Prior to moving up here to Alberta, Canada my family and I used to live down in Tennessee where I worked for the brilliant Investar, USA. This is a company which specializes in renovating communities and real estate and they act as a lender, an advice center and a community-driven company who seek to revolutionize areas throughout the southern states of the USA. I enjoyed my time there immensely and something which I learned about were homes and their value.
I used the knowledge which I learned in my position to maximize the value of my property in Tennessee and through some smart renovation we were able to get far more for the property than I ever believed. If you would like to increase the value of your home and make it more salable then the best thing which you can do is to invest money into it. The best time to do this is of course some years before selling it, so that you can enjoy the renovation and ensure that you can have many areas of the home completed by the time you come to sell the place. Here are some of the best places to spend your cash if you also want to get the most money which you can for your property.
People love beautiful gardens and in many studies which have been completed the research finds that house-hunters want to move into a property which already has a nice outdoor space. There are a couple of reasons for this but the main reason is that people just don’t like doing work on the garden, they don’t enjoy doing it themselves nor do they enjoy spending money on the outdoor space when they would prefer to spend it indoors. Beyond all of this, people want an outdoor space to enjoy.
The Kitchen is very much the heartbeat of the home and it is normally where the family congregates day-to-day. If you invest in a new kitchen then you can not only enjoy this area of your home with your family, but you will be able to get a large chunk of the investment back when you come to sell the home.
There has been a trend in the last decade of people renovating their garages in order to create a larger space or to create additional rooms such as a bedroom. House hunters however are more interested in having a garage and they do not view this as dead space. Almost everyone has a car that they would like to keep secure and many like the idea of using a garage for storage. If you have already renovated the garage then don’t reverse it, if you haven’t however then why not look to spend some cash on making this a secure and comfortable space for storage, if you do then that money will come back to you through increased value on the property.
