If you’re reading this blog, we’re assuming you’re already committed to the importance of investing in your home. Whether you’re in the process of building an Asheville custom home, or thinking about renovating a few rooms in your existing house, putting funds into your property is a great idea for several reasons! First off, the more you put into your home, the more you’ll enjoy it while you live there. But there’s also the added benefit of knowing that these investments pay off if you ever decide it’s time to move. This week on the blog, we’re discussing a few areas and updates we recommend in order to increase not only your quality of life in the home, but also the value of the property should you decide to sell.
INSIDE THE HOME
While every room of a home can be special, there are two areas in particular that significantly increase your home’s value: the bathroom and the kitchen. These rooms make a huge impact on potential buyers and also have a great influence on the ease and enjoyment of your day-to-day life. When you invest in a kitchen remodel, you’re nearly guaranteed to recover the majority of these costs when you choose to sell, making it easily one of the best rooms to update. While bathroom remodels don’t recover the same percentage of costs at resale as kitchens do, putting money into these rooms can truly transform the feel of your home. And remodels don’t have to mean huge construction projects, either. Merely updating the fixtures and repainting in fresh colors can give this room the attention it needs to shine.
OUTSIDE THE HOME
There are a lot of updates you can make on the exterior of your property to increase its value, but two we’d like to highlight here are investing in a new garage door, and installing a beautiful, wooden deck in the backyard. If you’re raising your eyebrows at the suggestion of getting a new garage door, we’re not surprised. This is an easily overlooked part of a home, but it can have a huge impact on the look of the property. Even more, this update is truly worthwhile, bringing with it a huge return on the money you invested into the replacement. Now that we’ve convinced you to get a new garage door, let’s talk decks.
When we think about increasing quality of life, relaxation and connection are two big aspects that come to mind. What better way to achieve both than by building an attractive deck off the back of your home? Picture summer grill outs with family and relaxing afternoons with your favorite book and a pleasant breeze. And when it comes to the money you put in, don’t worry, you’ll make a sizeable percentage of it back when you’re ready to sell!
