Home improvements beyond the kitchen and bath that can increase the value too!

posted in Home Selling Tips by Kathleen Yamauchi

Backyard deckWhen we think of increasing a home's value we often think of a complete kitchen or bath remodel. However, there are other updates that you can do to increase your home's value. Best of all,  the results are a low maintenance, energy efficient home with additional living space. This can all be done without shattering your budget.

Front door replacement

Curb appeal, curb appeal, curb appeal. Exterior doors over time can lose their visual appeal and worse yet they can be a huge energy loss. Replacing the old front door not with energy-efficient, low-maintenance doors kicks up the first impression appeal to buyers.

Garage door replacement

A new garage door also offers a boost to your curb appeal and of course we take for granted that it will always operate as expected until that rainy day when it fails to open. Don’t wait too long to replace it.

Deck or Patio Addition

Looking for an opportunity to expand living space?  Adding a deck or patio is an easy way to expand your living space at a fraction of the cost of adding a new addition.

The "New" Outdoor Living Room

Whether a front porch, back deck or a ramada - creating outdoor living areas, even kitchens, is very attractive to buyers. A large indoor/outdoor carpet anchoring whetherproof furniture is a good start, and be sure to add colorful pots and cushions to best accent your house colors. Artificial long "grass" is a good choice to fill planters as it will add a bright green color and waive in the wind year around. The local Hobby Lobby has great iron artwork for deck walls and is nearly impervious to weather conditions.
