From beautiful hardwood flooring to solar panels and other investments, here are 5 features that add value to your home in the long run.

These Beautiful Features Add To The Resale Value Of Your Home

#1: Updated Kitchens

The kitchen is the heart of your home. So it’s no surprise that it’s also one of the first things prospective buyers will look at! Investing in an upgraded kitchen will add a touch of luxury to dinner time, and will also add value in the long term.

When looking to add value to your home start with the kitchen. You’ll especially want to focus on smarter, stainless steel appliances that buyers look for. That’s why many of our kitchens include energy-efficient, steel features! You may also consider updated lighting and shaker cabinets.

Looking to go beyond the basics? Draw some inspiration from Residence 5 at The Summit at Whitney Ranch in Rocklin, CA. This beautiful home includes optional kitchen features such as: 

  • An elegant built-in wine rack
  • A kitchen island
  • A walk-in pantry
  • Countertop cabinetry lighting

#2: Luxurious Bathrooms

Don’t overlook the bathroom when seeking to add value to your home. Modernizing your bathroom creates a peaceful retreat from the day. 

For example, take a peek inside Residence Four at The Traditionals in Sutter Park. The luxurious, spa-like master bathrooms in this home feature free-standing soaking tubs, along with beautiful, updated countertops, cabinetry, and lighting.

#3: Wood Floors

Beyond adding timeless beauty, wood floors also help your home’s resale value. More and more, people are searching for flooring that’s pet-proof and kid-proof without sacrificing elegant modern style, and wood floors are the perfect way to achieve that.

For inspiration, the above picture features the elegant wood flooring in the kitchen of Residence Four at Traditions at Poppy Lane.

#4: Outdoor Spaces

When considering your home’s resale value, don’t forget to get outside! Offering creative, beautiful outdoor spaces offers you a beautiful, green respite from the day, and also adds real value.

Start by considering your landscape. Trees, a garden, or other greenery are a great place to start, as is investing in landscape lighting. You may also consider adding an outdoor room! Laying a patio or adding a kitchen outside creates an opportunity for outdoor living. 

For inspiration, explore the beautiful rooftop patios at the Garden Homes in Sutter Park, or the stunning outdoor room options at Bridle Gate!

#5: Efficient and Tech-Friendly

Finally, you can save money on your monthly energy bill and add value by investing in solar panels. On average, solar panels boost a home’s value by 4.1%! If you’re considering this earth and wallet-friendly investment, consider the beautiful homes at Poppy Lane in Elk Grove, all of which come solar-ready.
