Invest in Your Home! | First Volunteer Bank

Congratulations on being a homeowner! Whether you became a homeowner this year or years ago, there is no greater feeling than knowing you are investing in a piece of property that you can call your own!

However, as with any investment, there comes a time where it might need a little TLC. Our team at First Volunteer Bank wants to offer you some tips on tackling home improvement projects that won’t just help maintain your home but will also add financial value to it, as well!

Let’s take a look at some projects you might want to consider:

Remodel Your Bathroom

While your bathroom might be the smallest room in your house, that doesn’t mean you can ignore it. In fact, remodeling your bathroom can lead to approximately a 74% return on your investment!

Therefore, consider taking time to give the smallest room in your home some care this year by adding new fixtures, more storage space and freshening up the paint on the walls!

Open a Window to New Windows

Not only can new windows bring about around a 79% return on the investment, but they can also save you money on your monthly energy bills.

If your current windows are allowing heat or cool air to escape, it makes your HVAC unit work harder, which in turn pumps up your power bill. So adding new windows to your home may help you reduce your expenses while improving the look and feel of your home. That’s a win, right?

Use Attic Space for Living Space

Are you needing an extra bedroom, office space or even just an extra room for storage? Instead of thinking you have to move, why not use the unused attic space as an additional room in your home?

The return on that investment could be around 84%—wow! That’s especially important when you look to sell your home, because buyers are always looking for additional, useful space.
