There are lots of upgrades you can add to your home, but there’s no need to embark on a complete remodel in order to increase its value. Here are a few simple affordable projects that will be well worth it in the end.
#1 Ceiling Fans And Light Fixtures
Adding ceiling fans and light fixtures, or upgrading old ones, give a fresh touch to a room by pleasing the eye as well as comfort levels. Don’t forget how much a ceiling fan can add value outside as well, especially in Florida.
#2 Crown Molding
People will pay more for elegance. Not only does crown molding add height to a room, it also adds sophistication and class to a home.
#3 Plants and Trees
Who says money doesn’t grow on trees? The Council of Tree and Landscape appraisers says that a beautiful tree can be worth anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000. Lush landscape provides much needed shade from the Florida sunshine, and can help protect your home from the elements while creating a comfortable spot for your family to relax and play.
Insulation is an affordable upgrade that basically pays for itself by lowering utility bills throughout the year. The Florida heat can also be tough on an A/C unit, but with ample insulation, repairs can be few and far between.
#5 Outdoor Entertainment Areas
Whether it’s a deck, a patio, a pergola, or an outdoor bar, Floridians love to spend time outside appreciating the beautiful weather. Creating a social area to entertain will repay you in great memories, while also enticing future buyers to give you the ROI you’re looking for.
