But once these are done, there is still plenty you can do on a small budget to increase the value of your home dramatically! Here is a list of the top four DIY projects that can improve your house value.

Remember that your front yard is your way of telling buyers that you took great pride in the home. Working with edges can create clear lines that immediately make a positive impression.

#2. Cozy Living Room

Create a sense of coziness in the living room. For this, you will need to use warm and colorful cushions on the couch to create a feeling of being warm. Additionally, a scented candle will subtly change the ambiance of the room, so pick something soothing such as lavender or jasmine. If your house has a fireplace, do try to have a fire going during the visits as this will enhance the general coziness of the place. If you don’t have a fireplace, you might want to consider the addition of an electric alternative that will create the same impression of warmth.
