How To Increase Resale Value of Your Home by 2K

According to HGTV, updating your living room decor can bring a 66 percent return at resale of your home. That means that every $1 you spend will increase resale value of your home by $1.66. Not bad!

In a recent article, HGTV estimated that spending about $1,350 on staging and updating living room decor will get you new light switches, outlet covers, floor registers, crown molding, chair rails and drapes, plus fresh, live flowers and accessories.

$1,350 (spent) x 1.66 (return rate) = $2,241 (value increase)

The article also shares a few tips on getting the most return on of your living room remodeling.
