Home Renovations That Add Value To Your Home
Dated: July 15 2021
Renovating your home can make your home more enjoyable, and if done right, increase your home’s value along the way. But not all renovations are created equal! While some projects can add significant value to your home, others can actually reduce the sale price. Knowing what renovations will yield the highest return for the money is key so that when it comes time to sell, you can demand a higher price. Ultimately, you'll want to make the best home improvements to add value to your home. So what renovations offer the biggest impact on a home's value? Here are some of the best home renovations that will raise the value of your home.
1. Build an additional room
As your family grows, why shouldn't your home? Consider building an addition to add major value to your home plus increase square footage. Maximize your investment by selecting the perfect materials and details to enhance your home's value and character.
2. Redo Your Kitchen
The kitchen is such an important aspect to any home! So remodeling it is of top priority. Remodeling a kitchen can be exciting and satisfying, especially when it's designed to meet your needs and desires. Update the kitchen with new appliances such as wine refrigerators, drawer-style microwaves and dishwashers, commercial-style ranges, and hidden outlets.
3. Renovate the Bathroom
Just like the kitchen, the bathroom is a major selling point for any home. When renovating, incorporate sleek surfaces for a sparkling space that makes cleaning a cinch. It’s also important to note that if a home has only one bathroom or at most a one and a half bathroom, adding a shower to a half bath, or adding a half bath to a living area for guests immediately improves the appraised value of a home.
4. Update Your Home’s HVAC
Your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) are the components that keep your home operating. These are some of the most critical items in your home to maintain. Buyers are often taken aback when upon inspection, a home’s heater, air conditioner, and roof, are found to be old or in poor shape, so it’s important to update this.
5. Spruce Up Your Outdoor Living Space
Nothing beats the option of entertaining outdoors! An outdoor living space will make your home a relaxing destination for get-togethers and add major value. No matter your budget, there are plenty of ways to update your backyard, porch, or patio.
