Jay LeClerc - RE/MAX On the River Find a Home in Newburyport MA


There are many reasons to renovate your house. If you plan on selling, renovating your old house will increase the face value dramatically. Also, it makes you more comfortable while you get the satisfaction of living in a place of which you are proud.

Some cheap renovation ideas that will not hurt your wallet but translate into a more attractive sale are:

Add Energy Efficient Windows

More than any time in history, we have so much awareness about going green. It is a good idea as it not only saves the environment but also saves money. Hence, replacing old windows with new ones that are energy efficient will reward you with tremendous returns. Immediate benefits come as a drastic reduction in your electricity bills.

Make a Deck

One of the things home buyers look for is a deck. Adding a deck is a terrific idea because it provides a fantastic spot for relaxation. While adding a deck to your house is cost incentive, think of the improvement it will have on the face value of your property. Also, if you want to sell your home, it is a sweet selling spot to get better deals. 

Use Energy Efficient Insulation

Your heating and cooling system will be difficult to maintain if you use a door that allows a lot of hot and cold air to enter your house. Your entries, windows, switches, and attics are parts of the house that needs insulation. Replace old water heaters with new tanks that are energy efficient – they save energy and ultimately reduce your bills.

Ensure a Basic Maintenance Routine

A buyer will love to know the house is in good shape before investing in it. When you spend on basic maintenance, your home becomes pretty much appealing to prospective buyers. Basic maintenance routine doesn't have to burn a hole in your pocket. Hence, be sure to take care of leaky roofs, seal cracks, replace rotten woods and fix plumbing leaks. You also need to make certain that your house is clean.

Make Your Exterior Appealing

There are many renovation ideas you can do inside the house. You, however, have to bear in mind that it is the exterior of your home that will attract prospective buyers. With this in mind, you have to try to make your exterior as appealing as possible. Invest in good paint, make sure your roof complements the siding or brick, change your garage door, and anything else that will make your home look amazing at first sight.

House renovation is a great project that will yield tremendous returns with time. Be sure to invest in worthy projects that will make your house more appealing to buyers.
