Building Equity in Your HomePosted on 04/28/15
“How much is my home worth?” This is a question that Northwest Florida real estate agents are often asked. How that’s determined is one thing, but how can you increase the value and build equity in your home is another.
It’s not an exact science, but professionals in the industry will tell you there are certain areas that will make or break your home sale:
Curb appeal – First impressions set the mood for the entire showing. Avoid scaring potential buyers off by spending some quality time with your lawn. Dollar for dollar, curb appeal is an area that will provide you a great return.
The kitchen – To increase that return, direct your efforts to the heart of the home- the kitchen. Consider updating different features including counters, cabinets, fixtures and appliances. You may be surprised to find the difference a renovated kitchen could have on your home sale.
