Not all home improvement projects are created equal. Some renovations may cost a lot but not add significant value to your home. This list goes in the opposite direction: Here are some inexpensive home improvement projects that will not only increase your enjoyment of your home, but will also increase the home’s value.
High quality ceiling fans:In a recent National Association of Home Builders survey, ceiling fans ranked No. 1 as the most-wanted decorative item. If your ceiling fans are outdated, replace them with something in the $400 range—it’ll make a big difference when it’s time to sell.
Trees:Mature trees can be worth as much as $10,000 toward the value of your home. Trees also protect your home from the elements and prevent erosion.
Energy efficiency:Buyers are increasingly interested in saving energy, so any efficiency update is worthwhile. Switching from a wood to gas fireplace is a great start.
Outdoor lighting:Exterior lighting is great for highlighting the accents of your home, and you can typically expect a 50 percent return on investment.
Molding:You can finish a room with crown molding or railing for as little as $1.50 per foot if you take a DIY approach, and it’s extremely desirable among prospective buyers.

When it came time to shop for houses in person, she was with us every step of the way! We felt that our interests were protected and now we live in our dream home! Every detail was met by her – even had housewarming gifts for us when we arrived at our new home."
