5 Ways To Increase Home Values in Westchester, New York
The easiest ways to increase your home’s market appeal, value and enjoyment is to paint. Pain interior rooms, your exterior and paint your doors. Many people can paint their home by themselves. This saves money over hiring a painting company. The best thing to do is buy a highly rated paint. Cheap paint is not good for wall coverage or appearance. In addition, use paint colors that are neutral. The area where you can take more color risks is the front door. An inviting front door color works well. Many homeowners paint the door red, green or gray. These colors accentuate the front entry while adding curb appeal.
When you look at the front, side and back of your house, is it well landscaped? A beautiful landscape attracts buyers and ultimately improves home prices. If you purchase small trees, shrubs and plant they cost less than mature foliage. Unlike most items, over time the trees, bushes and plants grow making them more valuable. When you plant, think of your yard as a paint canvas. Sketch out where each of the flowers or trees will be planted. By doing this, you select which side of your house is in the most need. Plants and trees bring the neighborhood to life. Start small and plant weekly. Over time, your home will be more marketable if you decide to sell or rent.
One of the areas in the home that is often overlook is the plumbing. Plumbing includes sinks, faucets, hardware and pipes. Changing dated plumbing fixtures, you improve the appearance of the bathrooms and kitchen. Bathroom and kitchen faucets come in different styles, materials and functions. Many homes in Westchester County were built more than 25 years ago. As a result, some of the plumbing is dated or in need of mechanical repair. Fixing the pipes and updating the fixtures is a guaranteed way to appeal to prospects. Recently, while pressure washing a deck in Scarsdale, our customer told us they had just updated their plumbing. They did it themselves in less than 45 minutes. Furthermore, they said they painted the rooms which made them more inviting.
Taking pride in your home and neighborhood increase home values. It also keeps the neighborhood clean and encourages others to do the same. When cutting your grass, planting or out for a walk, if you see trash pick it up. Even if the sidewalks and streets are county owned, helping to maintain them benefits all residents and home values.
As mentioned earlier, real estate agents and private home owners call us when renting or selling their homes. This is because the home exterior which includes the house, roof, siding, patio, deck, fence and walkways greatly affect home appearance. Therefore, a dirty roof with black streaks, mold, mildew, lichens or moss depreciates home prices. As well as decks and patios that need to be pressure washed. And of course, a dirty house and siding make a home look in need of repair.
Are there other benefits to pressure washing my home?
We get calls from homeowners in Chappaqua, Scarsdale, Katonah, White Plains, Bronxville, Armonk, Pleasantville and almost every town in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess County for pressure washing services. Often times these pressure washing calls are because the home exterior is dirty and they want it cleaned. Other times, the insurance company is about to cancel the homeowners policy because the roof has black streaks, lichens, moss, mold or mildew.
Even home insurance companies determine a home’s worth by its appearance and signs of deterioration. Most times a dirty roof with black streaks or even mold, mildew, lichens or moss does not to be replaced. We have soft washed many roofs with these conditions and returned them to looking great. Unfortunately though, a roof with dirty conditions is often viewed as damaged and in need of replacement.
Replacing a roof can cost 10 times the price of cleaning dirt streaks, moss, mold, mildew and lichens from the roof. But, insurance companies are not roof companies. Roofing companies make more profits by telling homeowners black streaks are a sign of roof damage and need replacement. This is not true. Most roofs can last 25 years if cleaned every 5 years taken care of properly.
Roofing companies sells roofs not roof cleaning as their making profit machine.
