7 Ways You Can Make More Money When You Sell Your Home
Getting the best deal when selling a house is all about making your home stand out — while spending as little additional time and money as possible.
In a housing market still adjusting to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, doing everything you can to make the most money on your house is especially important.
Are Existing Homes Really More Pricey Than New?
The median existing-home price for a single-family home in March jumped to a record high of $334,500, according to data from the National Association of REALTORS®. Meanwhile, the median sales price of a newly built home was $330,800, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.
New homes are traditionally more expensive than used homes. The scenario in which existing homes sell for more than new homes hasn’t occurred in more than 15 years, CNBC reports.
23 Cheap Upgrades That Will Actually Increase
The Value of Your Home
1. Paint kitchen cabinets.
Adding new cabinetry can be super expensive, but a couple coats of new paint can make an outdated kitchen look much more modern and clean. See how to do it here.
2. Update cabinet handles.
Swapping out generic or older cabinet handles can make a kitchen look completely different. This company makes new handles that even fit IKEA cabinets.
3. Add extra seating areas outside.
4. Get new outlet and lightswitch plates.
These get super dirty with use, but are really cheap to replace (<$1 each). If you want to go really ~fancy~, paint your plates the same color as the wall so they disappear more.
5. Add molding.
6. Bump up the curb appeal.
The front of your house is the first thing potential buyers see, so make sure it’s stately and welcoming. Add some extra plants to the porch or the entryway, paint the door.
Check out these other DIY tips for increasing your curb appeal here.
7. Make upgrades to your landscaping.
8. Turn any room into a bedroom with a closet or wardrobe.
9. Get rid of the popcorn ceiling.
Just make sure to get it tested for asbestos before you try this one yourself—some homes built before the 1970’s have it in the ceiling. See how to do it here.
