5 Inexpensive Upgrades That Can Increase Your Homes Value

Now that you know the mistakes that can decrease your home's value, it's time to turn your attention to the things that can actually make your abode worth more money in the long run.

According to Trulia, you don't have to spend a fortune on upgrades to see the value of your home increase. In fact, some of the most effective changes come in under a thousand bucks.

The real estate site recently shared its list of 10 Upgrades Under $1,000 That Increase Home Values, and while all 10 are worth consideration, these five stand out to us as the easiest to tackle (and the most aesthetically pleasing).

Just don't try to DIY it all yourself though, you just may end up regretting it.

SPIFF UP YOUR WALKWAY


Or add one, if your home doesn't already have a path leading to the front door. Walkways make guests and home buyers feel more welcome, and potential buyers are especially attracted to paths that match the style of the home, according to Trulia.

UPGRADE THE FRONT DOOR

Considering it's constantly exposed to the elements, it might be time to replace it. Even if the door itself is in good shape, a fresh coat of paint will make the entryway look much more pulled together. Hello, curb appeal.

ADD TILE FLOORING


Buyer are crazy for tile floor, especially in kitchens and bathrooms (rooms that are frequently the deciding factor when it comes time to make an offer). They're not just nice to look at, they're durable and easy to clean too, so you'll enjoy them just as much as your home's future owners.
