There are many ideas that you can take advantage of to improve your home and increase its value in the real estate market, below listed are some.
Finishing up the basement
Basement is an added advantage to the house and even an unfinished basement adds a huge value to the house. But a finished basement adds even more of a value. Finishing up a basement would include installing floor drywall and paint and to make your basement comfortable and warm you can even consider adding basement heaters.
Before you embark on your finishing process, look around the basement for any signs of leakage. This may be in the forms of water dripping or pooling of water and also check your foundation for any cracks. If you spot this first you have to repair these damages. After you have addressed these primary issues, you would have to look in with your municipality before proceeding with plumbing and electrical work and once you have got that sorted you can continue with your finishing.
Upgrading your garage
One thing you can do is change your garage door, if your garage door is something that requires manual work to open you can change it into something that opens up automatically. To take it up by a notch try installing a door that complements the house.
Insulate the garage, if you are living in an area with great temperature fluctuation it is wise to insulate and vent up the space so this would protect the vehicle from being damaged by temperature changes. Install good lighting, dark lightings in a garage will not be so appealing to the buyer therefore switch out the lighting to something brighter and that is motion sensitive.
Adding a verandah
