4 Tips to Increase the Value of Your Home During Summer Renovation Season

Summer is the perfect time to make home improvements. With the good weather and a bit more free time, it's a no-brainer to take advantage of the season to increase the value of your home.


Even if you don’t plan to put your home on the market, home improvement projects are at most rewarding and also offer a bit of peace of mind. Once a project is done, you don’t have to worry about it.


Being savvy in which home improvement projects will elevate your home takes strategy and when deciding which projects to take on this summer you need to be deliberate about which renovation will bring you a bigger return on investment rather than just acting as a money pit.


But, if you know nothing about which home improvements will help, we are here to share a few tips and tricks of what projects to undertake this Summer that get the job done.


#1: Kitchen and bathroom renovations are the best return on investment.


Built to Perfection’s experienced team typically suggests this as the first project to increase value on your home. This renovation is not a huge undertaking and upgrading one bathroom at a time or starting small in the kitchen could reap huge rewards.

#2: Backyard Bliss


If the kitchen or bathrooms seem too big of a task to start with, go for the backyard. It is Summer after all. Building a deck in your yard provides a solid foundation to host friends, like an additional living area.

If you are living in the hills of sunny southern California your backyard may not be even and a deck is a cost effective way to create a functional backyard.

#3: Paint, paint and paint!


Simple as it comes, a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home works wonders for not only curb appeal, but again peace of mind. You do not want to step into your home and get upset when you look at its appearance on the outside, you want to step in your home and feel happy and well, at home.


If you’re looking for that ROI (return on investment) it might help you to know, buyers often judge homes by their exterior before entering. To minimize second thoughts from prospective buyers, painting your home is the #1 way to go.

#4: Storage?


Ok, but really, shelving. Adding shelving to a room that can use it is something many overlook. Shelving acts as a clever way to include additional storage and who doesn’t love additional storage.


Whether you are looking to include this on a house you are currently living in, or throwing it in as an upgrade for buyers to build it to their customization, these modest shelves could add market value to the house.

In conclusion, if you are considering a summer renovation project with short production times, minimal budgets and value turnover, consider these small upgrades. Even if you plan to stay in your home, rather than sell, why not enjoy these amenities?
