How to increase the value of your home. 
Home Value increase
How do you increase the value of your home  with updates that buyers are looking for?  If you are planning to sell your house within the next 3-6 months, there are certain things you can do right now that will increase the value of your house and make it possible to get buyers interested once the house is in the market. Depending on the budget available, there are a few options:
- Kitchen: An updated kitchen is very attractive to buyers. Depending on the budget available, it can be a total kitchen update from new cabinets, new appliances, and updated countertops. If working with a limited budget, there are some updates that can be done to increase the value. For example, refinishing cabinets can have an impact on the value of the home. Several home improvement stores carry refinishing products that cost less than $300 and this is a simple weekend project. Additionally, changing the cabinet knobs also give a more updated look.
- Bathroom: Attract buyers with fresh updated bathrooms by painting with neutral colors, changing lighting, updating flooring with ceramics tiles, changing sink fixtures, and adding accessories. This update can be done in a weekend for under $500 depending on how many bathrooms are in the house. If there is a master bath, concentrate more effort there especially when working within a limited budget.
- Painting. Nothing brightens a house than a fresh coat of paint. Keep the color neutral. If working with a limited budget, paint the main living area.
- Exterior: Change the outside lighting, change or replace the front mat to provide a welcoming feeling to buyers. Also, keep vegetation neatly trimmed.
- Landscape: Many buyers can decide on a house just from the condition of the landscape. It is very important the landscape is well kept. Nothing fancy is needed, but make sure the grass is not overgrown, and that there are no weeds around the house.
These updates can increase home value once ready to your put the house in the market.
