Here are some good tips for making common sense home improvements that will unlock your home’s potential and payoff:

Repair First

We believe repairs are the renovations that will yield the most value for your home and keep you living in it comfortably. We suggest fixing the areas of your home that are in need of attention and we can guide you with a home repair plan and provide the right handyman services to complete the job. A good realtor will tell you, that you will be more likely to get the best value for your home from handling repairs than any other renovation. Good repairs to consider are: fixing any leak including faucets, replacing broken tile, floorboards, drywall, replacing exterior and interior broken doors and windows, replacing a problematic garage door, replacing broken roof materials, replacing broken screens on your lanai or other enclosed areas, rewiring faulty outlets, replacing broken fixtures and any exterior or interior damages. It’s important to note that even small repairs can increase the value of your home and keep you happy in it.

Consider Wise Upgrades

Certain upgrades can add a lot of value to a home and make it more enjoyable and efficient for you, particularly remodels that make the home feel more spacious or add practicality. Tearing down walls to create an open floor plan or even adding walls to create a new bathroom, home office, pantry, mud room, or laundry room are wise upgrades. In Florida, any upgrade to enhance outdoor living adds great value, such as outdoor kitchens, screening your lanai, or adding a patio, fire pit, or outdoor fireplace. Inside your home upgrading floors, fixtures, cabinets, hard surfaces, appliances, painting, and adding trim and moldings is a wise move to keep you appreciating your home and getting the most for its resale. Curb appeal upgrades are also smart, such as fresh exterior paint, adding stone veneer, siding, lighting, updating or adding a porch, or replacing your front door windows, and garage.

Evaluate Home Additions

Additions are the costliest of all home improvements and these decisions should be considered carefully to determine if they make sense versus a good remodel. For example, consider your community when adding on new rooms or square footage. If the neighborhood is full of 3-bedroom homes, then adding an addition with 2 bedrooms may not make sense or be a good return on that investment. Remodels are typically a better value. However, if you need more space, and know it’s your forever home, an addition may be the only way to solve that problem from the expense of buying a new home. We can guide you with a commonsense build-out, establish a plan, and deliver on it.

Kitchen/Bathroom Renovations and Remodels Are Great Investments

The kitchen and baths are the rooms most frequently used and the ones buyers pay attention to the most. Therefore, a good remodel regardless of whether you sell or remain within your home, will be well worth the money and effort put into it. A proper renovation of a kitchen or bathroom can typically yield a 100% return on investment. Depending on your needs and budget we can guide you with a more simple and practical approach to your remodel or a high-end renovation with luxurious upgrades. We are here to help you with the entire plan from design, budget, and choosing materials and appliances that make sense for you and your home.

Going Green

Going green has become very relevant nowadays when it comes to home renovations because it’s all about what you gain and not what you give up. It just makes good financial sense to go green for your wallet and to pass this attractive value on to the future buyer of your home. You can save money in the long run with energy-efficient appliances, windows, doors, and more. You can also get tax breaks on these energy-efficient products too. Energy prices are only going to increase, we can help you do your best to keep your utility costs at a minimum. Call us for an evaluation.

Make Your Home A Smart Home

Another wise upgrade is making your home a Smart Home. This is a useful home setup that has broad appeal as appliances and other devices such as thermostats, doorbells, security systems, lights and more can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere with an internet connection using a mobile or networked device. This functionality can also be added to home theaters where it's highly recommended. Controlling the functions of various devices in your home without manually adjusting them brings greater ease to your life and the convenience of your home.
