Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

4 Home Renovation Projects To Increase Home Value

When it comes to renovating your home, you will definitely want to start with the areas that help increase the home value significantly, especially if you plan to sell in the near future. This way, you can invest your money into a project that is going to put money back into your pocket in the long run. Here are four home renovation projects to consider:

The Guest Bathroom

Before you renovate the master bathroom, it's best to start with the guest bathroom. This increases home value more so than the master bathroom because the guest bathroom is used the most. On top of this, the master bathroom can be customized in so many ways that, in the end, doesn't help to attract more home buyers, but instead is only appealing to some home buyers. For example, if you add a duel sink to the master bathroom, it's not going to be a huge plus for someone who is single and looking to possibly purchase your home. 

The Windows

Completely replacing your home's windows with vinyl windows is a huge plus. This is because vinyl does not require as much maintenance and it makes the home look brand new even if you live in an older home. You should even consider added features, such as tint that will help block the harsh rays of the sun. This is going to ensure that furniture does not become faded, as well as the flooring. 

The Kitchen

The kitchen is probably the best place to start because it is the first thing that home buyers look at. Plus, the kitchen is where most people spend their time for gatherings, cooking, and, not to mention, every single meal cooked throughout the day. An open kitchen with new features, such as stainless steel appliances, a deep sink, and granite countertops is highly appealing and sure to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price. 

A New Deck

Replacing an older deck with a new one is also going to increase home value because it ensures that potential buyers can begin to entertain in their yard right away and solely focus on landscaping. On top of this, older decks are usually a problem because of termites and other pests, not to mention fading from the sun and cracks that can be dangerous. A new deck will be smooth, safe, and pest free. 

When you know the top four home renovations that can increase home value, you can be sure that you increase your home value enough so that you see a return in your investment. For more information, contact a business such as Parkview Homes.
