If you have some time to spare before you make your move, it can be worth it to put some effort into increasing your New Jersey home value before moving. Whether you want to minimize your investment by doing the work yourself, or you want to hire contractors to get the job done, a little effort now could lead to a big payoff come selling time

The folks at SeaCure (your trusted NJ moving company) have compiled a list of 3 ways to amp up the value of your home before moving!

Call A New Jersey Moving Company, and Get a Storage Quote!

Any quality NJ moving company will tell you that when potential homebuyers walk into your home, they want to see themselves in the space. And the truth is—no matter how cool your vintage train set is—the more of your things that are lying around, the less potential homebuyers can visualize moving their own things in. Your Jersey Shore home value can skyrocket if you take the simple step of removing clutter and unneeded items. This can be as easy as putting your things into storage with a local New Jersey moving company! 

Focus on Your Kitchen and Bathrooms

Things haven’t changed much—rooms with running water are the ones that have the biggest influence on what homebuyers are willing to pay in New Jersey. Home value is easy to elevate with a few small changes in your kitchen and bathroom; it’s not necessary to commit to large-scale renovation projects. You’ll see big returns on small changes such as fixing leaky faucets, replacing outdated light fixtures, staining the cupboards, modernizing hardware, and re-doing flaking caulking. Replacing your toilet with an energy efficient model is also a great way to increase Jersey Shore home value!

If You Paint it, They Will Come!

Your kids might love the lime green walls in the toy room, but chances are, potential homebuyers wont. As an experienced New Jersey moving company, we can say with certainty that a fresh (neutral!) coat of paint can make a world of difference. Some rooms will be fine with a once-over with a magic eraser, while others (your kitchen, living room, and master bedroom) would benefit from a completely fresh coat. Again, the idea is to create a neutral space that potential homebuyers can see themselves in.
