Best Ways to Increase Your Home Value

So many home remodeling or renovation features add great value to homes. Luxurious bathrooms, and wide open, family-centric kitchens are more popular than ever. When adding to your home over the years, there are certain elements you can upgrade to that help increase the value of your home. This way, when you go to sell someday, you receive a proper return on your investment.

 

Kitchens & Bathrooms

Kitchens and bathrooms are number one. Millennials, baby boomers, and people of all ages are attracted to newly renovated and remodeled kitchens or bathrooms when looking for homes. The materials are everything. Include granite countertops, steel appliances, custom wooden cabinetry, and high-quality material for flooring and tile.

 

Additions

A home with an addition or a separate home attached is extremely attractive to homebuyers. Cottages, in-law apartments, additional floors, separate laundry rooms, and mudrooms are appealing and give your home that extra added-value.  

 

Going Green

The more you go green and the longer you have been green, the more attractive your home will be for potential buyers. People are looking for low energy costs and heating costs. Look into solar technology, and see if it’s right for you and your home.

 

Implement Universal Design

Including universal design in your upgrades will make your home exceptionally attractive if you want to sell. This makes your home applicable to all ages and profiles of buyers. Universal design may not seem like something you need to consider now, but if you implement universal design from the get-go, you give yourself the option to stay where you are when you cross that bridge in the future.

 

Regular Upkeep

Keeping up with fresh paint jobs, siding, fresh trim, and regular property maintenance will help to extend the overall longevity of your home. Your efforts will be widely recognizable, as your home will always have that fresh, new look, no matter what season. Extend that look years after moving into your home by keeping up with regular work, projects, and repairs. This will be worth the effort if you choose to sell your home someday.

 

Increasing your home value can come with home renovations, remodels, additions, and new features. This can benefit you while you live in your home, and really comes into play if you wish to see a return on your investments. Get going on some of these projects to this year to start increasing the value in your home now.
