What is an ROI? It stands for “return on investment” and it is used in many different industries, including construction and real estate. For homeowners, getting a return on your investment for an upgrade to your kitchen or bathroom means seeing an actual increase in the resale value of your home as a result of the remodeling work that you had done. The best way to get a solid return on your investment is to purchase quality all wood construction cabinets and make smart choices for any kitchen and bathroom countertops that you buy. This is not one of those times that you can afford to go “cheap” – especially if you have plans on getting an appraisal of your home when you are done.
Why All Wood Cabinets?
A lot of the materials that are available today for South Coast kitchen cabinets are not of the same quality that they once were. Bathroom vanities and kitchen cupboards that look good on the outside, but just aren’t made out of strong, durable, long-lasting materials on the inside. It really pays in actual real estate value dollars to invest in all wood construction cabinets that are built well and designed to stand the test of time. When your goal is to get a solid return on your investment and increase the value of your home, the smart choice is to go with high quality materials every step of the way.
Just because you are spending a lot of money doesn’t mean that it is a worthwhile investment. If you aren’t working with a contractor to do your remodeling, at least take time to consult with an expert on what type of materials will provide you with the results that you desire. Do some research on the current trends in bathroom vanities and kitchen cupboards, but avoid overly trendy designs that might be popular today, but fall out of grace in just a couple of years. Avoid designs that are too “out there” and “off the beaten path,” choosing instead to stick with traditional, classic styles that will appeal to a wider range of potential buyers.
Working With a Pro
Even if you are doing the work yourself, you can consult with a professional who can help you determine whether or not the work you are doing will give you a return on your investment. Some will charge you a fee for a consultation, while others will give you free advice on who you should contact in the local area that can help you make smart choices for your bathroom vanities and kitchen cupboards.
Some of the professionals that might be able to help you include:
- realtors – a local real estate agent who has a good handle on what local prospective buyers are looking for and what is available on the market can help you choose upgrades and projects that will attract buyers if you are planning on selling your home in the near future
- contractors – another great temperature gauge for the local real estate market, contractors know the type of work that their clients are hiring them to do the most and they know the type of designs that they are being hired to remove or take out in order to increase the value of the home
- architects – residential designers often work independently of building contractors and also have their finger on the pulse of what’s hot – and what’s not; if you have a good personal or working relationship with a local architect, you can ask them to help you choose the best style South Coast kitchen cabinets to match your home’s style
- appraisers – while you might have to hire an appraiser to give you an official report on how much your home is worth, you might be able to get some free tips and help with figuring out what areas need the most improvement in order to gain the biggest return on your investment
The Bottom Line: How Much Is It Worth?
According to recent studies, homeowners are more likely to get a larger return on their investment for improvements to bathrooms and kitchens if they use higher quality, all wood construction cabinets. Additional features, such as kitchen and bathroom countertops, should also be of a higher quality.
