Your home is likely to be your biggest and the most expensive investment of your life. You obviously want this investment to pay off well for you now and in the future.

If you plan to live in your home, you'll make the necessary additions to make it a safe and comfortable place to live. On the other hand, if you see it as an investment that will bring big rewards when you sell it in the future, you need to bring in the necessary changes to make it more attractive.

So, regardless of the purpose, you need to bring in the necessary changes to boost the livability and/or the value of your home. Let's look at a few simple extra add-ons that can significantly add to your home value.

Change the color and theme of your rooms

To add a personalized touch to every room, give it a color you like the most. If you plan to sell it, paint in the most neutral colors possible to make it appealing to prospective buyers. According to a 2017 survey, more than two-thirds of real estate agents recommend giving a home a few coats of paint before it comes to the market for sale.

Yard and landscape

A beautiful and well-maintained landscape speaks volumes about the owner. It will make the house more livable and can instantly fetch you the right price if you're planning to sell it. In fact, a well-manicured lawn and yard are hard to miss for prospective buyers as they walk into your home for the first time. It creates a big positive impression of the house that in turn, can lead to a quick sale.

Wall Safes

When you build in wall safes, it sure adds to the appeal of your home. These wall safes come in different sizes and themes to match the decor of your home and at the same time, gives a safe place for you as well as the future homeowners to keep their important documents in a safe and secure place. This is why a simple addition such as wall safes can significantly boost the value of your home.

Energy efficiency

Everyone likes to save money, especially on recurring expenses like their utility bills. So, if you have made your home energy efficient, then undoubtedly it will fetch a higher price for you in the market. Most times, your energy efficiency can be a big selling point and it can even help your house to sell quickly. As a bonus, you can even get tax credits from the government for making your home more energy efficient.

In fact, one of the simplest change you can make is to replace your old windows with energy efficient ones. The added advantage is it can show your home in a whole new light, provided you choose the right design.

Thus, these are some of the extra add-ons that can significantly boost the market value of your home and can help you to sell it off quickly.
