Power wash.

Dirt and grime can build up on the exterior of your home quickly. Not only is this build up unsightly, it’s an instant value killer. For a few hundred dollars, you can brighten up your home with the help of a professional contractor.

Curb appeal.

A yard full of weeds is more than an eyesore — neglected landscaping can lower your home’s worth, states HGTV.

“Updating the exterior of your home can be a quick and easy way to build instant value,” says Jenna Fulk, broker associate with PorchLight Real Estate Group in Denver. Start by clearing overgrown landscaping and adding potted and hanging plants to your entryway. “Also try updating the front door light fixture, replacing dated house numbers and painting the front door a bright, contrasting color to boost value and curb appeal without breaking the bank.”

Add a fresh coat of paint.

A subtle paint color can make an impactful change in your home. A fresh coat of paint can liven up the space and modernize it at the same time. The best part? You can turn into room into a beautiful one for less than $100.

Uncover the wood floors.

If your old carpet contains wood floors underneath, expose them. If you’re lucky, you won’t have to sand or refinish them. However, if you do, these materials can cost about $200 and some elbow grease. Not only will this give your home more of an updated look, it will boost your home’s value tenfold.
