It may seem odd to think about selling your house while you are just starting to build! After years of planning and saving you are finally there.
Building a home is one of the best investments you can make. And like any investment, you need to plan for the future! As life can give us twists and turns you never know when you might need to make a change, perhaps even selling your forever home. Experts say, even if you plan for this build to be your last home, make sure to keep 'home resale' in mind when building. So there is no better time to plan than while you are in the design process.
So what are the best up-grades? Which upgrades will give you the most bang for your buck? According to recent studies by real estate experts, below are some options you may consider that add value for your home resale!
Believe it or not, this a priority for home buyers ! Older homes often come with single pane windows with low insulating properties which can equal a drafty home in the winter and sweltering one in the summer. The good news is that with your new Reality home our windows will give you cost saving energy benefits all year long! And with our customize design you can add windows, like a bay window, to take advantage of your beautiful views, at the same time adding value to your investment!
Kitchens - There is No Better Resale Option
Julia Child said "People who love to eat are the best people". Of course that happens in a kitchen! New home builder source says that kitchens that have upgrades are very desirable.
What are some upgrades you can do to your kitchen?
- Open floor plans that encourage families getting together and entertaining.
- Large center islands that offer seating as well as storage.

Drawn on, spilled on and trampled daily, a home’s flooring really takes a beating. Because you want to keep this workhorse feature looking great, it’s ideal to upgrade your flooring from the start. If budget allows, experts suggest upgrading to laminate, hardwood or another natural alternative. If you choose carpet it should be both plush and stain-resistant (such as our Mohawk Smartstrand carpet), especially in the home’s high-traffic areas.
Take the time to think about your flooring!
