Improving Your Home’s Value!

Anacortes House Values

Improving the value of your home

Spending Money on Your Home Might Not Increase the Value of your Home!

Spring is here, and that often spurs home improvement projects.

Property values have historically risen and real estate will continue to be one of the best long term investments most people make. If you are thinking of making any modifications to your Skagit County home however, you may want to consider how those changes will affect your home’s equity.  Not all remodels add value to a home, and in fact some can actually hurt resale value such as converting a single car garage to a family room.

Remodeling kitchen and bathrooms is one of the best ways to add value.  Adding a deck also tend to be one of the best payoffs in areas with water views such as Anacortes. Shelter Bay,  Bayview, homes around Eaglemont…you get the idea.  Landscaping will help your home sell faster, but may not add value.  If the landscaping is very high maintenance it may actually decrease the value in markets such as Anacortes and La Conner where the average age of a home buyer is higher.

If you are considering making changes to your home, feel free to call us and we will be happy to discuss how those changes might affect your home’s value.
