Getting the House You Want Increases the Re-Sale Value You Need

Getting the House You Want Increases the Re-Sale Value You Need

 ~ Sherry Gillam

As Spring comes… (I know, the people in the polar vortexes are screaming their heads off as the storm alphabet actually hits ‘W’ for this tumultuous year)…but bear with me…spring will come…I swear. And when those semi-warm months begin, those four walls that have Dragonfly-Spring-Florida-Roadtrekin.combeen driving you crazy all winter will call out to you.

 

You will need a relaxing freshening-up to relieve the stress of this horrid winter, so why not do some home improvements and kill two birds with one stone? You will relax and have fun while bringing a new look to your home, and the house will be far better and way easier to sell in this over-crowded real estate market.

 

Everything from maintenance to repair to a general overhaul of a specific room that you would love to make beautiful again…home improvement projects help. People actually de-stress by getting that perfect facelift for the house they love.

 

Do-it-yourself may seen difficult and a pro is what you wish to hire in order to get the job done. But DIY remodeling projects are a great deal of fun. Projects that can happen in a weekend, to projects that will take several weekends, bring life to the house. Think about replacing flooring, or perhaps add on to the bathroom with antique faucets and cabinetry. Perhaps you want to put in new, elegant trim work, or replace windows and doors that will not only create more beauty, but also save money by using more solar power instead of dealing with mammoth heating bills next year.

 

Many people revamp the kitchen with updated appliances. The appliances on the market that people are choosing from also save money for the homeowner; as well as geothermal heating and cooling units that distribute perfectly level warmth and cool in every room, all year, no matter what is happening outside.

 

In addition, remodeling projects can give the owner extra space. And when it comes to the outside, improving your curb appeal by renovating and painting the exterior of your home will cause you to smile.

 

A home’s square footage is very important when it comes to reselling, and both big and small changes that extend a room and give you more valuable storage space is something that every potential buyer looks for.

 

That heating, ventilation and air conditioning system surely needs an overhaul. Same goes for updating plumbing and electrical systems.

 

Extra perks that can be added to a home are waterproof basements, soundproof rooms, even adding in a sound system that plays effortlessly through the house can improve your home and state of mind.

 

As with anything in life, the foundation has to be strong. Not to mention, the roof over your head has to be the highest quality for safety, money-saving issues, and resale value. So if you’re looking for a bigger project to take on, these would be the two areas of the house you should really concentrate on.

.

In the end, choosing a home improvement project to put the smile back on your face after this horrific winter, is a truly great way to go! The house becomes an even better dwelling, and you get to make something beautiful. After looking at all that snow a beautiful, warm, sunlit room is just what the doctor ordered.
