Consider These Home Improvement Options Before You List Your Home!

Are you considering selling your home in the new year? Have you been in your current home for a while? Then it may seem tired and out-dated. If your house is 10-20 years old, it may be time to do some home renovations or simple updates to increase the profitability of selling the home and attracting more buyers.

One of the first things a buyer sees is the outside of your home. Make sure that the roof is in good shape with no leaks or ugly shingles. Simple repairs can be done, but an inspection can help determine if it needs total replacement. The same goes for the siding and shutters of the house. These may be damaged and need replacement or just need a face-lift with new paint. A new color palette can breath new life into the exterior and interior of a home.

The interior part of the home is equally as important. Some of the older homes do not have open floor plans like the newer homes of today. One thing that homeowners can do to increase the appeal of their property is open up the house to create more of a flow and enhance natural light. Consider knocking down some walls to brighten up a space. An open floor plan will also make a home feel much larger and is better for entertaining.

One of the main areas to consider updating is the kitchen. Updating this area of the home can increase the value of your home. Things such as updated appliances, a larger window over the sink, or new cabinets can add a lot of appeal. Today’s kitchens are the hub of the home and renovating it gets a bigger sale price!

Another important part of a home are the bathrooms. If the bathroom are very outdated, it will be a big turn off to potential buyers. Updating bathroom amenities and fixtures or adding an additional bathroom if you have the space can really increase a home’s appeal. A bathroom remodel is a smaller, affordable remodeling project that can have a great impact on your everyday life. From updating tired fixtures to adding more storage to creating a relaxing haven, any changes you make to your bathroom are guaranteed to improve the daily routine of busy families.

Need more room in your home? Remodeling the basement is a cost-effective way to greatly expand your home’s living space. If you don’t have enough space to add a room to your home, basement space can easily be turned into a playroom for the kids, a bar, or media room, relatively easily. Consider adding a bathroom if you do remodel the basement, as this can increase the value of the remodel even more. Try to keep the space as open as possible so it does not feel dark and cramped.

Don’t forget the outdoor space as a potential to upgrade or update. Turning outdoor space into usable living space is in high demand. Consider adding a deck or patio for outdoor living spaces. If you choose to install a deck, take some time to plan it out and come up with unique features such as built in benches or a fire pit if your city or town allows them. Use higher grade material to extend the life of the deck.

All these home improvement ideas will add value to your home and make it a more updated home for today’s busy lifestyles and making it more appealing to buyers. You will enjoy your home even more while you are there. If you need home remodeling assistance, call http://georgiainterior.com/

 

 

 

What our clients are saying

Construction Tips

Licensed and Insured. The last thing you want is a remodeler to be working on your property, only to find out they don't have the proper insurance or aren't licensed to do the work, because if something goes wrong or someone is hurt at a work site, you could be held liable for the damages. Make sure that the remodeler you choose has ample worker's compensation, property damage, and personal liability coverage.

References. The best way to ascertain if the remodeler you choose is skilled and competent enough to do the job is to ask for and verify a list of references consisting of past customers that you can contact. Customers that get what they paid for and who are happy with the job your remodeler has done for them are usually only too happy to provide an endorsement on the remodeler's work. Choose me, and before long you'll be on our reference list!
