What do driveways, dirt, and details all have in common? Well, yes, they all obviously start with the letter “D” but they can also all help you significantly increase the value of your home. Here’s how:
- Upgrade your driveway. A driveway helps draw the eye to your home. Driveways are the first things potential buyers see when looking at properties, and first impressions have a huge impact on the value of a home. If yours has gotten run down over the years, or if you’ve got a gravel driveway, give the paving company a call. Invest in a nicely paved asphalt driveway and you’ll end up lining your pockets with some extra cash when you’re ready to sell your house.
- Focus on the details. Many homeowners make the mistake of wasting lots of money on pricey improvements like a new kitchen while forgetting all about the smaller things. But it’s those little things that make the real difference. Replacing worn out carpet, cleaning grout, or touching up the paint job will actually have a stronger impact on your home’s value than a ridiculously expensive new kitchen will.
- Get dirty. Whoever said money doesn’t grow on trees obviously didn’t know about the monetary impact that plants can have on your house. Mature trees can add up to $1,000 (per tree!) to your property’s value. So put your gloves on and start digging – you’ll be glad you did.
Focus on the three D’s of your home and when it comes time to sell, your little investments are sure to pay off. Have any other tips? Let us know in the comment section.
