Here are seven ways you can update your home without breaking the bank.

There are seven main ways you can update and improve your home. Even if you’re not looking to sell

immediately, these can still help bolster your home’s value and get you prepared in case you decide

to sell:

1. Paint your home. The least expensive way is to put a fresh coat of paint on everything: the exterior, ceilings, doors, or even wrought iron fences. It can even help protect the look of your home from wear and tear.

2. Update the lighting. This might be one that gets ignored, but your hardware store, a magazine, or even other open houses can show you how others are upgrading the lighting. Getting recessed lighting and putting dimmers on the lights are a couple of great ways to improve the value of your home.

3. Bring the indoor to the outdoor spaces. You can add sofas, fire pits, lighting, and carpets outside that can make it more enjoyable to stay out there. If you have a bit more budget you could renovate the deck or even add a pool.

"Even if you’re not ready to retire or move, you want to update your home."

4. Maintain your heating and air conditioning. I strongly suggest you service your units using some local heating and air companies. It can make sure they’re running efficiently and help lower allergens in your home.

5. Check or replace the windows. Replacing the windows is obviously the best, but if you don't have enough money, it still pays to check them, replace broken screens, or even apply some weather stripping.

6. Repair the roofing. Replacing the roof outright can be pretty expensive, so alternatively you can fix specific leaks or get some air vents to cool the garage and attic spaces and make your roof more efficient.

7. Add storage. Adding a room, if you have the space, will always bump up your home’s value. Particularly, bedrooms, storage rooms, and home offices are really good to add these days.

I hope these tips give you some ideas. Feel free to reach out to me by email, text, or phone.

I’d be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
