Increase Your Home Value with these Designer Tips

by Melissa Thompson


When designing and decorating your home, unless you plan on living there forever, it’s important to consider resale value.  Since your home is likely your largest asset, you want to be sure to get the highest return on your investment when you sell it.  So, design upgrades should not only appeal to your aesthetic desires, but should also have a positive impact on resale value.  Here are some tips for renovations that designers have found to be most beneficial in helping houses sell:

  1. Choose a design that makes a room feel bigger than it is.  If you select and place furniture to fit the scale of a room, it will go a long way in making the space feel larger than it actually is.  Even though buyers will know the square footage, the perception of rooms being larger will have a powerful impact. When rooms feel more spacious, buyers see more potential in the home.
     
  2. Stick with tradition.  If you are redesigning a room, don’t feel like you need to get rid of everything you have and purchase all new things. Keep some of the home’s traditional elements. You’re never going to please every potential buyer, but making too many changes can backfire. People like to see homes that stay true to their roots.
     
  3. If you don’t have a walk-in closet in your master bedroom, add one.  A roomy, functional walk-in closet will add value to any home. Buyers see it as a luxury and are always excited to see one.  It might feel like an expensive upgrade, but it is one that will pay off in the long run.
     
  4. Don’t neglect the kitchen.  Of all the rooms in your home, an upgraded kitchen is the one that will get you the best return on investment.  The kitchen is the heart of the home. Even if you don’t love cooking, and order out more than you cook, it’s still used for eating, drinking, and storage.  You don’t even have to do a lot to make your kitchen stand out.  Even small upgrades like new light fixtures and hardware will add value to your home.
     
  5. The more storage your home has, the better. Buyers seek homes that provide a lot of storage space.  You truly can’t have too much!  If your home is lacking in storage, adding some will increase its value.  You may have to be creative, but it will be worth it! 7 Sneaky Ways to Add More Storage All Over Your House
     
  6. Fresh paint makes a huge difference.  You don’t have to make huge changes to make your home more appealing.  A simple, fresh coat of paint can give your home a whole new look and feel.  It’s one of the most cost-effective ways to update your home.  When choosing colors, stick with neutrals because they are a safer choice when selling your home.
     
  7. Be environmentally friendly. Millennials purchasing homes are looking for energy efficient, environmentally friendly options. You will not only reap the benefits of living in a more energy efficient home, but you will impress potential buyers who want to do their part in protecting the environment. 4 Eco-Friendly Upgrades for Your Home
     
  8. Bathrooms get you a lot of bang for your buck.  Second only to kitchens in importance to retail value, an upgraded bathroom is sure to impress potential buyers.  Since they are small spaces, little changes like replacing an outdated vanity, changing light fixtures, and updating hardware can go a long way. 

Whether you plan to be in your home for a long time, or you’re thinking of selling soon, make smart choices with your home design upgrades for your own enjoyment and for a great return on your investment.

How to Find a Dog Friendly Neighborhood

by Melissa Thompson


When beginning your home search, you want to be sure to look in neighborhoods that are a good fit for everyone in the family, including your dog. You will likely be looking for a nice yard, but it’s important to look beyond the property line. The type of neighborhood you end up in can make a huge difference in the quality of life for you and your fur babies. Here are a few signs that you have found a dog friendly environment:

  • - There are more groomers in a two-mile radius than hair salons…walk-in appointments welcome!
  • - Restaurants and shops have water bowls and treats for visiting pups.
  • - Pet waste stations are abundant.
  • - The local dog park is always busy with happy pooches frolicking with friends.

Here are some more serious things to think about when considering the home and neighborhood that will work best for you and your pups:

  • NEIGHBORS WITH DOGS.  They will be more understanding if your dog occasionally barks and are more likely to be helpful should you need someone to let your dog out or walk them while you are away from the house.
     
  • PET SHOPS. Areas with a lot of pets mean that there will be pet shops conveniently available.
     
  • SIDEWALKS. A neighborhood with sidewalks is ideal for dog-walking.  Bonus point if they have waste stations too.
     
  • DOG PARKS. These are especially nice for urban areas. Check if there are off-leash hours or dog runs, or at least grassy areas where pups can run and play.
     
  • MEET-UP GROUPS. Check and see if there are local meet-up groups available for playdates with other families with dogs. This is a great way for you to make friends as well!
