Thinking about getting steam showers and granite counter-tops? A drainage system that keeps the basement dry, new gutters, a new furnace, some landscaping, and lots of painting puts more value in a home. Whether you plan to sell or stay in the home, its resale value is important.
Recent data suggests that a major bathroom or kitchen remodel is less likely to recoup investment dollars. Replacing siding or other basic home maintenance items do. Replacing windows and roofs are also high priorities. Buyers assume that the basic systems of a home are in working order. It is also assumed that the roof does not leak and plumbing and climate control work.
This is not to say that steam showers and granite counter-tops don’t have any value. Bathroom and kitchen remodels are high on the list after basic maintenance items. New buyers on average are looking for big rooms. Big rooms in an existing home is great.
Current trends in the kitchen are stone and natural wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and all-wood cabinets. Whirlpool tubs have been replaced by walk-in showers as a desired feature in the bathroom. Some people forgo a tub to have a more accommodating shower. If a home has only one bathroom, adding a second bathroom increases a home’s value more than adding another bedroom.
Putting an epoxy floor in the garage is an investment that causes no regrets. The floor that is two years old shows no sign of peeling, fading, or cracking. A mop and squeegee are all that are needed to remove oil or water from the floor. Any gear-head or grease-monkey whose garage is more like a second home needs to put thought into an epoxy flooring in the garage. Not only is value added to the home, but it is also a great place to park your car.
