How to Boost Your Alaska Home Value Before Spring

Temperatures may still be low here in Alaska, but that doesn't mean that the real estate market takes a dive along with them! The market is only beginning to heat up for the warmer months ahead and if you're planning to sell your home in Palmer, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Wasilla, North Pole, or Eagle River this spring, now is the time to work toward increasing your value!

Below are three ways you can increase your home value before spring:

Replace appliances
For buyers making their way from renting to homeownership, shiny, new appliances can be just the hook they need to move forward with an offer. Replacing one or all of your appliances with more energy-efficient models can also be a great buyer attraction for the cost savings alone that they will provide!

Add smart technology
You've likely seen digital thermostats by now and may have even found yourself intrigued by them— the same goes for buyers in the spring real estate market in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, North Pole, and Wasilla! Adding smart technology features to your home, including smartphone-run security cameras, can prompt buyers to pay more for your home than any other in the area.

Paint your bathrooms and kitchen
Paint can go a long way in terms of making a space feel fresh, open, and updated. But before you reach for the neutral colors as you've heard appeal to the majority of buyers, instead grab a can of blue! Homes with blue kitchens ultimately sold for $1,800 more than those without, according to Zillow's Paint Color Analysis of over 30,000 sold properties. You can also bring the blue hues into the bathroom as the analysis also found that homes with blue bathrooms sold for $5,400 more. 

Increasing your home value in Alaska can only help you when you list your property and as your local real estate experts, we're here to make the process run as smoothly as possible.
