Keep Resale Value in Mind While Remodeling Your Columbus Home

Keep Resale Value in Mind While Remodeling Your Columbus HomeIf you're preparing to renovate or remodel your home in Columbus, it makes sense to keep your future resale value in mind. Even if you don't plan to sell your Columbus home any time soon, your future self will thank you for considering the ROI and the marketability impact of the renovations you choose. Here's how to renovate your home so that it's both more functional for you, and easier to sell for your ideal price in the future. 

Focus on High ROI Projects

As you plan your renovations, you will probably begin with your dream projects and your favorite designs (maybe even looking for inspiration online and looking for ways to match the look of your favorite blogs). There's nothing wrong with choosing projects that fit your preferred aesthetic and make your home more functional for your life, but don't forget to prioritize high return-on-investment (ROI) projects. 

When planning your remodeling project, prioritize updates that offer the highest ROI and have broad appeal to potential buyers. Kitchen and bathroom renovations are typically among the most profitable projects, as they can significantly enhance the value and marketability of your home. Other high-ROI projects to consider include adding a deck or patio, updating flooring, replacing windows and doors, and enhancing curb appeal with landscaping improvements.

Personalize with Details

Choosing timeless colors and finishes will also make a big difference. Consider keeping your pops of color and bold design choices to the artwork, paint colors, and furnishings in the design so that it will be easy to transform your home for sale when the time comes. 

For example, if you love turquoise and are considering a turquoise tile backsplash in the kitchen, you may end up finding that this does not appeal to the general public when you go to sell. Instead, look for ways to use the color as an accent in the kitchen and opt for a more neutral backsplash. 

Maintain a Cohesive Design

If interior design is not in your background or skillset, you may not realize the importance of the whole house design working well together. It's not recommended to have a major difference in design styles from one room to the next. 

Aim for consistency and cohesion in design and materials throughout your home to create a cohesive and harmonious look. Avoid over-personalized or trendy design choices that may appeal to only a niche audience. Opt for timeless and classic design elements that have broad appeal and will stand the test of time, such as neutral color palettes, quality finishes, and functional layouts.

Improve Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient upgrades not only reduce utility costs for homeowners but also enhance the marketability of your home. Consider investing in energy-efficient appliances, windows, insulation, and HVAC systems to improve your home's energy performance and appeal to environmentally-conscious buyers. We can then highlight energy-efficient features in your home's listing to attract potential buyers and differentiate your property in the market.

Create More Living Areas

Design flexible living spaces that can adapt to the changing needs and lifestyles of both your own household and your future potential buyers. Open floor plans, multifunctional rooms, and versatile spaces such as home offices or bonus rooms appeal to a wide range of buyers and add value to your home. We can highlight the flexibility and functionality of these spaces during home showings to showcase your home's potential to prospective buyers.

Outdoor living spaces are also highly desirable among most homebuyers. If you invest in outdoor improvements such as patios, decks, landscaping, and outdoor kitchens to create inviting and functional outdoor living areas, you can anticipate a great ROI. The outdoor amenities can be highlighted in your home's listing to capitalize on the appeal of outdoor living and enhance the overall value of your property.
