Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home

5-26-2017
Your home is a big part of who you are and taking great care of it can be a lot of fun. Adding some unique touches to your home allows you to put your personal stamp on it and when it comes time to sell it, certain home improvements or updates can reap big returns. Here are some specific ways to increase the value of your home.

#1: Outdoor landscaping. If you have beautiful landscaping around your home, you’ll instantly add not only beauty, but curb appeal! Simple flowers can make a world of difference, as can planting trees and shrubs around the space. If you have space for a vegetable garden, not only will you be able to enjoy the bounty of fresh produce throughout the year, but you’ll also add value to your home once it comes time to sell it. If you have the space for something more extravagant, adding an outdoor kitchen that is set up to serve your family and guests. Your yard plays a big part in how people first “see” the home and little details go a long way.

#2: Smart technology upgrades. Technology upgrades are a regular part of our day to day life and our homes are now commonly getting technology upgrades too. For example, programmable thermostats are a great option for energy-savvy homeowners. These thermostats can be programmed to turn the thermostat off or on at certain parts of the day, depending on what you need and when you plan to use it. For instance, when you’re at work during the day, program the thermostat to turn off. When you’re asleep, program it to turn on to an energy-saving mode/temperature that will readjust itself when you wake up.

#3: Paint. Does the outside of your home need a facelift and greater curb appeal? Paint can transform the outside of your house and spring is a great time to get it done, because the weather is cooler. While you’re at it, paint some or all of the rooms inside of your home, too. New paint can revitalize a room, making it feel fresh and new.
