4 Easy Things to Do This Weekend to Increase the Value of Your Home



With the pandemic still going on, you probably have more time on your hands during the weekends. If you’re looking for productive things to do to keep you busy, why not make some easy home improvements to increase the value of your Waltham home? Increasing the value of your home doesn’t always require expensive tasks. Waltham Realtors suggest these 5 easy home improvements that can be done in a weekend that have been proven to add value to homes. 


  1. Grab A Paint Brush

Most Waltham Real Estate agents agree that a good paint job goes a long way when improving the value of your home. Repainting the outside of your home, certain rooms, or even every room is an easy and cheap way to majorly upgrade your home. Paint can freshen and liven up a room and it also cleans up any stains or scuffs on your walls. Waltham Realtors suggest using neutral colors like whites and beiges for both the inside out outside. 


  1. Change Your Hardware

If the hardware in your home looks to be a little outdated, it may be time to replace them. Hardware such as door handles, cabinets, faucets, sinks, etc. should be on the newer side if you’re looking to have them help you increase your home’s value. Replacing your hardware is easy, fast, and inexpensive which makes it a great weekend project! Waltham Realtors highly suggest this easy upgrade as it is one less thing a buyer will have to do, making it more likely for a buyer to make an offer. 


  1. Power Wash the Outside 

People often forget to clean the outside of their homes since they spend most of their time inside. Giving the outside of your home a good power wash is a great and extremely easy way to upgrade your home to look brand new again! Nowadays, people are mostly searching for homes online which means your listing photos play a crucial role in selling your home. Waltham Real Estate agents suggest power washing your home before taking listing photos. This can help your home really stand out online. 


  1. Steam Clean the Carpets

Deep-cleaning your home will increase the value of it, but Waltham Realtors suggest paying special attention to the carpets. Waltham Real Estate agents say that dirty carpets may cause the buyer to wonder what other things around your home have not been maintained well. Take the time this weekend to deep clean your carpets so they look fresh and brand new.
