What Renovations Will Increase My Investment Value?
The truth is, most home renovations end up being cosmetic and decorative. They might enhance the “presentation” value of a home when it comes time to sell, but real estate dynamics have far more to do with supply and demand than fancy granite counter tops or a freestanding kitchen island. At the same time, there are genuine home improvements that actually do increase the value of a home, and for many reasons. High quality insulation would easily qualify here.
A good example here is spray foam insulation – a more costly product and installation than other options, but well worth the initial investment and the long-term payback. Indeed, spray foam has to be applied ONCE, without the need to replace or replenish for lifetime of the home. More than that, homeowners will save significantly on energy costs, with substantial cost savings on winter heating and summer air conditioning. These savings can often offset the original investment.
When spray foam is installed professionally, it provides enhanced indoor comfort throughout the entire home right around the year. Beyond that, air circulation is improved, as is the air quality. All things considered, a home installed with spray foam becomes an attractive feature for the discriminating homebuyer. Although it may not be a deal breaker, quality insulation will ensure savings for the new homeowner – from short-term utility savings, to long term HVAC savings.
