Invest in Your HomeOctober 1, 2014
As one of your largest financial assets, it makes sense to maintain, upgrade and invest in your home. The trick, however, is doing it wisely. So how do you decide where to put your money?
Let us be honest, home improvement projects do no always increase the value of your home. That said, certain projects will have more of an effect than others.
Priority number one is typically centered on the small stuff. Yes, this includes those dripping faucets, torn vinyl flooring, stained carpets and running toilets. These nuances can actually hinder a sale more than you would think.
Once those things are taken care of, curb appeal comes into play. It makes sense to invest in your homeâ€™s first appearance, after all it is the first thing that a prospective buyer sees. According to Remodeling magazineâ€™s 2014 Cost vs. Value Report, steel doors, new windows and a new garage door will go far for little when it comes to boosting your homeâ€™s value.
