We are wanting to sell our home within the next year, and because of that we have been spending a little bit of money to fix up our house. Even though we don’t plan on selling for quite some time, we are starting to fix it up now so that we don’t have to do everything all at once.
Increasing the value of your home is good because hopefully you can make some sort of profit and sell it for the amount that you want to. Also, increasing the value of your home may also help it sell more quickly.

Below are ways to increase the value of your home.
Paint your home.
Usually painting your home can raise the price of your home. It’s also something that can be done relatively easily as well. If you know what you are doing, then you should paint!
You could paint shelves, paint walls, paint the outside of your home, and so on. If anything in your home needs to be touched up as well, then you should do that as well.
Fix your curb appeal.
How’s the curb appeal at your home? Do you have growing grass? Lights at night-time? Flowers in your yard? You should really work on making the outside of your home look nice. You don’t have to go crazy and spend tens of thousands of dollars.
Spend some time and grow green grass. After that you could maybe paint your house, power wash the sides of it, or something else. Even just little touches can transform your house and let it sell for a higher amount.
Upgrade the bathroom.
Does your bathroom need to be updated? Usually bathroom renovations hold their value and you may be able to even make some money by redoing it (after you sell the house). You could completely redo it, or just replace certain things. A new mirror, new lighting, new bathtub, new toilet, new sick and so on could go a long way.
Replace the flooring.
Certain floors just look horrible in a house, and could really hurt the value of your home. Even if everything in your home was brand new, something such as dirty green carpets could really hurt the value of your home.
