When people think about high-value remodel strategies for your home the first thoughts are usually kitchens & master bath remodels. While these answers are absolutely correct, WD Smith would like to offer a few options that many people don’t consider that can have a big impact on your home’s value!
The roof is one of the first impressions people have of a home. Few things in your home can have the same exterior impact on your home as a new roof. Additionally, and old and leaky roof can have terrible consequences on your interior! Make sure yours passes the test by replacing an old roof. You can also change the character of your home by looking into architecturally styled roofing tiles.
Landscape and Hardscape Your Yard.
Along the same lines of thinking as the roof, landscaping can give a great – or not so great – first impression. Backyard landscaping can transform ordinary spaces into incredible entertaining areas by including elegant water features and lush plants. Consider your area’s climate. If you live in an area that receives temperate weather year-round, you’ll find that your new landscaped yard adds value to your home and increases your living space.
Home Office Remodel
As more and more people are telecommuting for their jobs, and people are opening small businesses in their homes the home office is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity. The number of Americans that work from home is in the millions, and that number has continued to grow every year. Making sure that your home has a state-of-the-art space for potential teleworkers is a surefire way to increase your home’s value.
Renovate or Add a Family Room.
With open floor plans becoming more in demand, a family room is an excellent way to make existing homes more like new construction. Remember, it’s a good idea to keep in mind what homes in your area are like. People like to purchase homes that blend with other homes around them. Chances are you’ll find many of your neighbors are investing in family rooms as well.
