Before you choose to sell your home, make sure that you are getting the most money out of it. I mean the hope is that you will be moving to an even better home right? That means that you will need all of the extra cash you can get.
So how can you boost your home?s value without costing yourself too much money? The key is attractive design. Their are plenty of features that can be replaced, repaired, or renovated to make it more interesting for potential buyers.
For example, windows in general are an enormous selling point for many people. They want natural sun light and the ability to let in fresh air when it is nice out. While just the presence of an efficient amount of windows can be attractive enough on its own, new windows with a unique design can make a world of different.
On average, replacement windows can yield up to a 78% return on investment (ROI). This may solely be to replace old models with new impact windows meant more for functionality than anything else. But that doesn?t mean some flare can?t be added to up their value even more.
New doors can also be an effective alteration. A new steel door for instance, actually has the best return on investment of any other home improvement projects. They can even lead to a long-term return of about 98%.
Considering that a standard exterior entry door can be about 80 inches tall by 36 inches wide, and as much as two inches thick, not only is there a lot of material required to manufacture these doors, but a descent amount of man power is required to install them. This makes an already crazy high return on investment even more impressive.
Odds are you loved living in your home for however long you were there. So you probably want the next tenants to feel the same way. Why not offer them some interesting home designs to make it their own, as well as provide you with the fund to do the same to your new house?
