How To Add Value To Your Home

Where It Matters: The Outside

There is a famous quote that is always mentioned when anyone brings up buying a home. It’s that “a home is an investment.” While many homeowners understand this concept, they seem to lack the understanding that they should be adding value to their home to maximize their selling profit. When you’re selling a home in St. George Utah it can be a little tricky to get the most for your home. A key that we have found to get the most for your home is not only to add value on the inside, but also to the outside. Here are some tips to help you achieve a home worth selling.

Install a Pool

Everyone loves a pool right? Installing a pool will increase the value of your home because the next buyer will have to factor in the price of the pool on the property. And here is the best part, you get to enjoy the pool in the mean time. And when someone else buys your home it’s like they are reimbursing you for the purchase. Enjoy it while you have it and essentially get some of your money back when you sell.

Fix Up the Siding

Having outdated or damaged siding on your home will trigger a classic case of judging a book by its cover. The buyer will instantly classify your home as one that will be a “fixer upper” project. Invest in some siding materials that will bring class and elegance to the outside of your home. We guarantee that buyers will come into your home with a more impressed and positive attitude, which can lead to higher offers.

Add a Deck

We humans are highly social creatures, so anything that cultivates socializing tends to be something that we desire. And what does that better than a deck where you can grill some hot dogs for the neighborhood block party? A deck usually costs about $10,000 depending on the size and structure. But don’t let that price scare you away! Studies have shown that when a homeowner adds a deck to their home, they usually receive a 76 percent return on their investment.

Get a New Roof

Once again, we are plagued by those who judge a book by it’s cover. This tip is from an aesthetic standpoint that buyers will have a better attitude before they step in your home if you have a nice roof. But in all honesty, most roofs on older homes are in need of a few repairs anyway. So go all in and add a few extra digits on your home’s resale value with a brand new roof.

Regardless of your home’s value or assets, we can help you sell your home in St. George, Utah. Contact us for more information about how to get the most for your home.
