How to Add Value to Your Home

One of the sure fire ways to add value to your home is to remodel your kitchen or bathrooms. The money spent on a new kitchen increases your home’s value more than any other remodeling project. Whether you are thinking of selling your home or just adding equity, the market price of your home can increase dramatically. If you are contemplating selling your house, these projects can guarantee that you get top dollar for your home.

Many people who are looking for a new home can simply not imagine how a new kitchen might look in an existing house. And they might be totally overwhelmed by the prospect of going through a remodeling project. But when presented with a lovely kitchen or bath, updated with quality materials they will appreciate the stylish elegance of the new spaces.

Most buyers today want a house in move-in condition. An updated home can compete better against other homes on the market, including new construction houses. And as always, first impressions matter. Many buyers see your home online first, so a home that presents well may spark more interest, leading to more potential buyers.

In markets where inventory levels are at record lows and buyer demand is strong, buyers will vie for available homes in any condition. But  many will pay a premium for a property that’s move-in ready. And buyers rest easy realizing that updating a house has addressed any structural issues, as well.

One of my personal pet peeves is that people give themselves a beautiful kitchen just before selling their house and they never get to use it themselves.  So if you are contemplating selling your house you might update it a few years early to enjoy it yourself.

At Seattle Cabinets they manufacturer made to order cabinets specifically for you, in styles ranging from Transitional to Modern to help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams. Or if you are not selling, you can be confident that you are protecting your greatest asset with well planned updates and improvements.

Wishing you happiness in style,
