As a homeowner, there are many to-do items to stay on top of to keep your home in good working condition. But if you’re looking for ways to increase your home’s value, there are many things that can help. Home updates can yield great returns when it comes time to sell your house. It will also help you enjoy it while you’re there, adding better insulation. However, some home improvement projects will add more value than others. Here are a couple of ways to increase the value of your home in 2018.
#1: Exterior Upgrades.
New siding and roofing can do wonders for curb appeal and can bolster value significantly. If your home’s siding is old and has areas of dry rot or other damage, it’s important to get it replaced right away so it doesn’t spread and cause other interior damage. If your roof is more than 15 to 20 years old, it’s time to get it looked at for replacement. Especially if there are leaks, missing shingles or other areas of damage and repairs. If you have problems with either your siding or your roof, it’s likely that they will be noted in a home inspection when it comes time to sell your home. Unfortunately, that could slow down the process. It’s better to get things replaced and taken care of before you decide to sell your home. And if you’re not selling it, it will provide better livability.
#2: New Windows and Doors.
