How To Increase The Value Of Your Home

March 9th, 2011

Homeowners often dream about all of the projects they would take on if money and time were unlimited. There are probably plenty of things you would like to improve about your home, but some of them will do little to improve your home’s overall value. If you are planning to live in your home forever or even for several decades, it probably does not matter if your improvements increase the value. If they make your space more comfortable for you, that is all that matters. However, if you are like most homeowners and you have your sights set on a move sometime in the future, the improvements you make need to be done with an eye toward the housing market and what potential buyers will be looking for. These improvements can still make your home more comfortable in the present, but they will also be wise financial choices. Examples of home improvement that boost the value of a home are home security systems or wireless home security systems. Anytime you improve the safety of your space, you are boosting what potential buyers are willing to pay.

Making upgrades to your home that are improving the energy efficiency of your home will make it very attractive to potential buyers. It will also improve your way of living because you will be saving money almost instantly. Depending on the improvements, your home may also be more comfortable. If you install higher grade windows or more insulation, your home’s temperature will be easier to control and you will pay less money in energy costs.

Aesthetic upgrades are a great way to boost value because they are often high impact. Even if an improvement does little to change the efficiency of your home, if a potential buyer enters the home and falls in love with something aesthetic, they will be willing to pay more. Aesthetic changes are often less expensive investments for you too, so the disparity between what you pay and what you recoup is greater.

Appliances are a great way to increase the value of your home because so many homeowners do not leave their appliances when they move. If you are able to offer potential buyers state of the art appliances, home buyers will be saving a bundle in cash. Instead of having to go out right after buying a new home when they might be cash strapped, they are able to move into a home that is ready to be occupied.

When trying to determine what changes will work best, evaluate what changes will make your home more comfortable and will improve the usability of your home. What frustrations do you face every day when living in your home? If you can remove these problems so future homeowners do not have to deal with them, you will be boosting your home’s value. Chances are; future homeowners will be frustrated by the same things you are. Take some time to think about what you dislike about your home and decide how to change those things to improve the value.
