What To Fix In A House To Boost Up The Value


Fixing up your house, as a means of boosting its value for an eventual sale on your local real estate market, is a tricky enterprise. By all means, this is something you should certainly think about doing. From making improvements to the roof, to considering the potential of replacing the windows and doors, there are a lot of different things you can do.

 

Important Advice For Home Sellers

To be sure, at NorthShield Windows and Doors, we can help you find the new windows, doors, and siding your home needs, in order to fetch the highest price possible on your home. There are also a number of possibilities that you can explore. The trick then is to make sure you don’t spend more than you are going to get back. This is something that happens to homeowners entirely too often. You’re eager to have a home that looks its best, but you also don’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars. The more you spend, the harder it will be to enjoy a solid ROI later on.

So the idea of what to fix in a house to boost up the value comes down to this: What do you absolutely want to change in your home? Which elements are the most in need of improvement, in terms of appealing to potential buyers? Not surprisingly, if you ask the experts, you’re going to get a few popular possibilities. Establish a budget, choose a small handful of things to improve, and stick to that. Believe it or not, but it really doesn’t need to be much more complex than that.

And when it comes to “what to fix up in a home to be sold”, we have some specific examples to suggest.

 

Best Things To Fix Up In A House

Here are the best things to fix up in your home, if you are planning to sell it in the near future:

•  Vinyl siding: This isn’t the most exciting thing you can fix up with your house, but it is far and away one of the most beneficial. Spending 9K on a vinyl siding project now can net you 8K on your return on investment.

•  Bathroom remodel: This is another big project. More often than not, you can expect to spend ten grand or more on a major overhaul of your bathroom. Still, if you’re willing to take the plunge, you can expect a significant return on investment. Some experts indicate an ROI of as much as eighty-nine percent.

•  The kitchen: Another project that can cost anywhere from a few thousand, to tens of thousands of dollars. No one is going to suggest that you spend the high end of a kitchen remodel project, but a few thousand bucks will definitely go a long way later on.

•  Roof replacement: Completely overhauling your roof can cost at least ten thousand dollars. It also offers an ROI most experts would set at seventy-nine percent.

•  Windows: Naturally, at NorthShield Windows and Doors, we are partial to doors, windows, and siding. There are numerous different types of windows out there. Any one of them can add resale value to your property. Check out such window types as casement windows, tilt-turn windows, bay windows, picture windows, bow windows, double slider tilt windows, and others. We can take you through all of the different options.

•  Doors: Another popular possibility. A new door can add considerable curb appeal. Wood doors, metal doors, and fiberglass doors are three popular types. Each has a wide array of design possibilities. You can also check out such types of doors as flush doors, Dutch doors, and panel doors.

Love our new windows and doors. We had all our windows replaced on the main floor, side door and front door, as well as the storm doors. The installation team was great. They removed the existing awning and were really great at cleaning up after the work. There were a couple of issues after the install, but the after sales service team of Alex and Walter were able to resolve it promptly. Great advice from Walter about keeping the humidity inside the house to maintain the windows, and also how to operate them properly. And thanks very much Alex and team for buying the doorbell and installing it for us, as well as fixing the bottom part of the door frames to cover holes on the flooring. Appreciate all your hard work and for going the extra mile. Will definitely recommend your company to friends, neighbors and family.

NorthShield did an excellent job with our house. They were the lowest price our of 4 companies I contacted for quotes. The windows look beautiful, and the molding is very well done. The installation was very quick, they replaced all of the windows in our house in about 4 hours. They cleaned up everything completely afterwards inside and outside, you can't even tell they were here! Very professional, very high quality installation, materials and work. I would highkly recommend them.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!
