Home care is one of the hardest parts of being a homeowner. It seems like every time you turn around there is a new task to complete and a new problem to solve. Not to mention, if you are a parent or a pet owner, your tasks never end. This can get overwhelming and make your to-do list your worst enemy. But, in all of this, you want to make sure your home looks great so you can maintain its resale value for when the time comes to sell. Whether it’s a simple fix or a big renovation, we recommend taking time to get things done right. Here are some things you can do to maintain the value of your home.
Fix Little Things Often
When you see the paint start to chip or the tiles start to look dirty, don’t hesitate to fix the little things early. Home maintenance gets progressively harder the longer you let things pile up. If you decide that it is time to move out of your home, all of the little things you decided to ignore are now on your to-do list all at once. Moving is stressful enough, and no one wants the added stress of renovating and moving at the same time.
Think about the things you look for in a house when searching for a new home. Do you look for green shaggy carpet and wood paneling on the walls? No, of course you don’t. While these trends may have been a huge smash in the 70’s they are definitely not in style now. If you are looking to upgrade or sell your home anytime in the near future, try to steer clear of trends that will date your home.
While the open concept trend may be a more recent norm in home building, it seems like it’s around to stay. Small hallways and sharp corners will only stand to hurt the resale value of your home. When renovating your home, try to utilize the space of your house as much as you can.
Lawn care is so important to any home. As people drive by your house, your lawn is one of the first things they notice about your property. If you are in the process of trying to sell or renovate your home, make sure your lawn looks its best and stays well maintained.
Upgrade Kitchen and Bathroom
Home renovation can seem overwhelming and never-ending, but it’s imperative to know which parts of the house you actually need to update. While the bathroom is the most commonly used room in the house, the kitchen is the focal point of the home. When looking at a house, most buyers’ top priorities include an updated kitchen and bathroom. Buyers feel that these two rooms are the most painstaking to renovate and they will typically pay more to purchase a house in which they are already updated.
Whether you are renovating your home or deciding it’s time to move on, make sure to keep up to date on your home maintenance. Doing a little now will go a long way when it comes time to move out of your home. Make sure that any updates you make will focus on enhancing every aspect of your home.
