If you’ve been thinking about making some updates to your home, you might be considering changes that will make your home more livable or more attractive. Not all updates you consider will give you a good return on your investments, but some will. And if you’re thinking of selling in the near future, you might actually make an update that will increase your home’s value. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we have a few ideas of things that might bring back a bigger portion of what you invest. Read on!
Funding Your Upgrade
Remember that, even if you do recoup some of the value of the update when you sell the home, you still have to pay for it upfront, and many renovations or upgrades can be expensive. Check in with your financial advisor to determine the best way to fund your renovation and whether it makes sense for your pocketbook. Each of the options below come at different price points, so be sure to research carefully to understand what you might invest in.
- Update your kitchen. It can be as simple as getting a new set of appliances, refacing your cabinets, changing out the countertops or the flooring, or repainting the walls. Giving your kitchen a more modern feel will make it more appealing to a potential buyer.
- Beef up the external look. If you add new siding or put manufactured stone in your entryway, your home can have some curbside pop. You can also consider updating your garage door to drastically enhance the exterior look of your home.
- Add or enhance outdoor living space. Having a nice deck or patio can expand the living space in your entire home, making it more useful and desirable.
Updating your window coverings can also improve your home. If you choose shutters or wood/faux wood blinds, you could see your home value climb. Having new treatments can give your home a consistent look from the outside, which can appeal to a buyer and make them more eager to purchase. They might not actually increase the value of your home, but energy-efficient treatments like Duette® Honeycomb Shades or Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades can help reduce energy costs, which might, in turn, help you recoup the cost of those shades after time if you stay in the home yourself. Even if they don’t contribute directly to increasing a home’s value, new window treatments can help make a space more elegant, inviting, and luxurious, which could give your home an overall increased perceived value from a potential buyer.
