Increasing The Value of Your Lexington MA Home

Thinking of selling your Lexington home?

If you want to increase your value here are some small projects that can result in a big value.

Surprising, increasing the value of your home can be simple and inexpensive:

Clean up your yard by planting flowers to give added curb appeal.

If your carpet is worn, replace it.

If you have hardwood floors beneath the carpet, remove the carpet and have them refinished.

Repaint your interior walls in a neutral color to make your rooms appear brighter.

Make sure that your kitchen, bathroom and garage are protected by GFI breakers, if they are not, install GFI outlets.

Use floor lamps for light instead of overhead lights.

This is probably the most important tip: Make sure your home smells clean and is sparkling. Unkept homes are much less likely to sell.

Want to Go The Extra Mile ?

Add a few architectural details to your home such as moldings and wainscoting.

Refinish or paint the kitchen cabinets.

Install a new counter top.

Update the front and back doors to energy efficient doors.

Replace any interior doors that are worn or outdated.

Adding a deck is a great way to add value to your home.
