Do you want to improve your home’s value? Whether you’re trying to sell your home soon or just want to make the most of your investment, there are several things you can do to improve your home’s value.
Taking the time to make your home more attractive, to improve your home’s energy efficiency, and to catch up on routine maintenance can protect your investment and make your home worth more now and in the future. Read on for ways to improve your home’s value this year.
Boosting curb appeal can make your home more attractive to buyers, which often translates to a higher resale value overall. Home buyers will pay more for a home with stunning curb appeal. Below are some practical ways to make your home more beautiful.
The major systems that make up your home’s exterior – like your siding, windows and doors – need repair and replacement from time to time. Replacing these systems can make your home look more elegant and stand out from other homes in your neighborhood while at the same time making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
If you do put your home up for sale, tell your real estate professional which systems were recently replaced. Your real estate agent will provide this information in the listing, which will be a big draw for buyers and help your home stand out from the pack.
Get rid of overgrown shrubs and unhealthy plants, and replace them with colorful flowers and plants with seasonal color. Work with a professional landscaper to achieve the best effect, or do the work on your own.
Improving your home’s energy efficiency is another way to draw in buyers if you’re trying to sell. The more efficient your home is, the more money buyers will save when they’re living in your house. Reducing operating expenses is a big plus for home buyers looking to stretch their dollars.
Cracks in your home’s foundation and unsealed seams around windows and doors can let climate controlled air out of your house, which in turn can make your heating and air conditioning systems work harder than necessary to do their jobs.
Take time to seal cracks around your house. While you’re at it, beef up the insulation in your attic, if it needs it. Not sure whether your attic needs more insulation? Have a consultation with a reliable, experienced contractor.
Replacing your home’s windows is another way to make your home more energy efficient – especially if you’re replacing your windows with award-winning windows from Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro.
