Having a hard time deciding what investments to make on your home that are worth your money? These are the five smartest improvements you can make, according to Owning the Fence.
1. Give your front door a face lift.
By replacing or repainting your front door, buyers will be more attracted to your home. First impressions are so important - start off on the right foot by creating a welcoming entry. 8545 Midway Road showcases a recently added metal & glass contemporary front door, which nicely complements the soft transitional style of the home. The door adds light and opens up the elegant entryway.
2. Create an outdoor living area.
Patios and decks are a must have for backyards with pools and they provide the perfect space for gatherings. Adding patio furniture and a fire pit will further enhance the buyers' visualization of a luxurious outdoor living area. 5696 Monterey Drive is one of our newest listings that overlooks a creek and its beautiful backyard oasis is the perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. Covered and open patios present ideal seating & lounge areas.
3. Add a bedroom.
Converting a study or bonus room into a bedroom can add quite a bit of value to a home. Most buyers are looking for 4-5 bedroom homes. Turning a four bedroom home into a five bedroom home can drastically improve the value. 70 Braewood Place features an incredible upstairs exercise studio with walk-in attic space that could easily be finished out as a bathroom & closet for the perfect 6th bedroom.
4. Freshen up your kitchen.
Whether you repaint your cabinets, replace your countertops, or upgrade your appliances, giving your kitchen some TLC will always be worth your time, energy, and money. Buyers tend to zero in on kitchens - even the smallest kitchen updates will catch their eye! 4552 Pecan Valley Drive is extensively renovated throughout, including the unbelievable gourmet kitchen. With the latest colors & fixtures, stainless steel appliances, Jenn-Air cooktop, abundant cabinets & counter space, and built-in refrigerator, this kitchen is a chef's dream.
5. Wow them with windows.
Upgrading your windows not only improves the aesthetics of your home, but it also cuts energy costs. Installing energy efficient windows is one of the most practical improvements you can make. 5279 Spanish Oaks Drive features Kolbe & Kolbe aluminum clad on the outside, wood on the inside with 240 Low E glass.
