Home Improvement Tips


If you are looking to sell your luxury home in Longboat Key, Florida, or any high-end area, there are a few home improvement projects that can help you get the most out of your investment. ┬áSome renovations produce a higher return than others, and it’s important to know which additions will add the most value to your home. If you are considering putting your luxury home on the market and want to know more about how to stage your home for sale or about the convenience of luxury home auctions, please contact us anytime. If you are looking to make a few improvements before you list your home, we have a few ideas on how to get the most out of your time and money.

The most commonly overlooked area of your home that can add significant value with just a few tweaks is the backyard area. In warmer cities like Longboat Key, it is especially important to be able to show potential buyers a lovely backyard space. An outdoor kitchen is a wonderful amenity that many luxury homes in warmer climates offer as it helps keep the house cool and offers a nice place for afternoon barbecues with the family. If a full kitchen is a bit more than you want to commit to, then opt to add a deck or an outdoor hot tub. Something as simple as a nice hammock installed in a lush area can enhance the appeal of the backyard and help potential buyers imagine living there.

Another great way to add value to your home that is currently trending is to add smart home features. Potential buyers love the new smart homes and it’s easier to add these buzz words to your listing than you might think. Consider a small but impressive addition like putting in LED lighting throughout the house or installing a ring enabled video doorbell that allows you to see and speak to anyone at your door right from your smart phone. These features are great talking points for your Realtor and can keep your house looking and feeling modern.

There are also amenities you can add to a luxury home that are simple additions that do not require an improvement project but will add value. A separate wine cooler in the kitchen is a lovely perk for the wine lover. Items like this can help potential buyers envision a lifestyle in the home. This is what you want to happen when a buyer sees your home.
