The most important renovations that will add value to my home

If you’re looking to add value to your home, the right renovations can make all the difference. From improving energy efficiency to increasing curb appeal, there are several important renovations that can help increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most important renovations that can help add value to your home when the time to sell comes.

We’ll look at energy-efficient upgrades, aesthetic improvements, and other ways to make sure your house looks its best before putting it on the market.

The Façade

The façade is the first thing people see. The façade is the book cover and as such it is what will make people turn around to see it. Here are some ideas to make it shine.

Color: First and most apparent facade improvement. There are thousands of possible combinations to make your home stand out. Try mixing neutral colors and bright ones. 

Stone: Stone covering is long-lasting and adds texture, shades, and color. It does not require covering the façade entirely but rather to be placed strategically, where it looks best. 

Railings: Short walls surrounding balconies are not attractive at all. Exchange them for railings, which are available in various designs and materials. 

Glass: If you have a non-load-bearing wall, why not replace it with a window? This works great in common areas, such as the living room. 

Wood: Just like Stone, treated Wood stands well and does not require covering the whole façade. Choose the areas well and enjoy the deluxification gained by your home. 

Please, do not forget to eliminate any unnecessary elements from the façade. 


Before any home showings, it is convenient to ensure all furnishings work properly. It’s disappointing for a buyer to realize that they will need to invest money in repairs after they buy the home. 

Draining pipes, water taps and working toilet facilities speak volumes about the home. A new water heater, solar panels, electrical fittings, light bulbs and water and gas pipes in good condition are always a good idea. 

Bear in mind also specialized equipment. For areas with extreme weather conditions, pre-installed air conditioning or heating for example. 

If you are looking to replace an appliance, make sure it includes inverter motors. This innovation regulates the voltage, current and frequency of an appliance. In addition, the motor is smaller.

This technology is mainly implemented in washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners. For refrigerators, for example, the motor adapts according to the required cooling. This means better performance and savings in energy consumption.

Finishing Touches

Do not forget finishing touches, as those provide the extra that will make the buyer fall in love. In artificial lighting, outdoor spotlights may be hidden or at ceiling level. Banisters and railings may be simple but nice. 

Devices such as video doorbells or automated garage doors aren’t as expensive as they used to be. Inside the home, you can install hidden speakers in the living room or on the terrace for relaxing days. 

Remember to get rid of any old voluminous contraptions. 

It’s money well spent

Remember, it’s not an expense but rather an investment. Each implemented improvement will increase the sale price of your home and therefore your earnings. In Casas en Valladolid, we have information and top-notch consultation to sell your home in the best possible conditions. Come see for yourself!
