Increase Your Home’s Value with These Renovation Projects
The housing market is thriving right now which means it’s a great time to undertake some renovation projects that will add value and beauty to your home. If you want to make your neighbors jealous and boost your property value at the same time, here are a few projects to help you with that!
- A New Office
Working from home has never been more common than it is right now. However, instead of turning a small bedroom into an office, we recommend getting an extension on your house and building one from scratch. This will allow you to customize it more to your liking and add features that will help you maximize your productivity. For example, you might want a nice big set of vinyl windows to let in that beautiful sunlight while you work.
2. A New Roof
Sometimes it’s good to make a drastic change if you’re looking to boost your home value, especially when it comes to big features like your roof. That’s why you should swap out your old asphalt shingles this new year for a shake roof.
A metal shake roof is one option, though we would offer a synthetic cedar shake shingles as a better alternative. Synthetic cedar shakes are more durable, can be made to look just like real wood shakes, and won’t break down in the relentless sunlight.
They’re also trending right now, which means higher property value for you as the year progresses.
3. New Flooring
There’s a reason why new floors are a favorite renovation, and much more fruitful than a smaller project like installing a new garage door. One of the best ways to boost your home’s value is by adding some new flooring. You might go with an experimental material like cork or rubber, a tried-and-true material like premium hardwood, or even alternatives like reclaimed wood flooring or faux wood plank flooring. Premium hardwood is particularly popular, but so are other high-end materials like marble.
Now is the Perfect Time to Invest in Remodeling
Seeing as how the market is thriving right now, adding some value to your home wouldn’t be a bad idea. Try implementing any of the ideas we’ve mentioned here for a noticeable bump in value. New flooring, a new office extension, and new roofing could be just the things you need to get a big ROI when it’s time to sell.
