No profession knows how to sell a home better than home appraisers. Since they study the current market trends, they know how you can get the most value from the home. Following their advice, you can not only improve your home and living space, but also net a sizable profit as well.
Adding Space and Light
You can never have too much space and light in a home, and these are two factors that really help sell it. If you have a home with multiple small rooms, simply knocking a wall down will give you one extra large room instead, which is what buyers like. In addition to this, having vaulted ceilings and sky lights brings openness and natural light into the home, which gives it an airy, relaxed look. If you don’t want to attempt those large renovations, putting in larger windows or expanding doorways also provides the same benefit.
An Office at Home
The high speeds of the Internet have changed many aspects of global communications, and that applies to commercial appraisals and residential appraisals. Since it’s cheaper to have an employee work at home rather than an office, many people are looking for homes with suitable home offices. The room should be spacious with plenty of light, and also have access to a phone or cable line.
There’s probably no easier way to add value to a home than by doing some landscaping. Ugly lawns make even the most beautiful home look ugly. Creating some terraced landscaping, a pond or a simple stone walkway can transform a home on the outside, making it worth even more.
To make it even easier for you, pick durable plants that don’t require a lot of tending. Also, mulching and landscaping areas takes away a portion of your lawn, which is less for you to mow.
