With Energy Efficient Doors and Windows…Not only can your doors and windows be easily seen from the outside of your home, thus impacting curb appeal, but they also significantly impact your home’s interior. Consider energy-efficient windows that keep heating and cooling costs down and also fit the design of your home. For outside doors, try steel or fiberglass doors that keep energy costs low and improve home security.
By Adding Space… This could be as easy as adding a patio or deck, or finishing off a basement.
With Updated Plumbing… Hire a professional to modernize pipes, drains, and fixtures.
Another easy fix is your garage door. It has a great return on investment.
Imagine the payoff with a functioning fire pit in your backyard. Not only will you be able to enjoy it while you’re still living in your home, but potential buyers will easily be able to envision themselves sitting around a fire.
And by Using Paint Wisely… Painting walls, cabinets, or the home’s exterior, for example, can do a great deal to modernize the home and improve its value without costing a fortune.
