One of the key considerations when designing a new home or buying an existing home is: What is the actual true value of the home? But, home value typically isn’t something that crosses the minds of most home buyers because when you’re buying a home, selling it is usually the farthest thing from your mind.
The problem with this train of thought, however, is that life changes fast. What happens if you’re offered a better job opportunity in another city or state? What happens if your family unexpectedly grows faster than you planned? The truth is, many homeowners find themselves selling their homes sooner than expected and only those that had the foresight to consider the value of their homes reap the financial rewards.
If you’re designing a new home or buying an existing one, here are the top two features you should be thinking about if you want to maximize your home’s market value.
Few modern families can get by with just one bathroom, but that’s usually what’s found in most older homes. This makes homes with more than one full-sized bathroom incredibly attractive to buyers. How much value does a second bathroom add? According to HGTV, if you install a second bathroom in your home, you can recoup as much as 130% of its costs in home value.
Patio or Deck
A deck or patio on your home adds to your property’s usable living space because it allows your family to spread out. To get the most value, however, the outside living space should be designed so it blends well with your surroundings and the neighborhood in general. The patio or deck should complement the home’s design so it works as a seamless extension to the outside world.
