Top 5 things a home seller can do to really increase your home’s value that costs under $5,000.

  1. Kitchens and baths. You can always get your money back on that investment. You don’t necessarily have to redo the whole kitchen and do cabinets, but things like lighting, counter tops, appliances, the sink, and door hardware are always a great investment. 
  2.  Flooring. Did you know buyers don’t want to buy a house with old dirty carpet or damage flooring? In fact, when they make offers on a home, their offers will be as many as four times the cost of replacing that because they don’t see the value and they don’t want to spend the cash on doing that. 
  3. You can do really well for improving your appliances. Stainless steel is really popular. You can get a whole package including a refrigerator for under $3,500.
  4. Counter tops. You know, you can get granite in most kitchens for $5,000 and
  5. Central air conditioning. A lot of homes here don’t have it, and it’s a great improvement that does improve your value.
