Your clients can never go wrong upgrading a home for their own comfort. But when upgrading as an investment, help them be sure their decisions are value-based.
When upgrading, clients should decide if their goal is personal – for long-term enjoyment – or to serve as an investment and appeal to future buyers. If investment is the goal, stick to more fundamental projects that add beauty and functionality to a home without blowing a budget.
Good choices include upgrading wood floors and kitchen counter-tops. Choose durable materials or cost-efficient options, including green products, like composites made from recycled materials.
Additionally, installing organizational systems in closets, garages or wherever more functional space can be created is an advantage to a homeowner or any buyer. So is adding universal design elements, like accessible bathrooms, that can accommodate people with disabilities and create flexible space.
There are plenty of no-lose ways to invest in a home. When clients create a space they love, odds are that others will, too.
