Tips to Increase the Value of Your Grand Forks Home

When selling your home, your goal is attracting home buyers with the value of your home. Here are a few home improvements and quick fixes that you can do to increase your home's visual appeal and boost the value of your Grand Forks home. 

Spruce Up the Front Yard

What home buyers see from the curb is their first impression of your home — inside and out. Impress them by cleaning your driveway, planting flowers, and even tidying up your mailbox. 

You can improve your home's curb appeal yourself by washing the dirt and oil stains off the driveway, painting the mailbox, removing any weeds and debris from the lawn, and generally making your front yard visually pleasing to passersby. 

Welcome Visitors with Your Front Door

Even the simplest fixes like a fresh coat of paint and a new doorknob can have great results. The front of your home should be warm and inviting, welcoming visitors — and potential home buyers — to explore the inside of your beautiful home. 

Showcase Your Floors

When a visitor or a potential home buyer walks through your home, one of the first things they notice is a beautiful floor. Make sure yours is presentable and looking like new. You can hire a professional cleaning surface to deeply clean your carpets, or you can invest in DIY flooring options to upgrade your floors. It's well worth the investment.   

Keep Your Decor Consistent

This is also a key aspect of home staging. Use similar color schemes on the walls in your home, and make sure the floors complement the room's decorations. It can even be as simple as buying cabinet knobs the same color as your kitchen appliances. 

Expand Your Space 

What you do with the square footage in your home makes a huge difference. When you're selling your property, reduce the clutter in your home to make the room feel larger. Opening windows to let the light in brightens the living spaces, too, adding to your home's beauty — and its value. 

Upgrade Your Bathrooms

Along with kitchens, bathrooms are a deciding factor in a home sale. You can make small upgrades and repairs to the shower, sink, and floors. If you're considering a bathroom remodeling project, focus on redoing any out-of-date showers or adding a water-saving commode.
