Over the past few years, we’ve seen the housing market completely transform, but one constant has remained. Real estate is a fantastic investment if you know how to do it right. So, before you dust off that outdated fall home improvement checklist, let’s take a look at how the changes in 2022 have impacted home upgrades and which projects will give you the best bang for your buck!
It will come as no surprise that home offices are practically an essential asset to a home in 2022. Global Workplace Analytics reported that the number of people who work from home has risen by 159% since 2009, and they want that newly renovated home office. Since the demand for home office space has greatly increased over the years, renovating or introducing that space into your home will also dramatically boost your property value.
In the same vein as home offices, remote workers and residents stuck indoors at the height of the pandemic realized they wanted more comfort from their outdoor living spaces. Homebuyers have more options than ever, meaning your property needs to stand out. A renovated outdoor space can do exactly that, with an immense return on investment. The key is to ensure that these additions, whether a spacious pool, stunning garden, or cozy living space on the patio, fit the property.
