Your home is an investment that should increase in value the longer you own it. While property values fluctuate over time due to market conditions, there are many improvements you can make that will add value to your home and increase its curb appeal.
Replacing Your Roof
One of the major questions that buyers have when they are looking at a specific home is “How old is the roof?” This is because the roof not only protects your home but it can be a costly if it needs to be replaced soon after purchasing.
If you choose the right roofing contractors, investmenting in a new roof will significantly increase the curb appeal of your home and hence make it more marketable and add value to your home. This is especially true if you invest in a long-term, durable roofing materials like metal. Metal roofs not only stand up to the most harsh weather conditions, they also come in a variety of colors that complement any exterior color palette.
Updating Your Siding
Some surveys have shown that potential buyers decide whether or not they like a house within the first thirty seconds of a showing. Sometimes this can occur even before they even step foot into a house.
If your siding is old, damaged or dated, you will not only scare away potential buyers, it can will also drive down the price of your home. The right siding material, as well as the right color combinations, could be what draws multiple offers on a sale of your home in the future.
Installing New Windows
New windows will also increase the value of your home. New windows are one of those important items that home buyers love to see in their future homes. Buyers see the benefits of new windows: better insulation, lower energy bills, better lighting, etc. New windows enhance the home’s character, warmth and general appearance of the home, both inside and out of the home.
Making Your Home More Marketable
The exterior of your home is the first and last impression that buyers see when considering a home. If you want to make it a positive one, and get the best price for your home, make sure to invest in those exterior renovations. Keeping your home protected and up to date will ensure your home will continue to increase in value for as long as you own the home.
