Whether you’re planning to sell soon or want to stay in your home for a while, you might be thinking about ways to make your place more up to date. A smart part of weighing your options is in whether the upgrade makes financial sense—in particular, if you’re planning to sell, will the upgrade help your sale or even increase the value of your home? At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Jensen Beach, we have a few suggestions that might be helpful to your decision. See below for more!
Thoughts to Consider
No matter your choice, remember that, even if you do recoup some of the value of the update when you sell the home, you will still have to pay for it upfront—and many home renovations or updates can be fairly pricey. Be sure to speak to a professional financial advisor to determine what makes the most sense for your situation. That said, here are some thoughts to consider and research:
- Remodel the kitchen. Whether you stay or sell, the kitchen is biggie. When people choose homes, they’ll often base it on their feelings about the kitchen—and if you live there, because most people spend lots of time in the space, you will probably want to enjoy it as much as possible. You can make some updates without going crazy. Update your appliances or countertops. Reface your cabinets or repaint the walls. Change out the flooring or light fixtures. Any or all of those changes can make a huge difference to the overall aesthetic.
- Curbside “facelift.” How does your home look from the outside? That’s the first impression anyone (from neighbors to potential buyers) will see. You can do some quick and small cosmetic things to spice things up (new street numbers, new mailbox, updated exterior lighting), or you can go for a larger change, like updating to new external siding (like vinyl or fiber-cement) or manufactured stone (especially in an entryway) or hanging a new garage door.
- Update your windows. New window treatments can improve your home in several ways. Some (like shutters such as Heritance® Hardwood Shutters, NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters, and Parkland® Wood Blinds) might actually increase your home’s value. Others (like Duette® Honeycomb Shades or Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades) can help reduce energy bills because they insulate at the window. And finally, even if they don’t contribute directly to increasing a home’s value, new window treatments can help make a space more elegant, inviting, decadent, and luxurious, which could give your home an overall increased perceived value from a potential buyers. If window treatments are on your list of presale improvements, be sure to speak with one of our representatives to determine some of the best options for your situation, needs, and presale budget.
