The work week can get insanely busy. There’s no limit to what work might ask of you, and worst of all, when you finally get home, your energy is likely on empty. For most homeowners, the best time to get a project done is going to be the weekend but given the short amount of time available on Saturday and Sunday, its best to plan to maximize that time as efficiently as possible. Here are 5-weekend projects that increase the value of your home in the most noticeable way possible.
Nothing says more about your home than the look of the outside. A messy landscaping job can likely point to a messy interior, and that’s a major turn off should you ever decide to try and sell the home. Adding mulch and some plants around a mailbox could even be enough to increase the perspective value of your home, and larger projects only provide a larger return on investments.
Renovate the Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most highly noticeable changes that you can make to a home. The countertops alone could help boost the value of your home by a few thousand dollars. Not to mention, when selling a home, it is a huge buyer’s hotspot to check and see what condition the kitchen is in. Make the improvements now, for your sake, and the possibility of a sale in the future.
Make it Energy Efficient
Your home is likely losing value due to outdated heating and cooling tools. Not only could the actual system need an update, but the various things that keep cool and hot air in the house like windows and installation might need a tune-up too. A consultation could point you in the right direction and get your value up exponentially.
Have a Flexible Floor Plan
A flexible floor plan allows you to make any room in the house whatever you may want it to be. That ability to choose the layout is a big improvement over feeling like each room is already determined for you. If you ever choose to sell this could be a huge factor.
This one is just as much for you as it is your home. Updating things to provide a smart home technology experience is a great way to make home life easier. A Nest thermostat or Philips Hue lighting system could really make it feel like you are living in the future.
These changes make your home’s value skyrocket, and they’re easy to knock out in a weekend!
