Five things around the home to invest in to automatically increase your home’s resale value
There is a growing trend in the real estate market to highlight a home’s energy upgrades, so going green will be more than just an investment into a highly eco-friendly future. Here are just some of the upgrades that you should consider that can skyrocket your home’s resale value:
Appliances. Your appliances count for around 15% of your home’s energy consumption, so it is a worthwhile investment to consider switching your current appliances for ones with a better Energy Star rating. On average, you can save over $245 over the life of the machine.
Proper Insulation. According to Energy Star, homeowners can save up to $200 a year in heating and cooling costs by investing in air sealing and attic insulation improvements. Plus, proper insulation adds a 116% return on investment, meaning that your home can experience year-round comfort while your wallet doesn’t have to take the hit!
Replacing Windows. Though replacing windows does require an initial investment at first, they can substantially increase your home’s resale value by as much as $10,794. This upgrade is well worth the initial payment, as proper window installation can reduce your monthly energy bills by up to 15%. If you're replacing multiple windows and doors, you might as well get free rebates in the meantime!
Heating and Cooling Systems. These systems account for about 43% of your energy bill, so investing in a reliable HVAC system is an absolute must if you want to increase your home’s resale value. While addressing your home’s heating and cooling usage, keep in mind that any leaky pipes and ducts around your home contribute to the biggest energy waste around your home. Seal your ducts, and watch your energy savings accelerate.
Tankless or ‘on demand’ water heaters warm up the water without the use of a large storage tank and you only use the water that you need. Tankless systems don’t contribute to energy loss that occurs with traditional storage water heaters while allowing you to only use water for the things you need most like showers, dishes and cooking. No more paying for energy that you never use!
