Affordable Extras to Add to Your Home

Spruce up your home without breaking the bank!

Looking for ways to revamp your home without putting yourself in the poorhouse? If you want to spiff up your home to get it ready for the real estate market, rest assured that you can do this fairly inexpensively.

The actual cost and payback for each project can vary, but here are the top 10 simple upgrades that can easily add thousands to your home’s value!

Make your kitchen really cook.
The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home. Potential home buyers make a beeline for this room when they first view a home for sale, so make sure that yours looks clean and reasonably updated. Replace the kitchen faucet set, add new cabinet door handles, and update old lighting fixtures with brighter and more energy-efficient ones.

Revamp your appliances.
If your kitchen appliances don’t match, order new doors or face panels for them. A mix-and-match kitchen can look cute and quirky, but it may take a specific home buyer to look past the jumbled-looking kitchen.

Strip the carpets.
Original wood flooring ranks higher on the wish list of many a homebuyer. If you have prime wooden floors lurking underneath that raggedy carpet, it’s time to showcase it! Sand the floors and add a coat of varnish to top it off!

Get smart.
While it may not be as fun as a custom closet or a sprinkler system, a high-end programmable thermostat can be an attractive feature for your home’s next owner. Any other green-tech extras are highly valued since the general movement towards increasing energy efficiency.
