Are you planning on selling your home in the next few years? You may be thinking about getting marble countertops and brand new appliances to make your home seem more attractive to prospective buyers. However, before you spend your money on these expensive upgrades, it’s worth considering what upgrades will have the greatest effect with the smallest expenditure. You can easily increase your home value without having to go bankrupt in the process! A magazine called “Remodeling” has been tracking the value of different types of home upgrades since 2002. Here are some of the top results that will get you the most bang for your buck.
The best home improvements are ones that are low-maintenance and that will last for a long time. Replacing your siding with new vinyl siding is a great way to increase your home value. The outside of your home will give buyers their first impression. A home that is decked out with new vinyl siding looks clean and neat. Plus, vinyl siding is easy to clean and extremely low-maintenance. Prospective buyers will see a home that is well-cared for and that will be easy for them to continue maintaining in the future.
The return on investment of a kitchen upgrade isn’t as high as other home improvements, but when you are selling your home, it makes a big difference. The kitchen is the heart of the home, which is why so many people choose to update their kitchens. A new kitchen makes a home look much more desirable. In fact, 82% of homeowners reported that after having a kitchen upgrade, they felt like spending more time at home.
New Front Door
Just like new siding, a new front door helps your home make a good first impression. Plus, a new front door is often safer and seals better, which saves you, and future homeowners, a lot of money. A secure front door is especially appealing to prospective buyers who have children. Installing a new front door is also less costly than other home upgrades, and it will make your home much more appealing as well as increase your home value.
