After months or even years of planning, saving, and dreaming, you are finally ready to begin construction on your custom home. For many, their future custom home isn't only a place to make memories with family and friends. The home is an investment that you might be planning to sell in the near future. If you are building a custom home for an investment property, here are a few simple tips to help you increase the property's resale value.
Focus on the Kitchen
When many potential buyers walk into a home, their first stop is the kitchen. This is because the kitchen is the heart of the home and the spot where many families spend the majority of their time. Focus a large portion of your budget on the kitchen and add upgrades that will wow potential buyers. However, make sure that the finishes, including the flooring, countertops, appliances, and cabinets, are neutral and will appeal to many buyers.
Include Smart Technology
Savvy homeowners want a home that is state-of-the-art, complete with smart technology. However, before you assume that you cannot afford to add some of the latest smart features, it is important to realize that you can include some amazing upgrades without breaking the bank. For example, you can include an inexpensive smart thermostat or some smart security features, such as a video doorbell.
Don't Forget the Landscaping
The landscaping is the first thing a potential buyer will notice when they drive to the custom home. You want the home to be inviting, but be wary of adding too much landscaping that will overwhelm the property. Instead, create a balance with beautiful landscaping that won't take too long to care for. Add some trees, plant native grass or sod, and add some window boxes to make your house pop.
Opt for Upgrading Flooring
Finally, when you are budgeting for every aspect of your home, from the basement to the roof, make sure to set aside a large portion of the money for flooring. For example, you cannot go wrong with wood flooring. However, if that isn't in your budget, a quality luxury plank laminate or high-end laminate product will be just as attractive to potential buyers.
Whatever you choose, make sure the finish is modern and attractive to the most potential buyers.
From investing in a big, modern kitchen to choosing upgraded flooring, there are several ways you can maximize the resale value of your amazing new custom home. Contact a custom home builder to learn more.
