Making sound decisions, with regard to spending money and making investments this year, is more important than ever. One thing history has continuously proven is that your house will always be a safe place to put your money; and I’m not talking about putting it in a shoe box under your bed. I’m talking about investing in your home. There are many benefits to investing in your home -some more obvious than others. The first thing that comes to mind is value. By making an investment into your home you are instantly increasing the value. But what’s the best investment you can make to increase that value?
A logical investment is one that stays with your home if you were to sell. For example, new furniture, although it looks great, does very little to increase your home’s value. The best choice is some form of remodeling or redecorating. New paint, new kitchen, new flooring or tile, redo your bathrooms, etc. These are all great ways to increase your home’s value. Even if you have no intention of selling your home in the near future, it’s okay as these are generally considered long-term investments. When you make a choice to invest this way, you can be confident you’ve made a solid financial decision.
What about the additional benefits of remodeling, though? The one that comes to mind for me is boosting your spirits. If you’re a home owner, you know what it feels like to plan out a change in your home and actually see it come to fruition. The feeling of coming home from a day at work to a newly decorated space is definitely an uplifting one. New colors, new smells and that overall ‘new’ feeling are hard to beat.
Another benefit of home renovations (although, few will actually admit it) is bragging rights! I know we’re not supposed to say we love this but let’s be honest, we all secretly do. Installing a fantastic new wood floor throughout the house or getting some really unique metal or glass tile on the kitchen walls; you can’t wait to show it off!
No matter what your motive, investing in your home is as smart as it gets. There’s no guess work, no chance of loss, no worries: just benefits.
