Simple Ways To Increase The Value Of Your Home
If you asked the average homeowner with a house on the market if they thought their house was worth the price, they would answer with a resounding "yes!" It is rare to find a homeowner who isn't proud of their house and wants to get top dollar for their investment. This house has been their largest investment and they do not want to see it sell for less than what they paid. In this market, however, some sellers will realize that they may need to lower their asking price in order to have the house sell. When you use a real estate agent, you may have heard them say you need to put some money into the house in order to be firm with your asking price. What is the true cost of selling a house? Do you have to spend money on your house in order to make money at closing? Where do you draw the line for expenditures on a property you are leaving?

There are several key areas to your house that can almost always guarantee a return on the investment. When you put in some time, effort, and a bit of money, you will have potential home buyers wowed and impressed.

These areas include:

* Master bedroom -- Updated light fixtures, ceiling fan

* Bathroom -- Matching faucets, luxury shower head

* Kitchen -- Energy Efficient Appliances, modern cabinet pulls, updated faucet fixtures

* Front yard -- Clean, mulched where applicable, trimmed and pruned landscape

* Closets -- Organized and shelves installed to create more orderly storage

You may have heard that kitchens and bathrooms sell a house but in this tough market, you need to ensure that those rooms are not the only ones in good condition. When you consider the cost of selling a house, you may want to reconsider your asking price, unless you can afford to put the money in at the time of showings. Potential buyers will look for features in the kitchen and bathrooms that they can use and will make their lives easier. For example, energy efficient appliances in the kitchen will be major selling points to a buyer. Rather than purchase a house with appliances that need to be replaced, a buyer can move in and begin saving money on utility bills right off the bat. It is not an investment for them but instead they can reap the benefit from your investment.

In the master bedroom, buyers like see a modern, stylish light fixture with a ceiling fan. They may not use the fan all the time but having it available and already installed can be a bonus for many people. The closet space and overall storage is important in the master bedroom and bathroom. An easy fix for this is just to clean out and create the illusion of lots of storage space if it doesn't exist. When you have your bed made, the room is clear of clutter, and it feels romantic and warm, buyers will be enticed to look around and will want to spend time in that room. Anytime you can get buyers to feel comfortable and "at home" in your home, you will have been successful. As they walk through the bedroom into the bathroom, they should see a clean bathroom. You may need to invest in some towels to have on display rather than your everyday towels. Take the time to put your toiletries under the sink to maximize the feeling of openness. These are all inexpensive ways to spruce up this room.

In the rest of the rooms of the house, you can minimize the cost of selling a house by taking away the clutter from the home and neutralizing the paint colors where you can. There are some rooms that will be expensive to repaint but it can be a major selling point for buyers.

On the exterior of the house, keeping a clean and beautiful environment will go a long way. Several potted plants can make a concrete slab/deck feel like a patio and can bring color to a winter yard. These can be taken with you to your new house so the cost for these will be well-spent for you in the new house.

If you don't have the money to perform the updates in your home that you feel are necessary to achieve a successful sale, consider They will buy your house in any condition and you will have no cost to sell your home!
