With a high demand for homes, a low supply for sale, and favorable interest rates, it’s a seller’s market in the housing industry today. In March 2021, home prices jumped by 11.3% year-over-year, according to Forbes.
If you’re looking to take advantage of the hot market and list your Berks County home for sale, you may want to make sure first that you’re going to get the most value out of it that you can. Read about 5 ways to increase your home’s value before listing it on the market.
Add Square Footage to Your Home
The more square footage your home has, the more it is typically worth. If you currently have an unfinished basement, you may want to consider having an experienced professional outfitting your basement. Not only will this appeal to families looking for additional space for their kids or in-laws but also to working professionals who may now be in-need of a quiet place to work in the home. Our team of design experts will work with your budget, timeline, and vision to create additional living space that will shine in your listings’ photos.
Remodel Your Kitchen
For many families, the kitchen is the heart of the home and the make-or-break factor when deciding to put down an offer. Make sure your kitchen is up-to-date with the current trends. Installing new flooring such as hardwood or tile, upgrading your cabinets and countertops, adding a fresh coat of neutral paint, and choosing modern fixtures can have a huge impact on impressing potential buyers and increasing your home’s value.
At Eagle Construction & Remodeling, we have years of experience and knowledge to understand what many homeowners look for in a house. We use high quality materials to turn any outdated kitchen into a sleek and inviting space perfect for family dinners, hosting parties, and more!
Upgrade Your Bathrooms
Along with the kitchen, potential homeowners will be looking closely at the bathrooms to determine if your home is the one they want to settle down in. Making some cosmetic and functionality changes to your home’s bathrooms can go a long way.
While sunken bathtubs were once the trend, they have since been replaced by walk-in showers for clawfoot tubs. Let our team transform your space into a modern spa-style bathroom with upgraded sink, shower, vanity, and light fixtures.
Improve the Curb Appeal
The first thing a potential homeowner will see when they pull into your driveway is the exterior of your home. At Eagle Construction & Remodeling, we build and install high quality exterior renovations to give your home a boost and increase its value, yielding higher ROI for less money. Whether you want to give your home a facelift with new vinyl, stone siding, or brick exterior, we have you covered! Give us a call to discuss your project.
Create an Outdoor Space
When listing a home, you want the potential homeowners to be able to picture themselves living in your house. Improving the outdoor space can be an easy and cost-efficient way to do this. As more people are spending more time in their homes, they may place a higher value on an outdoor space suited for relaxing and entertaining.
Add an attached deck onto your home or install a patio that can be used for grilling, sitting around a fire pit, or unwinding in the sun. We’re proud to be the number one deck design company in the local area and look forward to working with you to create the perfect design for your home. It’s been found that a deck construction or remodel has recovered as 106 percent of their value when the homeowner sells the home! Don’t delay, start planning today!
