Remodeling your Stephenville, Texas home not only makes it a better place to live, but it can increase resale value and make the house more attractive to potential home buyers. However, there are some home improvement pitfalls to be avoided, according to houselogic.com. Follow these tips to make sure your renovations get the most bang for their buck.
If you renovate outside of the price range of the neighborhood, you’re not likely to see your money back in the resale of your home. Keep renovations neighborhood-appropriate. If you get top-dollar cabinet treatments in a middle-class neighborhood, you’ll likely not see the return on your investment you hoped for.
When you decide which renovations to make to your Stephenville home, make sure that you can do the job correctly. If you can’t do the job right, hire someone who can. If you’re spending money on a project that has questionable craftsmanship, you’re not only wasting your money, but potential home buyers won’t be impressed or thrilled with the idea of redoing the job.
Rather than adding new rooms to your Stephenville home, finish spaces that are already there. A finished basement can add a lot of value and appeal to a home, and is much more cost-effective than adding on a completely new room. Also, adding tasteful storage solutions in these areas can be extremely appealing to potential home buyers.
Make sure you’re not compromising space when making improvements. Turning a bedroom into a home office might be great for your needs, but if a family is looking to buy your home and needs the extra bedroom, the prospect of converting it back is going to be troublesome.
