Budget Friendly Projects that Add Value to a Home

open floor plan

Budget Friendly Projects that Add Value to a Home

 

There are many projects you can do to add value to your home but these are budget friendly and quick!

 

open floor plan

Knocking a wall down can make a space feel bigger!

Open it up! 

Most buyers love open floor plans and if you own an older home, chances are your floor plan is more cut up with walls and door ways. Removing a wall or widening a doorway can create the illusion of more space. It will also give buyers the open floor plan they are looking for. If you do it yourself, this project is relatively cheap, taking less than a couple hundred dollars. Even if you hire a professional, it should still be less than $500-1000. Just make sure you do not attempt to take down a load bearing wall! This may take a weekend at most but could definitely be finished in a day if needed.

 

Neutralize the Paint!

neutral paint

Neutral paint helps attract a wider range of potential buyers!

This could be the cheapest, and easiest way to attract buyers. Having neutral paint throughout your home is a great selling feature and although it may not add value in an appraisal, buyers are more attracted to homes with more neutral paint. For less than $50 and a couple hours, you will create an atmosphere that appeals to a wider range of potential buyers.

 

Spruce up the outdoors!

Keep the grass cut, trees and bushes pruned and flower pots blooming! Add some fresh mulch to the flower beds and pull all those weeds! Curb appeal is a huge incentive to get buyers to even walk through the front doors! This project should cost less than $100 and will make a HUGE impact on getting potential buyers to take a look beyond the front yard.

 

Make your Kitchen Shine!

paint kitchen cabinets

painting cabinets and changing out the hardware can spruce up a kitchen for not much money!

The kitchen really is the heart of the home. Buyers pay more attention to the kitchen than any other room in the home. You do not have to spend big bucks in a kitchen remodel to get a big impact. Change out the lighting, add a fresh coat of paint, clear off all counters, add new door handles, buy a new faucet and painting the cabinets can all be budget friendly fixes that make a big change in the look of your kitchen! You can even reface or order new doors for your appliances to get them all to match.

 

Bathroom Fix-up

Bathroom and kitchen remodels get you the most bang for your buck because they are the most important rooms to buyers. But there are some easy fixes you can do to freshen up your bathroom without breaking the bank. Installing a pedestal sink can help maximize floor space or even changing out the fixtures and toilet seat can add a fresh look. New towels, a fresh coat of paint and a few pretty candles can top it off!

 

If you are looking to sell in the Northern Virginia area and have questions about how to spruce up your home value before selling, give out team a call! We would love to do a free in home consultation to help you determine the value of your home and what areas you could improve to up your value!

Benefits of Buying a New Home In Northern Virginia

custom home

 

Benefits of Buying a New Home In Northern Virginia

 

new home build

 

There are two kinds of new homes; new homes that are built to sell to interested buyers and custom homes that a buyer decides the layout and finishes before it is even built. There are benefits to both options!

 

CUSTOMIZE:custom home

Homes that are either built to order or already built have some customization options! Built to order homes have a ton of options for buyers. They may be able to choose the layout of the rooms, their favorite flooring and even what lot they want the home built on. Homes that are already built still may have some customization options like flooring, counter tops, paint, and appliances. This can ultimately save you some money by being able to pick your preferences up front instead of having to remodel another home.

 

LESS MAINTENANCE:

So this one is obvious! A new home is new, therefore there are no fixes like needing a new water heater or a new roof! This also can save you money and stress upfront because you know you can rely on the appliances and roof for a long time to come. All the appliances are still under warranty and most builders offer a home builder warranty to give you even more peace of mind.

 

energy efficientEFFICIENCY:

With many new builds, there are many energy efficient options that are popular and almost standard in this day and age. Everything from energy efficient heating/cooling, windows, to appliances!

 

 

 

UPDATED CODES AND TECHNOLOGY:

When you are buying a new home, you do not even have to think about things like lead paint and asbestos. There are also new fangled options like energy efficient heating/cooling, better air quality because of cleaner, organic materials used. Extra safety is also a beneifit, found in things like the latest circuit breakers and garage door settings that can tell if there is an object or child underneath before closing.

 

COMMUNITY AMENITIES:community amenities

Many new homes are built in communities with great amenities like playgrounds, gyms, pools, close to shopping, clubhouses, park settings and more! There may be an awesome location just waiting to be built on!

 

If you are interested in buying a home in Northern Virginia, now is a great time! Rates are still low and there are some great new home builds and “used” homes available now.

The market is still going strong in our Northern Virginia area in this new year of 2015. Interest rates are still low but have risen a bit in the past week. Rates make a move up after weeks of strong Fridays, rates have moved up about .125%. A 30 year mortgage is between 3.625% and 3.750% with 0 points. This is still a great rate and we are hoping they stay low for a while longer but if you are looking to buy or sell, it is a great time because you can get a great rate for buying and buyers are motivated to buy while rates are low if you are selling!

Please give our team a call! We would love to help you find your dream home or help you sell your current home!
