Simple home improvements that can boost a property's price

Posted on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 3:03:53 PM

As the national housing market continues to show repeated signs of strengthening, many current homeowners may begin to consider trading up to a larger house. While consumers may look to increase their home's resale value through a number of intensive projects, a number of smaller updates can achieve the same outcome in half the time and at a fraction of the cost.

For consumers who have secured residential financing for large home repairs, or have saved the required funds, these quick projects can see both the price and aesthetic appeal of a house appreciate. 

Refresh kitchen, bathroom tiles
While homeowners can easily clean tile surfaces in their often-used rooms, dirt often causes discoloration in the grout. Carefully cleaning the material with a special bleaching agent, or replacing the grout can give the room a fresh appearance.

Resurface hardwood floors
Out of an entire residential home, the floor is probably used the most. Homeowners who sand, and refinish their hardwood floors can enjoy an improved look and feel, as well as a heightened home value.

While these updates may be possible for a homeowner to complete themselves, larger projects should be done by qualified professionals. Home Loan Investment Bank can help consumers make the necessary modifications to their property with the assistance of home improvement financing.
