Home Improvements That Quickly Increase Value

Are you planning to sell your Guam home and increase its value by doing some renovations, or you just simply wanting to update your current living space?

Home improvements, remodeling can not only renew your nest interest, it can also make every one of your rooms more functional. With a few tweaks to your home, you can save money and get more back when it comes time to sell.

1. Kitchen

Kitchen is the heart of the home. Family and friends gather and spend most of their time here. So consider installing a new stove with oven, replacing your refrigerator or putting in new cabinets to make it more functional and aesthetically pleasing. Gone are the white appliances. Stainless-steel is IN!

2. Bathroom

Another place people spend a lot of time in is the bathroom. It may function just fine, but t’s always a good time to put in new tiles, sink, lighting, plumbing, fixtures, tub (maybe, a jetted tub?) and get rid of that boring plain mirror and replace it with a beautiful framed one.

3. Replacing Windows

Old windows on a house can be an eyesore, not to mention a pain to open and close. New windows can also have the cost-saving benefit of cutting down on drafts and increasing energy efficiency. Especially if you’re not planning to move yet, consider the possible reduction in utility bills when you look at your bottom line.

4. Landscaping

Making a good first impression is a good return of investment. The curb appeal of your home is often undervalued by homeowners when they put their home on the market. But as the first thing any house hunter will see when they come to tour the home, it’s important to seed any dead patches of grass, mow the lawn regularly and add a bit of color with flowers or bushes without overwhelming the yard.
