded, the change is noticeable. Replace old tap wear, doorknobs and handles, and light switches to revamp the rooms in your home and increase it’s value.

Replace Worn Out Items

Replace the warn out items in your home such as carpets, fans, windowpanes and even appliances. While upgrading items in your home can be a huge and often anΒ  expensive undertaking, tackle one item, one room at a time to make it more manageable. By replacing old household goods with newer, cleaner, fresher items you home feels like one ready to be moved into, increasing the value of your home.

Increasing the value of your home will take time and energy, but not every options needs to be an expensive one. Take your time, and consider all your options carefully before you begin. Good luck.

  1. Window tinting makes a big difference to energy costs. Keeps the house cooler during summer. It makes sense it would add more value to your property for that reason. Glad to hear you’re doing better lovely. xx

  2. Great tips! My friend has been house hunting and I’ve been tagging along. We went to see some apartments in our complex and it’s amazing how they’ve been transformed into “sale ready.” It’s given me lots of ideas – now I just need to win the lottery so I can make my vision a reality! LOL!
