Whether you're a new homeowner or an experienced Do It Yourself-er, you can dramatically add value to your home with a few simple home improvement projects. Investing in a few home improvement projects before moving can go a long ways toward making your home more appealing for those who are looking to buy a new home. If you're using a realtor, you can make the sale of your home go much smoother by adding value to your home through some basic upgrades and investments. Add a little elbow grease, time, and money to our simple home improvement tips and you'll be well on your way to getting your home in tip-top shape.

First and foremost, painting a room or two (or more) can work wonders in providing a new look and perspective to the interior of your home. Go for new, stylish tones to provide the most benefit. Sherwin-Williams Director of Color Marketing Michael Plank forecasted the color trends that will dominate design in 2019. At the Design Chicago expo in December 2018, Plank predicted that the most popular colors would be bold "sun-washed oranges and tans inspired by the American West, rich galactic jewel tones and...a mix of vivid purples, golds, reds, and emeralds.” Of course, you can paint a bathroom or bedroom, but it's also worthwhile to paint your home's exterior surfaces, especially if it hasn't been done in a while. Realtors love to see that you're being proactive in the sale of your home.

Tackling functional repairs can be equally as rewarding as more cosmetic ones. For example, making sure all the outlets and appliances in your home are new and up to date can help your property stand out from other homes for sale. Potential buyers and realtors alike are always glad to see that details have been addressed and handled. You should also take care of any plumbing, electrical, and HVAC issues that may have been neglected.

Landscaping is another profitable area to invest in. Even laying down some new soil and mulch can revitalize your outdoor space. Try installing new outdoor lights to give your yard a more vibrant nighttime appeal. Lights also have the added benefit of providing a greater sense of security for families who might be new to the neighborhood.

When you list your property for sale, you want to be sure it's as appealing as it can be. By investing a little time and money into home improvement projects, you're doing your part to please buyers and realtors. We hope that with our simple guide you have some ideas to get started on adding value to your home!
