1. Flooring

When looking to increase the value of your home, you want to start from the ground up. According to our experts, home buyers are attracted to, and will spend more money for, quality flooring. Hardwood, tile, or the modern industrial look work best for staging and selling homes.

2. Paint

The cost and time of painting your home is minimal compared to the return you will receive in value. Painting the interior of your house will increase the value of your home greatly and offers the highest return on investment. Our experts recommend a neutral color if you are looking to sell. In addition, getting a fresh coat of paint on the exterior adds great curb appeal to buyers, so our experts recommend doing both inside and out for best results.

3. Low-Maintenance Landscaping

Well-maintained landscaping will increase the value of your home; however, in our desert climate and with the general demographic of buyers in the Mesilla Valley market, the recommended type of landscaping is low maintenance. When looking to sell a home, you want to leave your buyers with a clean, blank canvas to let their ideas blossom. Low-maintenance landscaping gives buyers options and has a greater return on investment.

4. Bathroom

While bathroom upgrades or additions can be one of the pricier ways to improve your home, the increase of value is quite significant as well. According to a National Association of Home Builders report, adding a half bath increases the value of your home by an average of 10 percent. Adding a full bath can boost the value by 20 percent.

5. Kitchen

The improvements you make to your kitchen can add some of the biggest increases in value to your home. The kitchen is the heart of the home. When it is well designed, it can elevate the entire look and feel of a property, both in terms of appearance and functionality. And when it is not, it can make an entire home feel dated and inefficient — which can be a big problem if you are thinking of selling. Quality countertops and the right appliances can make a big difference to buyers and keep your asking price at its peak. Sherwood Cabinetry can provide you with a FREE consultation and custom design to get the kitchen that best fits your needs.

6. Organization and Clean Spaces

Keeping your home organized and clean is key to maximizing the space and visual appeal in different areas of your home. Clutter will cause your home to feel cramped and disorganized, making it seem smaller and less desirable.
