How to Increase Your Home’s Value in 2019 With a Few Small Home Projects
Is increased home value on your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? Let Jancewicz & Son help.
Whether you’re interested in selling your home in the near future, boosting your curb appeal and home comfort, or simply earning an investment back on your home improvements, your home value is a big consideration. Market values of neighborhoods can fluctuate from year to year, and the degree to which your home is lived in, can decrease your home value over time. You may find that when the time comes to sell your home, it has less value than when you originally bought it. However, with a few simple updates, you can easily boost the value of your home to get a stronger ROI.
Here are a few suggestions:
How old are the windows in your home? They may have been in great shape when you moved in, but over time, they’ve lost some of their durability and insulating qualities. Old windows might be poorly sealed or they might allow for too much heat loss or drafts. They may even contribute to problems of mold or mildew on the walls nearby. This is sure to decrease your home value and can cause your HVAC bills to go up as well. Replacement windows are a relatively small fix. They can be inserted right into the spot where the old window was, and might even look similar to your old window. However, updated replacement windows will offer the latest in terms of energy efficiency and durability, helping you save energy and boost your home value.
Here again is a fairly small fix, but one that offers tremendous value to your home. Your exterior doors are important to the insulation and security of your home, keeping heat from escaping during the Vermont winters and making sure intruders can’t get in. Your door should be sturdy and durable, able to stand up to the force of the elements and any other threats. Strength is important, which is why fiberglass replacement doors are becoming such a popular option, as those from Therma-Tru. They should also be stylish, particularly your entry door, as a way to boost your home’s curb appeal. If your front door makes a statement, future buyers are sure to take note.
Siding replacement takes a little longer than window and door replacement, but it’s still less disruptive than a full interior remodel and less extreme than other home improvements. A siding replacement can make your home look completely different on the outside, while remaining more or less the same on the inside. It can be a much needed facelift for curb appeal, as well as offering further insulation and protection to your home. You can look into 2019 siding trends so that your home can look brand new, even if it already has a few decades under its belt.
