Inexpensive Upgrades to improve your Park City Utah home
Inexpensive Upgrades Boost Park City Utah Home Values Painlessly
Especially when it comes to major decisions like buying or selling your home, human nature seems to tilt toward delaying action until it’s the end result is absolutely certain. After all, nobody wants to make a life-changing move that turns out to be anything short of fantastic!
So even when you’ve outgrown your current home…or found yourself in a daily long-distance commute because work has moved…or any number of other reasons why you know you should be looking for a new house…it can be difficult to commit to such a looming decision. Adding to that is one of the most common assumptions many Park City homeowners believe: that they have to spend a boatload of money to increase their home value.
The truth is: it ain’t so!
You can strategically update your Park City house before you put it on the market without cratering your bank account.
· Make it Spacious
Adding space to a room increases any Park City home value. Tearing out walls isn’t necessary when there are so many other ways to achieve the same thing. Simple options include removing built-in shelves, enlarging windows, or (the simplest) just removing “stuff” that’s hogging perceived space.
· Go Green
More and more, you can improve your Park City home value by installing modest “green” upgrades. Today’s buyers may not necessarily be eco-focused—they may simply have a good sense of the increasing cost of water and power. “Going green” as a way to add home value to your area property can be no more costly than switching to low-flow toilets, adding a wifi thermostat with “smart” technology, or putting in a low cost drip watering system.
· Window Update
Have a room that comes across as outdated…or just plain ‘blah’? Consider how much extra home value a new window treatment might add. It could be as simple as installing a stylish valence over a window or two. How about removing outdated window coverings alltogether? Uncover that mountain view!
· Change the Doors
Remember your first apartment with its flimsy, hollow doors? A quality door can make a disproportionate difference to a property’s perceived home value. Changing out your front or back doors for more a more weighty or modern selection can be well worth the expense.
Paint is the number one way to alter the look of a room inexpensively. Instead of painting the entire room one color, another option is to make a “statement wall” in its own neutral color that compliments a painting’s or picture frame’s palate.
· Change your cabinet hardware
Give your kitchen and bathrooms a more updated look by taking off those "spoon and fork" or super rustic cabinet pulls and replace them with streamlined stainless pulls.
These are just a few suggestions that can increase the value of your home in Park City without a straining the family finances. Even in an older home, many times it’s the little touches that can make the greatest difference.
