How Increase Your Property Value With Home Renovations

Does the term house flipping mean anything to you? This is where people will renovate their homes in preparation for selling them. This might leave you wondering “why would they do that?”. People do this because it increases their home’s value. Your property value increases with each update you make to your home. Meaning you will be able to sell your house for more, giving you a good Return on Investment (ROI). Which is why people will go through the trouble to remodel and renovate only to turn and sell their home. Our team at Orange Contracting want to go over a few renovation ideas that can increase your property value.  

Reasons to Boost Your Property Value

Modernizing your house and adding improvements will make it more appealing and people looking to buy a house are looking for these things and renovations to be done. Upgrading, improving, and modernizing your home provides aesthetic and monetary value. Depending on what renovations you have done, you can be looking at an ROI of up to 70%! 

Energy Efficient Ideas 

Sustainability should always be in mind when you get new appliances or renovate your home. Not just for the environment but because it will help you save money! You can now get energy saving models for appliances like fridges, stoves, dishwashers, and laundry appliances. There are even faucets that are more eco-friendly. An even simpler thing you can do is change out your incandescent bulbs with LED lights. You can use 75% less energy when you switch to LEDs.  

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas 

A lot of time is spent in the kitchen. Which is why you should make a point to invest in loving this space. Make sure appliances are updated and freshen up your cabinets. Sometimes all they need is a fresh coat of paint in order to transform the entire look and feel. Don’t forget about updating handles, faucets, and floors too. If the layout doesn’t cater for functionality and flow, this should be something you have redone. It is true that the average complete kitchen renovation can cost anywhere between $20,000 – $80,000, but you can see an ROI of 80% for doing it.  

Storage Space Maximization 

Naturally, over time, people accumulate more and more stuff. With these extra items comes the need for more storage space. If this is the case for you, some options are to add an island in your kitchen or have custom cabinets built. For more bathroom storage, you can get a vanity that has a lot of cupboards or shelves.  

Bathroom Renovation Ideas 

If kitchens are the most used room in homes, bathrooms are the second most used room. They are a vital aspect for everyday living. Making bathroom improvements can give you an ROI of 75%. Some renovation ideas can include updating the counters, plumbing, fixtures, the shower/tub, and flooring.
