Whether you’re struggling to sell a condo or home in San Francisco, and you want to remodel to make your place more appealing; or you’ve got a-million-and-one “fixer-upper” tasks on your plate, and you’re searching for the most lucrative/aesthetically important stuff to work on, here is a useful list of home value boosting ideas:
#1: Install energy-saving fans and air conditioners.
Installing high-quality fans and AC equipment should be pretty simple, even if you have a large house to keep cool and keep at a comfortable temperature/humidity level. You build value in two ways. #1, you will hopefully reduce your monthly energy budget by something substantial. #2, the technology upgrade will increase the overall appeal of your home.
#2: Install bigger, brighter, better, more beautiful windows and skylights.
Who doesn’t love space and the beauty of the outdoors? Adding more windows – when done appropriately and effectively – means bringing in more daylight, more connection with the outside world, and more energy efficiency. Adding windows can make a room feel larger. Remember: emotion is a critical component of the alchemy that sets buyers’ desires on fire.
#3: Kitchen and bath remodeling – go for it!
Some experts believe that even simple and basic updates to your kitchen and bath areas can generate an 85% return – or more. If you only have a few thousand dollars to invest into your remodeling efforts – to extract the maximum value – the kitchen/bath area is a “no brainer” area to invest in. Beware, though: it’s easy to let a seemingly simple kitchen remodeling project spiral crazily out of control. Budget bloating, delays, and other annoyances can hound you.
