Whether you’re planning to ultimately sell your home, upgrade a rental property, or just give yourself a nicer place to live, you may be looking for ways to increase your home’s value. You’re not alone! A surprising number of homeowners work on upgrading their houses for their own benefit and for better value when they eventually sell the house.
Boosting your home’s value rarely, if ever, consists of the same step-by-step process every time. Each home is different, and different buyers will look for different features. But there are a few particular additions that are all but guaranteed to help. As you plan your home’s upgrade project, keep these especially popular additions in mind.
Plenty of interested buyers would love a home with a brand new swimming pool! What better way to beat the Houston heat? Advertise that custom pool in your backyard to drum up interest and get a better value out of the final selling price.
Pro Tip: Pools with custom features will get particular interest from potential home buyers. Make your pool as unique as your family!
Bathroom & Kitchen Upgrades
Since families will spend a good amount of time in the kitchen or bathrooms of their new house, one especially appealing form of home renovation is to upgrade one or both areas. Few people will be excited about buying a home just to do time-consuming, expensive renovations on it in such crucial areas as the bathrooms and kitchen. Why not save them the time and earn a little extra for yourself in the meantime? Enjoy your newly renovated downstairs and make sure to advertise it when the time comes to sell!
Outdoor Living Area
For a truly unique backyard asset to advertise, add an outdoor kitchen or patio cover. Not only will this allow you and any future homeowners to enjoy the outdoors in comfort, but it will also feature as a less common addition to the backyard that buyers will be interested in. Backyard party space is always a plus.
Ready to Sell Your Home?
Increasing your home’s value may seem like a daunting task, but you don’t have to tackle all these projects at once. And remember that in the meantime, you’re still living there! Pick upgrades that will both provide a return on investment and prove useful to your family in the meantime. Take full advantage of that new pool or newly upgraded kitchen while you’re still there!
