An Economical House Lift for Las Vegas Homeowners

May 23, 2016 08:33 AM

With a large inventory of Luxury homes in the Las Vegas market, many homeowners are finding themselves staying on their current residence for longer than originally expected. As a result, the spring is an excellent time to make those home improvements that you may be putting aside for a long time.

An economical house lift for Las Vegas homeowners will achieve a higher percentage returned than others. You should focus on functional investments such as adding a bedroom or bathroom if necessary rather than lifestyle home improvements like a pool.

Here are the following suggestions to improve your Las Vegas homes that will help you get the highest return on your investment:

Give your kitchen and bathroom a new look

Simple improvements like painting, refinishing surfaces and upgrading appliances will return more than a full remodel. You should consider cosmetic upgrades in your bathroom such as fresh plastic laminate counter tops and new toilet seats. Kitchens and bathrooms should have modern lighting, new faucets, cabinet hardware and cabinet door faces. All of these key spaces should look bright and clean.

Add a bedroom or bathroom if necessary

You should base these additions in relation to other Las Vegas home in your neighborhood. Like for example, if houses in your neighborhood have an average of 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths and you have 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, adding a ½ bath will definitely pay off. Additionally, if all the homes in your neighborhood have at least 3 bedroom and you only have 2, it will put your home at disadvantage. An additional bedroom will translate into a higher investment.

Paint a fresh coat

Your home is more inviting to potential buyers if it’s freshly painted, especially the exterior. Particularly do this on the front door and window shutters, and consider repainting any rooms inside the home that have stains or cracks.

 Purchase new windows

New windows can dramatically change the appeal of a room. Changing single pane windows for high-end double pane windows not only looks more beautiful but will save you a lot of money on heating bills. Make sure that the window panes and windows are clean and shiny if you decide to keep the current ones.

Restore the siding

It is more economical to use a vinyl siding because it is low maintenance and last a long time. Shiny new siding can add value to homes in neighborhoods where vinyl siding has become more common. Remember that it is possible to replace a single vinyl panel of siding if it’s not necessary to re-do your entire Las Vegas home.
