5 Simple Home Upgrades That Won’t Break The Bank

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.

#4 Insulation

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.
