Most homeowners like to make updates and upgrades to their homes, but they might not realize that some are more cost-effective than others. While some upgrades are necessary—fixing old issues or making an area livable—some could actually give you return on your investment when you go to sell. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we have a few ideas about changes you can make that might make your home worth more. Read on for some tips!
Renovate the Kitchen
Not only is the kitchen usually the most used room of the home, but it’s also the room that homebuyers might judge the entire house on. You can update your appliances and countertops, reface your cabinets, change out your flooring, and repainting your walls to create a more modern feel, which might alone encourage a potential buyer to increase their bid.
Give the Outside a “Facelift”
The exterior of the home is what creates the first impression for homebuyers and neighbors alike. Updating to new external siding (like vinyl or fiber-cement) or manufactured stone (especially in an entryway) or hanging a new garage door can drastically enhance the external look of your home.
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 budget. Updating your window treatments can improve your home in a number of ways. Shutters or wood/faux wood blinds might make your home value climb. Hunter Douglas offers numerous options, such as Heritance® Hardwood Shutters, NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters, and Parkland® Wood Blinds. Having new treatments can give your home a consistent look from the outside, which can appeal to a buyer and make them more eager to purchase. If the window treatments don’t directly add to the value of your home, energy-efficient treatments like Duette® Honeycomb Shades or Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades can help reduce energy costs, which might, in turn, help you recoup the cost of those shades after time if you stay in the home yourself.
