Home Improvement / January 15, 2021
If you own a home, you’re likely aware that any changes you might make to your home will have an effect on its resale value. That means you shouldn’t make any home improvements lightly, or you’ll come to regret it. It also means that there are several things you can do that will both improve your quality of life and the value of your home. Read on to learn about a few of them.
Many homes — especially older ones — have fewer bathrooms than what are often considered necessary. If you’re short a bathroom, you can install a new one and recoup your expenses, and perhaps even add significantly to your home’s resale value. Look for extra or underutilized space in your home, and consider whether it can be replaced with a bathroom. All you need are 18 square feet for a half bath, and 30 to 35 square feet for a full bath with a standing shower and/or bathtub.
Many homeowners think they have to upgrade their kitchen into a full deluxe kitchen with the highest end appliances on the market, but this isn’t necessary if you want to increase the value of your home. You can get the most bang for your remodel buck by repainting the cabinets and installing new hardware. Another option is to replace your appliances with Energy Star-rated models. This will modernize your kitchen, while making your home more appealing to buyers.
You shouldn’t be living with older, inefficient windows. Make sure the windows in your home are modern, double-paned windows which provide superior insulation. Saving you up to $500 a year on home energy costs, these windows will pay for themselves even before you account for their impact on boosting your home’s value.
Home buyers love the efficient use of outdoor space. By installing a deck, you can showcase your back yard as a place for relaxing and entertaining. There’s a broad range of options when building a deck as well. You can install a relatively simple and inexpensive version, or go all out for larger and more elaborate model. Either way, you can expect a lot of that money to come back to you whenever you sell your home.
