Whether you’re planning to stay in your home for many years to come, or hoping to soon “flip” it and earn a tidy profit, real estate is one of the biggest investments most of us ever make. So as you consider remodeling the structure, it makes sense to weigh the potential impact upon the home’s value.
If you can’t remodel the entire house, inside and out, these following five projects generally offer the most bang for your buck.
Choose new siding or a stone veneer. For prospective buyers, the outside of the home makes the first impression. Updating the siding or stone veneer will instantly make the entire structure more attractive, and gives the impression of a well cared-for property as well.
New garage doors. If your home’s garage faces the street, replacing the doors is one of the simplest and most effective ways to update its curb appeal. Adding updated features also lends more function to your garage.
Rejuvenate the kitchen. The best kitchens are a marriage of style and function. Unfortunately, too many older kitchens lack both! Considering the kitchen in one of the most important rooms in a house, remodeling it can make a major impression on potential buyers.
Update a bathroom. Bathrooms are another room intended to be a perfect blend of form and efficiency. Nothing ages a home more than wallpaper from bygone decades or old and unattractive fixtures. If your bathroom is outdated or lacks crucial function, an update is in order.
Replace the front door. If you need something simple, quick, and more affordable to freshen up your home’s curb appeal, switch out the front door! Consider color, style, and security when making your choice.
If your home needs rejuvenation, call us to discuss your redesign ideas. We can help you choose a project that increases your own enjoyment of the home, that can also add value to the property for years to come.
