10 DIY Ways to Increase Your Home's Value

When you are selling your home in Metro New Orleans, it's important to make your home look its best. Home buyers judge properties based on appearance and online listing photos, which is why home staging is crucial.

These easy, low-cost strategies will make your Metro New Orleans home look more appealing to potential buyers, which will ultimately help you sell your home for the right price.

The Essential Home Staging Tips 

1. Mow the lawn and trim the bushes, especially the ones that block your windows and diminish sunlight.
2. Purchase a new doormat.
3. Add a bright pot of flowers (or even a small evergreen in winter) on your front porch.
4. Replace any old, tarnished doorknobs on your doors and polish or replace your house numbers.
5. Power-wash your driveway, sidewalk, and the exterior siding of your home.
6. Edge the grass around walkways and trees, and add fresh mulch to your planting beds.
7. Purchase a new mailbox.
8. Upgrade the outdoor lighting for a feeling of safety and to add dramatic effect; buyers drive by your home at night, too.
9. Clean your gutters.
10. Place a seasonal wreath on your front door.
