Updating your home doesn’t have to be an expensive process. In fact, sometimes the smallest changes can make the biggest differences—even if they cost almost nothing! All it takes is a little time, planning, and sweat to increase your Louisiana home’s value.
Start with one of these five actions today and watch your curb appeal (and ROI) scale to the next level.
1. Freshen up your home's exterior.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to give your home an updated look is to power wash and repaint the exterior. This will immediately make your home look cleaner and brighter, which will catch the eye of potential buyers and future realtors.
Have no idea what paints to use? You still have enough time to use this year’s trending colors.
2. Update your yard.
New mulch or blooming shrubs aren't just a pretty addition to your home. They can also help to increase your home’s appeal as well. Try adding new perennials to the sides and front of the home. You can also install a new fence or deck.
You can also look at other simple projects for your yard, like trimming low-hanging trees or tending your lawn.
3. Give your kitchen a facelift.
Kitchens can make or break a home. Even small changes, like painting the cabinets or replacing the hardware, can make a big difference. And if you're really looking to make a statement, you can update your faucets or fixtures as well.
4. Spruce up your bathrooms.
Your bathroom would do great with some updates. Something as simple as re-caulking the tub or refreshing the paint can make a world of difference.
5. Reveal your hardwood floors.
Your home may be hiding some beautiful hardwood floors under all that carpeting. If that's the case, it's time to rip up the rug and let them shine! Not only will this make your home look more stylish. It will also add extra value as well—with an average boosted resale value of 2.5%!
