Read time: 2 minutes

San Antonio, TX – There are many projects you can work on that add value to your home while also enhancing your quality of life. By completing these projects now, you can enjoy the benefits of your updates, and when you’re ready to make the move your home will have the opportunity to sell for more. Take a look at these home improvements that will increase your home value.



Creating a desirable outdoor living space will add significant value to your home. If you make your backyard space more appealing, your house will be more appealing to prospective buyers when you decide to sell. Homeowners that add a deck or renovated patio space large enough for entertaining, recoup about 65%-90% of their investment.



The kitchen is known as the heart of the home, and because of this, updates to this room almost always pay off. If you’re looking to make improvements to your kitchen, stick to easy upgrades such as new paint on the cabinets and walls, new countertops, added backsplash, and updated appliances. Kitchen remodels recoup 60%-120% of your investment, as long as it’s not overdone. You never want to make your kitchen fancier than the rest of the house, or the neighborhood.



If your home only has one bathroom, consider using any extra rooms or unused space to create an additional bathroom. If you’re looking to add a half bath, you will need 18 square feet while a full bath requires at least 30-35 square feet. Utilize space such as an extra bedroom, closets, or under the stairs. You can recoup about 80%-130% of your investment with this renovation.



Energy-efficient homes are one of the newest trending features in real estate. Adding Energy efficient insulation and windows will not only make your home more appealing to buyers but will help you save money when it comes to heating and cooling. You can expect to recoup 60%-90% of your costs when you invest in energy-efficient upgrades. You can also receive a green energy tax credit of 10% for this upgrade, as long as you install Energy Star-rated windows and insulation.



The addition of a tiny home on your property increases your amount of living space square footage which plays a role when calculating the value of your home. Tiny homes are also often used as rental space, generating an additional stream of income.
