Most Valuable Home Additions to Make Your Home a Hot Property

mqdefaultIf you put up your house for sale today, will your potential buyers care about the improvements you have made to your home so far? People often make improvements and repairs to their  Raleigh NC homes over the years. Unfortunately, not all of these improvements are effective at increasing the home value. When the property ends up on the market, it gets little attention from buyers since it does not have any appeal.

Fix up the kitchen and baths

Kitchen and bathroom remodeling can return more than 100% of the remodeling cost at resale. People want beautiful homes with functional and attractive kitchens and baths. These areas of the home show how well money has been spent. They contain the most fixtures and design details; they should be a key focus when considering remodeling. Some of the improvements you can make to the kitchen or bath are refinishing sinks, tubs and countertops, replacing tiles, refacing kitchen cabinets, creating additional storage space, installing glass bath enclosures and repainting walls.

Proper home maintenance

A glamorous kitchen is not worth the trouble if you have a leaking roof or water in the basement. Proper home maintenance is crucial to property value. A well cared for home usually shows and this is what buyers are after. Inspect the plumbing and make necessary repairs, clean the gutters and patch up the holes in the roof, repaint interior and exterior walls and make sure all the basic systems are in great working order. Maintenance helps you avoid much more costly replacement.

Landscaping

Few people will walk into your home if they are not impressed by the exterior no matter how big the “For Sale” sign is. If you are going to spend money on your Raleigh property, work on a strong curb appeal. You should consider getting a landscaper. Grow a lush grass cover, plant a few graceful flowers, build a winding walkway up to the door or install some patio decking to make your home’s exterior more attractive. Landscaping sort of conveys a welcome message and few people can resist the urge to look inside. You can even install ornamental fences just to spruce things up a little more.

Add more space

According to a study by the National Association of Realtors, adding 1000 square feet to your home can increase the sale price by more than 30%. Bathroom additions often bring the most returns. You can also add attic bedrooms and sunrooms to create more space.
