Ways to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

Ways to Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

As of 2019, the average home in Orlando was selling for $240,000, with prices expected to continue to climb. If it is time to put your home on the market, do some remodeling projects to get top dollar. Then, talk to an experienced realtor. Here are some ideas to get you started.  

Update Your Kitchen

A modern kitchen will attract buyers to your home. Installing new stainless-steel appliances may pay for themselves, especially if you choose the new black ones. Natural stone countertops tell buyers quickly that they are looking at a quality home. In particular, you may want to have quartz countertops installed.  

Create Flex Rooms

Many buyers are looking for flexible spaces that they can use as they desire. Finished basements that buyers can turn into a home office are a hot trend right now. While you will want to check homeowner’s association rules and city codes, many people are opting for houses with add-on living spaces, like mother-in-law quarters. These allow younger buyers to afford more house than they could otherwise. If you have a two-story home, then consider creating a laundry area near the bedrooms.  

Energy Efficient

Buyers are looking for energy-efficient homes. High-efficiency windows are a great selling point. Also, new cool roofs can be a great option. These roofs can lower energy costs, and most people find that having a roofer in Orlando install a new roof instantly increases their home’s value. Therefore, it can be a win-win situation. Additionally, having a new water heater installed helps to lower energy bills. Installing LED lights is a low-cost option to consider.  

Remodel for the Ages

Especially in the Orlando market, remodeling for the ages can be a very wise investment as people choose to move to our warmer climate. Think about making the entrance to your home wheelchair accessible without needing to install a ramp where possible. Put in a walk-in shower. Create a functional master bedroom on the ground level. A low-cost option that often impresses buyers is comfort-height toilets as people realize they are getting older and having trouble with their knees.  

Paint

One of the simplest upgrades that you can make is to paint the interior of your home. Try sticking with neutral color schemes allowing potential buyers to envision their stuff in your home easily. Choose high-quality paints that are easy to wash.  

While you may be able to do many upgrades yourself, get the process started by calling JV Contractors LLC today. You will want them to put the new energy-efficient roof put on your home. Starting by having their roofers in Orlando install a new roof will help get the process started. Then, it will snowball, and soon, you will be ready to sell your home. Of course, after all the work is done, you may decide that you love the changes so much that you will just stay put.
