For most of us, our home is our most valuable asset. In a changing market, though, it can be tough to make sure the value of your home keeps up. Today’s home buyers are looking for houses that are well maintained and remain both attractive and robust. We want to help you raise the value of your home, while creating an environment for yourself that is comfortable to live in. Here are a few things we’ve found that ensure your home’s value keeps up.
Renovate thoughtfully. Almost all renovations add to the value of your home. However, you must keep in mind the cost of the renovation. Spending large amounts of money doesn’t make sense unless you get a good return on your investment.
Another thing to keep in mind when renovating is both the increase in your home’s value, and your savings. For example, replacing your home’s vinyl siding will increase the value of your home by adding a new veneer to your home, but will go beyond that. It insulates your home which keeps your energy bill low. This makes for a very good return on investment.
Hire the right contractor. When renovating your home, it is important that you can trust your renovators. Bad renovators can wreak havoc by failing to meet timelines, engaging in unprofessional behavior, and doing sub-par work, all of which cost you time and money. Use a single, reliable provider for renovation projects. If the contractor provides a warranty, that’s even better.
Focus on overall Aesthetics. Your home’s value, both to potential buyers, and for livability, depends on balance. You don’t need your home to feel expensive, but comfortable. Spending a large sum of money on a single aspect of your home, one room perhaps, may not lead to the same level of increased value that come from a project that elevates the look of your whole home. And always remember, don’t just renovate to renovate, renovate to improve.
