Adding Value to Your Home in 2024
These renovation projects will boost the resale value of your home this year, according to experts.
If you’re considering selling your home and want to generate a profit from the sale, then a well-considered renovation is often the way to go. The right renovation will add value to your home and give you a healthy return on your investment.
It’s good to remember buyer psychology here. Most buyers prefer a home that is up-to-date and ready to move into. They will pay more for a home that has been upgraded because they won’t have to put in the time and costly effort it takes to renovate a house.
However, some renovations are more sought-after than others. And a few might even make your home difficult to sell. We asked experienced real estate experts to identify which reno projects will add value to your home in 2024.
6 Home Improvement Trends to Watch in 2024
If you’re thinking of updating your home this year, put these trends on your radar.
Incorporating elements of nature into a home’s decor, biophilic design has been gaining momentum in recent years.
For many homeowners, 2024 will be the year of home improvement. With mortgage rates sitting well above 6%, most aren’t willing to enter the housing market – which would mean essentially swapping their sub-4% mortgage rates for much higher ones.
Instead, renovating their existing homes will make more sense – allowing them to hold onto those low rates while making their properties more comfortable, livable, and convenient.
Home Renovation Trends Worth Investing in for 2024
If you want to increase the value of your home, it’s worth investing in certain home renovations now that will pay off down the line. While remodeling a kitchen and/or bathroom has long been the go-to for boosting home values, there are now more timely and practical renovation trends that will have even more appeal to discerning buyers.
Here’s a look at the home renovation trends worth investing in for 2024.
Safety Features That Make Aging in Place Possible
As baby boomers age, they are increasingly prioritizing aging in place. A recent U.S. News & World Report survey of Americans ages 55 and older found that 93% cite aging in place as “an important goal” for them. To appeal to this demographic, it’s worth investing in renovations that will make your home a safe place for older adults.
“We are seeing increased demand for remodels related to safety and accessibility,” said Jon Bostock, a former GE executive and current CEO of Leaf Home. “Popular remodels include adding safety features such as walk-in bathtubs and showers, grab bars, wider doorways, nonslip floor surfaces, and stairlifts to move freely about the home.” WEBSITE
