6 Upgrades to Increase the Resale Value of Your Property

Posted September 27, 2021

Buying a home is an investment in your financial future. Regular mortgage payments will build equity over time, but there are upgrades and changes you can make right now to increase the value of your home. This way, you will see a bigger return on your investment when it comes time to sell.

The best home upgrades are ones that are practical and efficient. They should make your life easier while enhancing the look and function of your home. Below are six enhancements we recommend considering for resale value.

1. Decking

If your wood deck is worn but in good condition, you can sand and restain or paint it to give it a refresh. But if you need something new, a better option may be to install PVC decking that gives you the look of natural wood without all the maintenance and concerns of traditional wood - warping, splintering and cracking.

2. Kitchens

Don't like how your kitchen functions? New cabinets are probably all you need! Kitchen cabinets allow you to readapt your space while doubling up as pantries and hidden storage for trash cans. In the same job, you can install a new kitchen island that offers plenty of spacious seating for entertaining and everyday use.

3. Doors

As long as your doors are safe, secure and have good sealing, you can give them a facelift by installing new hardware or adding pops of color. If it's time to replace your doors, make the switch today! Not only can you add function and security to your home but also enhance your home's curb appeal.

4. Stairs and Railings

Tired of having ragged carpet on your stairs? Hire a professional contractor to remove the carpet (or do it yourself) and finish the stairs. You can also step up your stair game with a two-tone railing or wrought iron staircase. Woodhaven has plenty of custom stair and rail options for every space and budget!

5. Windows

Start by giving your windows a good scrub using a vinegar and water solution. Wiping off dirt and grime can do wonders!

If you need new windows, rest assured you don't need to do everything at once. Start with the key rooms in the home and work your way through. Modern replacement windows are available in endless colors, materials and glass options. Find something that complements your interior and exterior!

6. Closets

Give your closet a makeover with personalized storage systems that are tailored to your unique lifestyle. Your custom closet will look great and make it easier to get ready in the mornings. Keep in mind that closets are for more than storing clothes. With the right closet components, you can organize accessories, shoes, jewelry and more!

These six upgrades are a great way to increase the resale value of your property while also improving your everyday lifestyle. To discuss any of these home improvements in further detail, contact the pros at Woodhaven today.
