It is exciting to complete a home renovation project. When you take a look at your beautiful new kitchen complete with granite countertops and a shiny new built-in wine cooler, you think, “What’s next?” The inside transformation will most definitely increase the value of your home, but many forget to remember that the outside is what draws consumers in. Pulling up to the front of your home gives a potential buyer his or her first impression of the home. “It’s great, but…” is a common phrase when something is off in a buyer’s mind. You want top dollar for your property so making sure the outside matches the inside is crucial to increase the property value.
Generate curb appeal.
Giving your home curb appeal will escalate its property value. A manicured lawn, a custom stone sidewalk and a smoothly paved asphalt driveway are all factors that contribute to curb appeal. Repointing your chimney is also a good way to give your home the “oomph” factor it needs. If your chimney looks like it is not supposed to be attached to your house, it may be time to have it re-done.
Upscale your home with brick.
Using brick to add property value is very common and is a mason’s job. Residing your home with brick not only increases its appearance but makes it more energy efficient. Brick and stonework have become more popular among new homebuyers. The more people want houses like this, the higher the price of the home. It is a smart choice to add stonework to your front and back yards.
Create ambiance with stonework in the backyard.
Having a patio for guests and family to sit on is wonderful during the spring, summer, and fall months. It allows for more space to entertain. Friends will be impressed with a stone patio complete with an outdoor fireplace. This air of elegance increases the property value significantly. The higher the quality of materials is, the higher the price of your home will be.
