You’ve saved up, planned ahead, done the research, and looked at more designs online than you can count. You are finally ready to remodel your home.
Remodeling is a huge step, one that can completely transform outdated or worn out rooms, giving you a modern space that’s more functional, convenient, and worth showing off to friends and family. But there’s another exciting element that can sometimes go overlooked when it comes to any remodeling project: home value.
Investing in Your Home
Worthwhile home improvements like remodeled cabinets or countertops in your kitchen, or a bathroom makeover or bathroom addition, can add real dollar value to your home and pay off big when it’s time to sell or refinance.
This potential return on investment is especially important considering the high cost that professional remodeling services usually incur, and just keeping that word, investment, in your mind can often help with a lot of the stress and second guessing that goes into a major home remodeling project.
What Return Should You Expect?
Having kitchen or main bathrooms modernized and cleaned up is a huge benefit. If you decide to remodel, you can assume that a significant portion of your remodeling investment in your home will be returned when you’re ready to sell. Remodeled and updated homes do sell for more than a home that needs fixing.
Remember that the buyers in your local market ultimately determine the value of your home. If you’re thinking about selling and you’re not sure what the value will be, talk to a professional who is knowledgeable about home equity and the local real estate market. They’ll be the best source to tell you what local buyers are searching for (i.e. solid surface countertops, white painted cabinets, premium plumbing fixtures, etc.).
Invest in YOU with Your Local Godwin
Plus, even if you don’t plan on refinancing or selling any time soon, you should never underestimate the impact a brand-new cabinet design, solid surface countertops, high performance faucet, or cabinet hardware can have your daily at-home experience!
