Improve Your Home Value in 30 Days or Less with These 4 Projects

If improving the value of your home is on your resolution list this year, you're in luck. There are many ways to upgrade your home while increasing its value, and the good news is that you can typically get it accomplished in 30 days or less. Not only does this offer a quick way to boost your curb appeal, but it can also help you prepare to sell your home this spring if you're putting it up for sale.

Here are some quick ways to make your home a better (and more valuable) place to live in 2017.
Project #1: Get Cleaning
Believe it or not, a clean home can help attract buyers like a magnet and increase its value with a little elbow grease. This applies to both the inside and outside of your home. 
One smart way to get cleaning is to stay on top of maintenance issues such as rotting wood window frames. Rotting frames makes your home look old and worn. Not to mention, it's a sign that your windows are in need of replacement. You'll also need to address issues such as mold, which can spread quickly if left untreated.

Project #2: Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
This is another quick and easy DIY project that can help make your home worth more money. It's also especially important if you're thinking about selling your house. If you have walls in your home with chipped or faded paint, consider applying another coat. When you need more of an overhaul than a touchup, neutral colors are best if you're moving.
However, if you plan to stay in your home, have fun with your new paint color and add your own personal taste.
Project #3: Replace Your Entry Door
Your entry door is a focal point of your home. It makes a lasting impression and can do wonders for your curb appeal. If you're having issues with your current door such as sticking replacement might be a bright idea to get a better value.
There are hundreds of options available today to create a custom entry door. Choose a color to complement your curb appeal, and don't forget to add decorative options such as transom windows and your favorite paint or stain.

Project #4: Add Attic Insulation
Attic insulation is critical for temperature control in your home. Not to mention, the newest Cost vs. Value report states that attic insulation (fiberglass) offers a whopping 107.7% return on investment on a national level meaning this upgrade can actually help you make money.
