If you are planning on selling your house, you have to start thinking about what makes it attractive to potential buyers. What kinds of upgrades would you like to see in your own home that can make it more comfortable and easier to live in? Here are five updates that will increase the value of your home.
Buyers will often ask when the AC was last replaced or installed to gauge how comfortable their home will be when looking to buy it. Having the AC replaced will help ensure that your buyers have an energy-efficient home and will not be spending extra money on AC repairs. If your home is older, an AC replacement and regular AC maintenance will make sure that the vents, filters, coils and ducts are properly installed and cleaned for easy and simple cooling in the home.
In addition to replacing your AC, consider installing a programmable thermostat, as well. Programmable thermostats save money and energy by allowing the homeowner to control the temperature to their desired schedules. They can also be controlled through an app, making it easier to change the temperature even when you are not at home. Programmable thermostats are one of the most highly requested technologies from potential buyers looking at a home’s attributes.
Water Heater Replacement
Consider replacing your water heater by upgrading to a tankless water heater installation. This will reduce the amount of plumbing problems that could occur in the future and save money over time due to increased energy efficiency. A tankless water heater will also provide an unlimited quantity of hot water and also reduce the space used up by the old water heater.
Along with replacing larger units in the home, take a look at your windows, lights and floors. Upgrading to more energy-efficient windows with insulating glass or triple-paned glass can also save the buyers money in the long run. Even replacing your light bulbs with LED lights can make the difference in the appeal of your home. For the final touch, upgrade your floors to hardwood for a new modern look will make your home easier to clean and more attractive to buyers.
