Painting your front do and doing a little landscaping don’t seem like major changes, but the are an easy way to add value to your home. You can also improve your home's energy efficiency, which will save you money now and increase your home's value. Don't forget to clean up your yard and the exterior of your home, which helps with a buyer's first impression of your home.

 

A fresh coat of paint throughout your home is inviting to a perspective buyer. Keep your colors neutral so your home will appeal to more of the population. Your AAA membership offers a 25% discount off PPG paints and 15% off supplies to make the cost of painting much more affordable. Do not forget to paint your front door, too. 

 

Clean up your front yard. It not only makes it look nice for you, it will also add value to your home. Trim those overgrown bushes and put out fresh mulch. Add shrubs and plants for more curb appeal. Place colorful pots at your entryway to attract attention. These inexpensive options make a huge impact. If you are in hurry to move, plant trees with the future in mind. Plant smaller, more affordably sized trees in places where they will offer future shade. Shade can also reduce your home's cooling costs in the future, making it a great selling point.

A home with a security system is another great feature to add value to your home. Although they can be expensive to install, a monitored home is a huge deterrence for a would-be burglar.  

 

For a little more money, consider replacing old, worn out carpeting in your home. Hidden allergens may be a put-off for prospective buyers. Bathrooms and kitchen remodels are expensive but are the top things a buyer is looking for in today's market. Consider making minor renovations, if a whole re-do is out of reach.
