How To Increase Your Homes Value

by Ben Gorden on March 10, 2012

There are a lot of things that you can do to make your house sell for more, however, you will need to put in some time and money to get it to sell for more than it is currently worth. There are a lot of big things that you can to, but those won’t always make the most money for you. If your goal is to get your home to be appraised at the highest amount, then it is a must to increase the resale value of it right now.

Something that a lot of people do, and you should too, is add new tile throughout your house. I know what you are thinking, and now you don’t have to put tile in every room but you should add tile to the rooms with the most foot traffic as the tile will be noticed more there. You don’t have to buy the most expensive tile, you can easily buy it online and get a bunch of cheap tile for your house that still looks nice. Another thing that you can do is buy discontinued ceramic tile and get a great deal that was as well.

Something else that I would suggest is that you place a heated towel rack in your bathroom as well. The reason why I say you must have tile and a heated towel bar in your bathroom is because they will increase the efficiency of the bathroom and make it look much better. Where most people make the mistake is they think they have to install new cabinets and shower walls just to see a difference and that is not 100% correct. Just know that some of the smallest things that you can do will make the biggest difference.

One final thing that I would recommend that you do is add some paint to the walls of your house. If you think you need to paint your entire house, then think again because you only need to paint the walls that look dirty and faded. Really, the only purpose of painting your home is to show that it has been taken care of and the walls look fairly new.

The more that you can do to your house, the more it will be worth come sales time and that is what you need to understand. Trust me on this one, you will be glad that you made your home look better and will get more out of it.

There are a lot of different things that you can do to upgrade your home a little bit and buying cheap tile is probably one of the best. Just know that you don’t always have to put in a heated towel rack, however, that is what I would highly recommend.
