Upgrades That Add Value to Your Home

There are some upgrades that improve the value of your home when you get ready to sell it. There are a whole lot more upgrades that do little or nothing to improve the market value of your home. If you are considering some home improvements, I am available to be your “value” resource. I can help you analyze what will help you sell your home later on. And I can help you understand what improvements will just improve your quality of life but do nothing to help you sell your home later

FYI – There is nothing wrong with adding a pool or spa or that crazy wine cellar you always wanted. Just don’t justify it by adding what you spend to the potential future sales value of your home.

  REACH YOUR GOALSFive Value-Adding Home Remodeling Projects When it comes to remodeling, not all projects have the same return on investment
When it comes to remodeling, not all projects have the same return on investment. Which projects should homeowners consider before listing their home for sale? Here’s a look at five areas where you may get the most bang for your buck:

Refinish hardwood floors

Refresh the entire look of your home with newly refinished floors that cost, on average, $2,500 and increase a home’s value by nearly the same amount. Add new wood floors

Replacing carpeted areas with wood flooring can raise the value by as much as $5,000. 

Upgrade insulation – While this may not be obvious during an initial viewing, updating the insulation in attics and walls can increase a home’s value by as much as $2,000. 

Install a new HVAC system – Energy-saving improvements, like a new HVAC system, add value while providing lasting peace of mind. You may be able to obtain a tax deduction, too. 

Increase your living space– Converting a basement into a livable space can increase the value of a home by as much as $25,000.
