Home Values Increase With Home Remodeling

Dec 20, 2007
A homeowner will often schedule home remodeling projects to improve the appearance of the home. If the home is going to be placed on the real estate market for sale, it would be in the homeowner's best interest to make the home look luxurious and spacious and the homeowner should make sure it is equipped with the latest home appliances. People are willing to pay good money for quality built homes and little remodeling touches can persuade homebuyers to make an offer.

Many homebuyers search for homes with plenty of storage space. A homeowner could turn the unused space in the garage into a stylized storage facility for items that are used in yard and inside the home at Christmas time. A carpenter can create storage closets with odd sized space to accommodate large items such as vacuum, brooms and especially a weed eater. The woods used on this type of home remodeling project do not have to be solid woods and with some creative staining and hardware, the additional storage space could increase the value of the home tremendously.

The value of the home might go up some more if the homeowner is willing to invest in some new lighting fixtures that are more modern. With some recessed lighting fixtures in the den, the family can boast that the home is more energy efficient. With ceiling fans placed throughout the home, the homebuyers will see that the home is comfortable to live in without the air conditioner running and will remember these additions when it comes time to make an offer.

The appearance of the home can be changed significantly by the addition of sliding windows and a new entry door. Some homeowners will consider some home remodeling tasks such as pressure cleaning the bricks on the outside of the home at the urging of a qualified realtor who knows that a clean appearance can have a profound effect on the home's curb appeal. The windows can be accented with shutters at a minimal cost, and the homeowner can install these and save a lot of money.

Some homeowners will consider landscaping the front and back of the house to add to the curb appeal of the home. A landscaper can plant a few shade trees that keep the house cool in the summer time. This type of remodeling project can enhance the value of the home by keeping cooling costs down and making the home beckon to buyers on the street who are mesmerized by the colorful scenery before them. Little additions like new mail boxes and a coat of fresh paint on a fence can make the value of a home soar with very little remodeling efforts involved.

A professional painting contractor can turn the interior of the home into a showcase in one or two days. With the right stains on columns and banisters, a home can seem like a palatial estate that would be priced much higher. With a fresh coat of paint on walls that is neutral yet pleasing to the eye, the prospective home buyers are likely to remember this home's address above others on the list that are placed on the market with touch ups just good enough to get by.
