Tips to Increase the Value of Your Home

The Florida real estate market took off during the pandemic; buyers snatched up houses within hours of hitting the market and homeowners expected their homes to sell for well above asking price. Unfortunately for homeowners, those days are long gone. As the Fed has increased interest rates, the market has cooled off. While it’s still possible for homeowners to sell their homes for top dollar, they need to ensure their home is in tiptop shape to command that type of price, which may involve undergoing some renovations.

Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Remember the old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”? Well, that holds true for seeing a home for the first time as well. Consider repainting your home if the paint is peeling or in need of a refresh. Power washing can also be a good idea if you recently painted but want to give your home a fresher look. Repair or replace your walkway if it is damaged or cracked. Your landscaping should make the house look inviting. Some ways to accomplish this are:

  • Give all the foliage a trim, or, if it is really overgrown, plant fresh landscaping, including sod, if needed.
  • Keep the area weed-free.
  • Plant flowers for a pop of color.

Update Your Home’s Interior

When a potential buyer walks into a house with an updated kitchen or bathrooms, it instantly elevates the perceived value of your home. Kitchen updates can be completed on various budget levels, ranging from cabinet refacing or upgrading appliances to an entire renovation. Similarly, refinishing scratched up hardwood floors or replacing faded or worn-out carpeting with new flooring using on-trend styles can instantly make your home feel more appealing. Another update to consider is replacing wallpaper with a light, neutral paint color. Wallpaper patterns can be polarizing – some people love them and others hate them. With a light, neutral color, the rooms look larger and will match everyone’s furniture.

Install Hurricane Impact Windows

New hurricane impact windows can give potential buyers a sense of relief that their home will be protected in a severe storm and that they can avoid the hassle of hurricane shutters. These top-of-the-line windows also increase the home’s soundproofing abilities, an especially important attribute if your home is located on a busy road. Home buyers (and their insurance companies) will love that these windows are nearly impenetrable, protecting the home from break-ins as well as hurricane winds. Your home can experience an increase in value even if you install hurricane impact windows in some of rooms, such as on one floor or in one section of the home.
