Who else is itching to dust off the stillness of winter and get into spring cleaning season?
Check out these top 5 inexpensive home improvement & spring cleaning projects you can do to increase the value of your home! But first thing's first, get pre-approved for a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) so you know what your budget is going into the project.
- Paint your kitchen
Got outdated cupboards, wallpaper or paint colors lingering in your cooking space? Grab some primer & paint (white and ivory are the most common for kitchens) and brighten it up a bit! Maybe even choose an accent color (like yellow) for a bit of a bright & clean POP!
- Reinvent a room
Finish a basement or convert the attic into a craft, play, or game room and work with space you already have (to keep expenses lower). Maybe make a party out of the work and invite your resourceful friends over for pizza & drinks while you work! Versatile rooms like finished attics and basements have greater appeal to potential buyers.
- Add energy-efficient windows
Not only does this save you TONS in heating & cooling costs, but it is also highly sought-after by potential buyers. According to HGTV, you can expect a 60-70% return on this investment.
- Build/remodel a shed
Got an old shrieky shack in your backyard? Convert it into a special oasis for you or your kids. Creating an extra “room” out of this small addition can be a gamechanger for you and for the value of your home. Even if you still want to use it for storage, hardware or work, adding insulation and drywall can make all the difference in this little space.
- Repaint the fence
It’s recommended to give your fence a fresh coat of paint/stain every 2-3 years. But the true test is how it reacts to water (see HGTV tips here). Nothing sharpens up your outdoor curb appeal like a clean & tidy fence!
