These Renovations Increase Home Value
Are you thinking about renovating your home? When making such a big financial decision, it’s important to consider how your renovation will affect your overall home value. Making smart choices will help you get the best return on investment when it’s time to sell. Here are a few areas of your home you may want to consider for your renovation.
Open up the floor plan. Open floor plans are highly desirable and are a great way to modernize and add natural light to your home. Removing walls helps create the illusion that your home is larger, and makes the overall flow great for entertaining.
Update your kitchen. A kitchen remodel is a great way to improve the overall appearance and add value to your home. When planning a kitchen remodel, it’s important to keep materials in mind. High-end finishes may not always recoup their value depending on your home, but new appliances, updated counters, and cabinets can go a long way.
Update your bathrooms. Old and outdated bathrooms can be a big turn off for potential buyers. Even small, budget-friendly updates like new tile, new paint, or a new vanity can give the space new life and bring it into this decade.
Upgrade your curb appeal. The exterior of your home is one of the first things potential buyers see. They typically decide whether or not they’ll like your home based on the few seconds they pull up to your driveway. To enhance the look of your yard, make sure the driveway and sidewalks are clean, level, and free of cracks. The lawn should be well maintained, and it always helps to have a small garden to add some color.
Add a deck. With all the beauty here in Alaska, a deck is a great feature that increases your living space while allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors. Add a unique feature, like a bench or fire pit, to bring attention to the area and make your home stand out.
