How to Increase the Value and Comfort of Your Home

When it comes to updating your home, it’s important to consider both short and long-term rewards. If you’re looking to invest in a few renovation projects in 2019, we recommend choosing plans that add value to your home and increase your day-to-day comfort as well.

Here are a few of the ways you can improve your southern California home:

Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

Although you might think that a fresh coat of paint won’t make a significant impact on your home’s value or livability, we’d have to disagree! This relatively simple update is one of the first things people notice when walking into your home and it’s one of the best returns on investment too! It also improves the livability of your home because a simple coat of paint can change your mood depending on the color you choose.

Improve the Air Quality

Did you know that one of the easiest ways to improve the air quality in your home is to remove old, stale carpets? Replacing them will not only improve your indoor air quality, but it can increase your home value as well! In one survey, 90% of real estate agents said that homes with hardwood sell for more money, and are easier to sell as well. If you want to take indoor quality one step further, you can also replace your old AC unit. Newer HVAC systems, with a filtration system built into the duct work, are more efficient which undeniably adds value to your home. The effects of poor indoor air quality aren’t necessarily obvious, but they can be severe, making this home update truly worth the investment.

Update Your Kitchen

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, we spend about 37 minutes a day in the kitchen. With that much time spent in one space over your lifetime, you might as well enjoy it! While kitchen renos are not cheap, they are known to add the equal investment value into the home. Simply by improving a few features, like adding an island or replacing a small sink, you can improve your meal prep experience and add value to your home simultaneou
