Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll probably ever make, which is why taking care of it is so important. You want to protect your investment by finding ways to increase your property value and by keeping your home secure. This will also greatly increase your resale value, should you decide to sell your home in the future.
From curb appeal to safety features, we have some great tips on how to add value to your home.
There are several options available to help you accomplish this goal. For example, a well-maintained lawn will add curb appeal to your property, which in turn will increase its value. It will also help make your home safer by deterring would-be burglars. And the best part is, it’s very affordable. According to LawnStarter, the average price of lawn mowing is $36, so it’s not going to break the bank.
When the yard is free of debris, the grass is mowed and the hedges are trimmed, it makes it harder for anyone to sneak around your property without being noticed. This deters criminals from breaking into your home because they don’t want to be out in the open when committing a crime.
In addition to keeping your lawn maintained, here are three ways to add value to your home that will also keep you safer.
However, if the criminal is persistent and continues breaking in, a burglar alarm will limit the amount of time he can spend in the home. He knows the authorities were notified the second the alarm went off and law enforcement will be arriving within minutes. As a result, he won’t have time to take too many valuables.
It doesn’t matter if you start with the basic burglar alarm system or go all out by installing a modern Smartphone alarm system. Installing a burglar alarm will help protect your family and personal property in addition to adding value to your home.
Security cameras can also help you keep an eye on your home, family and pets when you’re away. You can check in to make sure everything is fine if your child gets home from school before you get home from work. Or keep an eye on your pets to see how they are doing while you’re gone. This type of modern technology will certainly help protect your family and personal belongings while increasing your property value.
When there’s a fire, every second counts. The fire alarm will alert firefighters immediately, improving the response time. This quick response saves lives and helps to reduce the damage fire and smoke does to your home.
Adding one or more of these security devices to your home not only increases your property value and keeps you safer but it may also save you money. Many insurance companies will lower your rates when you install these systems because you’re taking steps to protect your property.
