It is a fact that keeping up with repairs and making improvements are two proven ways that increase the value of the home over time.
Whether to accumulate capital or get the best price when selling, check the tips below
1. Make the home more attractive
The attractiveness of the exteriors, that is, how your house looks from the outside is the first opportunity to make a good impression. The exterior of a house has to attract the attention of a potential buyer and that he wants to enter to visit it.
To do this, make sure that the gardens of the house are perfectly maintained. If the part of the garden looks boring and drab compared to that of the neighbor, consider planting flowers for example or even repainting the front door and exterior walls. Once the exterior is in good condition, you must continue with the next step, control the kitchen and bathroom or possible bathrooms. When these two parts of the house are “outdated”, they can prevent a property from reaching its maximum value. The same goes for bathrooms; A mid-range remodeling – new floor and some renovated accessories – offers a 70% return on investment.
Since many homebuyers worry about buying a house that needs constant maintenance, replacing an important appliance before putting it on sale, such as the oven, thermos, etc. It can calm the worries of a future buyer.
The improvements that facilitate the cleaning and maintenance of things can also increase the value of the home. Consider, for example, replacing the wood siding, material that is considered high maintenance, with a vinyl siding.
Make it more efficient
Energy conservation characteristics can have a significant impact on the value of the home, depending on the area of the country in which it is located. Consider double pane windows, insulation, LED lighting and efficient appliances as a way to increase the value of the home and attract another buyer profile.
If you are willing to go further, place solar panels in the house. Solar panels also increased the perceived value of the property.
It is advisable to schedule an evaluation with a specialized auditor to determine in which part of the house energy is being wasted and which solutions would save you the most money
4.Big houses have higher values
Square meters have a great impact on the value of housing. The price per square meter is one of the ways that helps customers compare houses that are similar in style. Adding a room is the obvious way to make your house increase its value, on the other hand you can also create more living space by restoring a basement or building a covered porch.
5. Make the home smarter
Devices that improve home security top the list of “smart” technologies that buyers want in their new homes. These secure and intelligent devices include thermostats, fire detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, security cameras, door locks and lighting.
While smart technology does not always increase the value of housing, it does add appeal. Hormicasa helps you find your ideal home. Please contact us by calling +34 928 800 543 or by sending an email to the real estate email@example.com
