Taking steps towards increasing the value of your home is a smart financial decision as a homeowner. Increasing the overall value of your home can be achieved in a variety of ways over time, but it can also depend on factors such as your home’s location and the state of the economy.
The steps you can take to increase the value of your home that are under your control, however, are making home remodeling upgrades that have been proven to pay out when it comes time to sell your home. Below are the best ways to increase the value of your home when undergoing a home remodel.
Energy efficient appliances will amount to savings on your energy bill, which is an attractive selling point for buyers. Energy Star appliances like dishwashers, washers, and dryers, will use less water and require less energy to run than your dated appliances. An appliance refresh might help your interior look more up to date as well.
Shining up your curb appeal with some power washing, landscaping, a fresh coat of exterior paint or replacing your front door will pay dividends when you sell your home. The exterior is the first thing a potential buyer sees, from the moment they pull up to your house from the street. Curb appeal should be manicured and make a good first impression.
Updated Kitchen and Bathroom
It’s no surprise that buyers love to gawk over beautifully renovated kitchens and bathrooms, with high quality materials and nice finishes. When undergoing a home remodel, kitchen and bathroom remodels will pay off in the long run by increasing the value of your home.
Add Square Footage
Adding more livable square footage will add value to your home by expanding the number of rooms and footprint of the home. Refinishing your basement, or investing in a dormer, extension or addition will create more space for buyers who are looking for a spacious home.
A fresh coat of paint gives your home the makeover it needs to transform from dull, into a modern home overnight. Such a simple fix can change the entire visual appearance of the interior of your home.
