Adding Value to your Mammoth Lakes Property
Which items will add value to your Mammoth Lakes home?
The answer is: “Only the ones that future buyers will also want and be willing to pay for.”
As a general rule, choosing the functional options over the cosmetic upgrades and choosing more neutral tones over unusual colors will help at resale. Current trends can also affect the value of an update. Be careful to opt for timeless looks as many trends can go out of style.
Which updates will add the most value to your home?
Updates that increase usable space (extra bathroom, larger and/or upgraded kitchen or a more usable layout, master bedroom suites with larger closet space, conversion of unused spaces to a guest room, office or play room).
Updates that will lighten and brighten your rooms (white or light color paint and floor coverings, light woods, skylights, larger windows, French doors). All make the home feel fresher and more appealing for a buyer's first impressions.
Updates that will open your property to the outdoors for fresh air and entertaining (French doors, large open windows that accentuate views.)
Updates that will increase privacy and security (fencing, landscaping, alarm systems).
Updates that create more curb appeal (Landscaping, trees, rockscapes, water features, fire pits, seating, etc..)
