POPULAR LUXURY UPGRADES FOR YOUR REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT

Remodeling and new additions are probably the best ways to add value to your home, office, or even warehouse. Not only will remodeling make your real estate property look better, it will make you feel better. Upgraded homes have an easier time moving on any market, and can often be groomed further, becoming the gem of a neighborhood. Upgrades range from simply practical to outright luxurious, but the ones that fall between the two extremes are often the ones that homeowners choose when looking to make a change to their surroundings.

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

Probably the most popular upgrades due to the wide availability of the materials and DIY nature of many, granite countertops for your kitchen and/or bathroom are a simple way of giving an area a contemporary, polished look. Some people choose to take it a step further, using granite countertops for outdoor bars and tables in their yards and on backyard decks.

BUILT-IN WINE COOLER

A favorite of wine aficionados and casual sippers alike, having constant access to perfectly chilled reds, whites, rosés, and sparkling wines makes any home that much more friendly. An amazing addition to almost any real estate, and available in a variety of shapes for a variety of spaces, wine coolers have the added benefit of space for liqueurs and other spirits. Wine coolers are especially beneficial for families that find themselves entertaining often, but will be enjoyed and appreciated by hard-workers who keep to themselves, and relax with a glass while watching the sunset.  

ULTRA-MODERN SHOWER

Energy efficient and relaxing, his and hers or single, streams of warm water against a textured tile background is a special place in anyone’s home to melt away the worries of the world. Imagine how amazing your home would be to an interested buyer, knowing that they would be privy to such a wonderful treat at the end, or start, of their day.

UNIQUE GARDEN

Perhaps nothing else makes a first impression the way that a garden does. While beautiful, traditional, and familiar, grass, flowers, and trees require water and maintenance that may prove to be worth it, but may not. Particularly in drier states, desert gardens are increasing in popularity as a means of saving water while still making the real estate property’s exterior a work of art. This simple, environmentally-friendly upgrade will make your home or business a visual treat to those driving by, or the residents themselves.

GUEST HOUSE

While costly and only feasible to those with substantial property, a guest house is the ultimate addition to any home. Guests and even renters will be able to live comfortably with a high degree of privacy while in close proximity to you and your household. Guest houses could also come in handy in the event of a minor home emergency, such as a plumbing problem that renders your own home temporarily unlivable.

UPGRADING YOUR HOME NOW WILL MAKE PARTING WITH IT EASIER

There is no guarantee that you will be in your home forever. With high-quality upgrades, good maintenance, and an expert realtor, selling your home, or even passing it on, will be a much smoother process.
