Home remodeling can be expensive, depending on the project. Here is a few simple tricks you can do to increase the value of your home without killing your budget.   

Improve Your Homes Curb Appeal. Sprucing up the front yard is an easy way to get the attention of home buyers. Replace your street numbers, clean the windows, touch up chipping paint. Trim back those unruly shrubs, get rid of old lawn ornaments, toys, tools, and debris that is cluttering the lawn. Just little things like placing a pot of flowers on the front step or planting flowers or shrubbery.

Give Your Kitchen Cabinets a Facelift. The kitchen is the most important room in the house, so it needs to make an impression. Consider replacing the hardware, something simple and modern. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way, stick to white or light neutral colors.

Dedicate Time to De-Cluttering Your Home. Clutter can be an distraction for the potential home buyers, they want to be able to envision their things in your home. Pack things up in storage boxes and place them in the attic or storage unit. Maintain a system for filing your papers, reduce the number of toys laying around the house.
