Is It Small Stuff or Sweat Equity?
Updated: Feb 14, 2022
A lot of the time when we talk about adding value to your home we emphasize big projects, but small things can actually make or break a home inspection and devalue your home. So, why not take care of those things before you sell so you can enjoy the home and feel more comfortable meanwhile?
Adding "value" can be a broad term. If it improves the value of your life to have a welcoming, cared for space when you come home, then that's also value!
Deciding Where To Start
With extra time on your hands from being home days on end, many of us are working on adding some value or comfort to our home. Starting new projects, or finishing old ones, can help you feel productive and accomplished, especially when there is so much you can not control.
Even if you are not considering selling your home anytime soon, wouldn't it be nice to live in a home that you love? Make your house feel more like a home. Organized, comfy, and clean are all things that add up to that welcome home feeling.
Do What You Can
Some of us have more access to supplies or skills than others, however I am a strong believer in adding value or desirability to your home even with limitations.
If you have access to paint and supplies, then you can add real value to your home during this time. Replacing hardware in bathroom, doors, kitchens, can be an option to update a space. Paint does alot! Fresh walls and trim can really change the feel of a home.
If you do not have a lot of supplies, here is a great article that has lots of ideas on easy projects: "21 easy home projects to tackle while you’re hunkered down"
