How can a real estate agent actually affect the value of your home?
Well, how an agent presents and markets your home affects how a potential buyer perceives its value. If you were to advertise your for-sale home as For Sale By Owner, buyers would think that they’d get a discount on your home; selling on your own means you typically won’t get top dollar compared to what you could get with a strong agent.
"Buyers are going to choose the listing that gives them a better feel and experience."
Here’s an example to help explain what I mean. Suppose I had two $20 bills—one was crisp and smooth, and the other one was crumpled and dirty looking. Which one would you choose? They’re worth the same amount and you can use them for the same things. But one of them fits in your wallet be ...

What are some great improvements to make to your bathroom? The first step is to look at the major issues that buyers will notice immediately. Then you can move on to other projects that add value.
1. Replace carpeted flooring. Carpet stands out—people don’t want carpet to get wet and end up moldy. Builders put carpet in because it’s cheap, but you should install another type of flooring such as tile.

2. Expand shower space. Large showers are very popular, and bathtubs are not as desirable right now. Though some people feel a tub is a must-have, generally you get more value from having a larger shower rather than a shower/tub combo.

3. Change the wall surroundings in the shower. Marble is fairly standard, but putting in tile or another upgraded material is preferred.

4. Shower extr ...

Today I’m coming to you from one of our home projects to show you some examples of ways to increase value in your kitchen with simple updates. You can see before-and-after photos of the project in the video above.
1. Expand. At the house in question, we weren’t able to knock out walls in the galley kitchen, which is very narrow. However, if you can open up your kitchen and connect it more to the family and/or great room, it will add quite a bit of value.

2. Updating the countertops and cabinets. These are a bit more expensive to change, but replacing outdated items in these areas can give your kitchen more value. Cabinet hardware is a good, low-cost way to boost value, as well.

3. Upgrade your lighting. Simply switching your light bulbs to LEDs can better illuminate the kitchen, making it look bright ...

Many people in today’s market are refinancing their homes and pulling equity out so they can afford upgrades. As a result, one of the most common questions I’m getting right now is: Which renovations increase my home’s value the most?

The kitchen and bathroom areas will give you the most bang for your buck, and in the video above, I’ve provided several slides of renovations that I’ve been a part of to help demonstrate some basic tips you can apply to your home.

First, open up your kitchen as much as possible. For example, the kitchen at 0:59 could be improved by removing the walls that separate it from the living room. You can also add more counter space or an island with bar seating. Other options include refurbishing the cabinets, replacing appliances, and refinishing the floors.

How Accurate Is Zillow When It Comes to Home Values?

Zillow can tell you what your home is worth instantly, but is that number accurate?

A lot of people want to know whether or not Zillow can give them an accurate estimate of their home’s value. Although it can give you a good starting point, more often than not the price will be inaccurate and come in higher than the home’s actual market value. The reason is that they want to get more clicks to their site and the higher the value it shows, the more often you’re going to visit their site.

One thing that Zillow doesn’t take into consideration is any of the improvements or upgrades you’ve made to your home. If there is anything unique about your home, it’s not going to show up on Zillow.
 

Your home’s uniqueness won’t be accounted for by Zillow.

 
The best way to get a value of your home is to have a real estat ...
