There’s a saying that a person’s biggest asset is their home. If this is true, and in many cases it is, why not invest additional resources to increase its value? Whether you want to increase the value of your home for future resale or you’re seeking to sell as soon as possible, the following list will inform you of some of the ways you can increase your home’s resale value in 2019.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Smart Technology Additions

It’s no secret that the next generation of homeowners will be the Millenials. This generation is amongst the first to grow up with technology at their fingertips, and they’ll expect the same from their homes. Adding smart technology is an easy and cost-effective investment that you can do today. Adding high-tech features, such as a smart thermostat, fire detectors and security cameras, can significantly increase your home’s value.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Simple Additions

Simple additions to your home are often the most overlooked investment a homeowner can take advantage of. The fact is that people want to come to a home that they can relax in. Simple additions such as aquariums, sunrooms, and home theaters will run you between $600 and $2000 and can easily increase your home’s value. Other simple additions that you can start on today are replacing your window screens and repainting a few of those outdated walls.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Resurface Your Cabinets

There’s a reason why most house flippers tend to focus on making sure the kitchen is just right: More often than not, the kitchen is what sells the home. However, some kitchen renovations can potentially run you up thousands of dollars for even the most simple thing, such as cabinet replacements. So, how can you spruce up your kitchen without breaking the bank? For one, you can always resurface your cabinets for an extremely low price. You might be thinking to yourself, “But they look pretty beaten up, how would that help?” The fact is that although something may look beaten up, it does not mean it’s worthless. Potential buyers will no doubt rejoice in the smoothness and updated look of your resurfaced kitchen cabinets.

Adding value to your home can be a little tricky, but with the right research and budget, you can make it happen. So, what are you waiting for? Take the information in this list and get started on increasing the resale value of your home.
