Upgrades To Boost Your Home's Value


Are you looking to sell your home within the next few years, maybe even the next few months? Before you go ahead and put your house on the market, there are a few things you can upgrade to boost the value of your home. Why wouldn’t you want to spend a little now to get a lot in return later?

The biggest house isn’t always the hottest house on the market. However, that doesn’t mean that increased square footage is not important. Having a basement is always a plus, but having a finished one is exactly what potential buyers love to see. A finished basement allows the buyer to use this open space however they see fit (office space, play room, etc.)

Many potential buyers will look at the kitchen and the bathrooms under close scrutiny. One of the hottest upgrades for 2016 is to upgrade your bathtub/shower combo to a walk-in shower. This is especially true for those over the age of 50 who no longer want to lift their legs up to step into the shower. Many people also don’t want to sit as close to the floor when they’re on the toilet. So consider installing new high-efficiency comfort-height toilets.

Upgrading your HVAC system’s thermostat can help cut down on the monthly energy bill. Newer thermostats can more accurately read the current temperature, allow for zone cooling and heating to be set up, and let’s the user control it from a smartphone away from the house. With all of these cost-saving features, it doesn’t make sense not to upgrade the thermostat.

With just a few simple upgrades your home’s value can skyrocket, which will leave you with more money when you decide to sell.
