1. Paint the Interior Walls

Painting your home’s interior walls is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase the value of your home. One study revealed that painting the interior of a home has a return of 107 percent in some locations.

When choosing a paint color, stick to tones that are neutral and warm. Some of the best interior colors include beiges, tans and grays.

2. Give the Kitchen a Facelift

If you hire a real estate agent, speak with them about the benefits of giving your kitchen a makeover. The kitchen is often the first place that buyers look, and you want to be absolutely sure that it is the perfect blend of form and function.
