What Can You Do to Increase the Real Estate Value of Your Home?

By Al Donohue

If you have a home in Ridgewood, NJ, you’ve already hit the jackpot in a number of ways. Ridgewood is synonymous with affluence and is easily as safe and pleasant to the eyes. But we all want to do more to increase our property value. For one, this often makes it more enjoyable for us. However, it also means you get a return on your home when you sell it, just like a traditional investment.

Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do for a Ridgewood home to make sure you get more back when you finally sell it. The obvious recommendation is to first ensure the basement is finished. This is a no brainer.

However, if you really want to add value, try installing a pool. Everyone will love it when the summers get hot in New Jersey, as they often do, plus people will be willing to pay far more for a house that has said pool.

Another simple solution is to put in hardwood  floors as these are always a preferable choice to linoleum or other, cheaper options you commonly see.

So don’t rest on your laurels no matter how great your Ridgewood home is. Instead, consider the above options for increasing your enjoyment and investment.
