Sometimes the smallest changes in your home can add a large amount of value. If you are considering selling your home, check out these five easy and affordable ways to increase your home’s value.

A Fresh Coat of Paint – Painting can be one of the easiest and least expensive ways to change the look of your home. When painting any room in your home, try to stay with a neutral color and tone. This way your home will appeal to a wider audience. Don’t forget to touch up the trim, doors and kitchen cabinets.

Upgrade Your Window Treatments – A cardinal mistake of selling your home is using very cheap window treatments. No one wants to purchase a home with paper shades or plastic blinds. Using quality window treatments can add luxury and softness to a room. Discount stores such as Big Lots or Target offer many curtain choices for under $20.

Update Fixtures – This can be as simple as swapping out the outlet covers, curtain rods and door handles. These fixtures can help update the overall feel of the home for just a few dollars.

Add Closet Storage – Who doesn’t want more organized storage? You don’t have to knock down walls, simple shelving systems can go a long way.

Install a New Ceiling Fan – Ceiling fans are one simple way people can cut down on their bills. The fan will also help circulate air in the home.
