What Lowers Home Value?

Whether you plan on selling your home soon, or in the future, you want to get as much value as possible. Here at Dragon Scale Inc., we’ve been providing Marylanders with our remodeling services for years, and we can help you too. We wanted to take some time today to talk about some renovations that can decrease your property value.

Maintenance Backlogs

Do you have a list of repairs that you need to get to around the house? The longer you wait, the more costly the repairs will be. Selling your home will be difficult with a list of maintenance issues, so before you sell, make sure you cross off all those to-dos on your list.

Foreclosures in Your Neighborhood

Foreclosures on neighboring homes can affect the value of your home. Appraisers typically compare home selling prices with other homes in your neighborhood. Having foreclosed homes in your neighborhood will depress the value of your own home, even if it’s not being foreclosed on.

An Unkempt Lawn

Have you fallen behind on maintaining your yard? If so, then you should seriously consider cleaning it up. Having a messy yard will drastically affect your home’s value, so if you’re planning on selling, you need to have your yard serviced by a Maryland remodeling company. And while you want your lawn looking good, some people opt to have intricate hardscaping installed, and while this can add value, it can also detract from your home’s value, as the new owners may not have the same tastes as you.

Converting Your Garage

Converting your garage into a gym, playroom, or home office may seem like a good idea, but it can greatly affect the value of your home. Keeping your garage as a spot to park cars will make your home much easier to sell.
