Whether minimal or large, a remodeling project completed by a trusted building contractor stands to garner a sizable return when you list your home for sale. While you enjoy your property’s enhanced appearance in the present, you can attract interested buyers looking for move-in ready listings.
Below are several ways remodeling can increase your home’s value:
Increases Efficiency: Homes that go 20 years without any changes tend to feature less energy efficient appliances. Because of this, managing these properties can mean high utility bills—something a homebuyer’s inspector is sure to point out. Ensuring your home is properly sealed and well-insulated can make it more energy efficient, increasing its value while helping you cut down on your current energy consumption. Being selective about your home’s framing can also contribute to a better-insulated home and boost its market return.
Takes Care of Issues: Remodeling your home one area at a time is an excellent opportunity to address structural issues brought about by aging. You’ll have a better chance of securing offers if your property is in sound shape, as homebuyers know they won’t have to spend their time and money repairing problems once the keys are turned over to them.
Improves Functionality: Renovating and improving problem areas such as a cramped kitchen can be a wise investment for those looking to sell. A newly renovated and well-designed kitchen can be a major selling point for prospective buyers, and is something you can use as leverage when negotiating price.
