Boost Your Value
With the proliferation of DIY projects out there, it can be easy to get caught up in the hype of wanting to make a change to your home that will build equity and deciding that you can easily tackle the project all on your own. When it comes to effectively accomplishing your goal to build home equity, however, you’ll seriously want to consider the advantages that hiring a professional custom home builder or home remodeling contractor will bring. They’ll come equipped with ideas on which projects will actually build equity in a home, and they’ll have the knowledge and expertise to make sure that everything is done right from beginning to end.
Changes Add Up
So which areas will actually build equity? Kitchens top that list, as most buyers focus on the kitchen when they come into a home. They look at things like the layout as well as the finishings and fixtures, so if you want a great way to add instant value in your home, consult with a kitchen remodeling contractor and discuss the best ways to spice things up in your kitchen.
Raise the Floor to Raise the Price
Hardwood flooring is another great way to build equity. Many home buyers prefer to see homes on the market with hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas and often even the bedrooms rather than carpeting, so hiring a professional to change out flooring will be an instant boost in value when it comes time to put your home on the market. It may seem like a simple enough task to do on your own; but if the floors are not level or the sub-floor has been improperly installed, that added value could turn into a loss.
Tap Into Bigger Returns
A remodel of the bathroom will make a great splash, as well. By retiling the floors, adding walk-in showers, and changing out vanities to include updated cabinetry and dual sinks, buyers will see the investment you’ve made and be more willing to pay top dollar for your home. And while you’re at it, consider how much more bang you’ll get fro your buck by adding an extra bathroom to the ones you already have. That bonus bath may seem like an expensive project, but if you hire a bath remodeling contractor, the benefits will far outweigh the cost.
Other great ways to reimagine your home and build equity are by adding decks to the exterior, installing new energy efficient windows, and fixing any electrical or plumbing issues that could make the listing price of your home look questionable to a buyer.
