5 House Upgrades To Get The Best Value For Your Dollar
The wonderful thing about a home renovation is that you get to enjoy a freshly restored space and potentially boost your home’s resale value at the same time. While every renovation project greatly improves the condition of a home, certain house upgrades will prove more valuable down the road when it’s time to sell.
If you’re interested in doing a remodel, we’ve curated some ways you can get the most value for your dollar.
Here are 5 house upgrades to increase your home’s value:
A finished basement
If a home addition just isn’t in the cards and you want to ensure every existing room is habitable – finish your basement. Create a space that’s welcoming and lighten up the area to avoid that typical dark and cramped feeling. You could experiment with a bar, office, media room, or playroom for the kids. What’s more, if you have the space, consider adding another bathroom to really boost your home’s value.
Ample natural light
Whether you’re working with a large or small space, sometimes the layout of your home just doesn’t work in the sun’s favor. Natural light has the ability to really open up a home, giving it a much more spacious appearance. If your home is compartmentalized, try knocking down some walls or installing a skylight. Open floor plans that bring in natural light are exceedingly popular among home-buyers.
A work from home space
Because we live in a digital world, more and more individuals are staying home to work remotely. A great way to entice home-buyers is by converting a bedroom or basement into a home office. A visibly designated workspace with ample outlets is a great selling point and will work in your favor.
It’s not unusual that home-buyers will have something to say about an outdated bathroom, a bathroom’s size, or the fact that there are just not enough of them. A bathroom remodel shows a tremendous return for your costs. Updating your amenities and fixtures will go a long way, but don’t forget about outdated plumbing and what’s going on behind the scenes. Adding another bathroom will also give you a competitive edge if homes in your neighborhood traditionally only have a certain number.
This is probably one of the most popular renovations and the costliest. However, this is a huge selling point for home-buyers. If they look at your kitchen and see that it already has all the bells and whistles, they’ll know it’s a future expense they won’t have to tackle any time soon. Updated countertops, a kitchen island for more counter space, a renovated backsplash, and upgraded appliances will surely entice home-buyers.
