In our last blog, we discussed a few easy home improvements that will tremendously increase your home’s value. Today, we’re focusing on more home improvements that will increase your home’s value without costing you and arm and a leg. Read on to learn how you can easily and cost-efficiently upgrade your home.
Add Mouldings for a Finishing Touch
If you’re getting a kitchen remodel, definitely consider mouldings for your cabinetry. Mouldings are the wooden borders on the tops or bottoms of cabinetry. They’re a classic touch that make a kitchen look sophisticated and elegant. According to an annual survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), mouldings and chair railings rank #3 and #7 respectively of the most desirable decorative features that home buyers look for. Mouldings are inexpensive and come in a huge variety of styles and colors. Adding them to your cabinetry is an easy and inexpensive way to make your home look more appealing to buyers.
Any energy-efficient upgrades are appealing to potential home buyers, since they know they’ll save money on energy bills in the future. In fact, a recent study by UCLA shows that the value of energy-efficient homes are on the rise. In 1.6 million Californian homes that were studied between 2007 to 2012, those that were Energy Star, LEED, or GreenPoint certified were priced approximately 9 percent higher than homes without. Installing energy-efficient windows is a great way to begin making your home more energy-efficient. Our Great View windows are not only energy-efficient but also easy to clean, which makes them even more appealing to prospective buyers.
We mentioned in our last blog that new vinyl siding is one of several important home improvements because it makes your home’s exterior look neat and clean, providing that essential good first impression. In addition to getting new siding, try also getting a new front door, installing exterior lights, and planting a tree. These are all elements that will make your home so much more appealing to potential buyers, as well as add value to your home over time.
