3) Paint the House:

Average Cost: $3,000
Does your home look like it could use some serious TLC? Does chipping or fading paint sound familiar? It’s time for a change, and yes, vinyl siding sounds great, but comes with a hefty price tag. It’s okay, you don’t have to be the neighborhood eyesore forever- you have other options. Give your home a fresh coat of paint. Your house will look brand spanking new before you know it.

5) Fixture Fixation

Go fixture crazy! Update every faucet and shower head in your entire home. That doesn’t just mean in the bathrooms, I’m talking the kitchen, bathrooms, basement, laundry room, and any other place that has some hardware that could use some updating. Fixtures aren’t that expensive, so $5,000 will easily deck out your home with some shiny new hardware.

    Another useful tip for improving the value of your home is to consider conversions – either of lofts or basements. While these property improvements are quite a bit more expensive than those listed above, the return on investment tends to make them well worthwhile.
