Property Values and How To Improve Them

Updated: Jun 21

  • Curb Appeal is how your home looks from the street. This is your first chance to make a good impression. Making sure landscaping is well-maintained is keen. Updating the landscaping with flowers, mulch, rock or laying new grass seed can help with improvement. Make sure your yard is comparable to your neighbor's yard or better. If your property is in need of landscape updating we recommend contacting Clay Duncan at Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping LLC, they come highly recommended in the Marion, NC area.

  • Kitchen and bathroom remodels. These two rooms greatly effect your property value. If these are out of date you are robbing yourself of reaching the highest value. Average kitchen remodels bring in 81% of the cost in value. A new bathroom can bring in around 70%.

  • Low Maintenance Home. Buyers worry about having to replace or maintenance a lot of components in a home shortly after buying. If you replace a furnace, water heater or roof it helps the homeowner feel they don't have to stress about future disasters or unexpected expenses. Replacing the roofing on a home can increase the value as well as uping the curb appeal.

  • Efficiency. Older homes were built with no concern on saving electricity, reducing energy costs. But as time changed and power costs are on the uphill everyone checks for updated features to help save. Small upgrades like light bulbs and extra attic insulation helps efficiency but are not commonly notice by a home buyer. New energy-efficient double-pane windows improve values and is noticed instantly by home buyers during walk throughs.

  • Additional Square Footage. The more room the better. Most homebuyers are looking for more space when looking to buy. Adding more square footage will increase the overall value of a home, whether it be an additional bedroom, bathroom, level of a home, extra living room, man cave, or rec room.
