Increasing Your New Home’s Value

Likely one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, building a new home is a smart investment.  As you consider the elements to include in your new construction home, there are some ways you can increase the value of that home.  At Sekas Homes, we’ve been building homes for close to forty years and our team knows how to help you maximize the value of your investment – for today and in the years ahead.

Consider these items when trying to increase the long-term value of your new home:

1. Location

When it comes to adding value, location is everything. In general, it makes sense to pay for what you cannot change – and your new home’s location is one of those things that won’t change.  You could build a beautiful home with amazing details and features, but if it’s on a subpar lot or in a bad location, that lessens the overall value of your investment. In general, it’s worth spending the extra money for a prime location, and it makes your long-term investment more sound. If you’re considering a homesite on which to build, we’d love to review the plan with you.  Our On Your Lot program will streamline the process for you and will help to ensure you find a place that’s ideal for you and your home design.

For those who own a home in the perfect location but wish that residence met their current lifestyle needs, consider letting Sekas Homes purchase your property/land and rebuild a new home on it for you! Our We Buy Properties program has worked for numerous individuals looking to either sell quickly or to sell and rebuild with a seasoned professional team.

2. Kitchen

The kitchen can be a deciding factor for most people when it comes time to resell a home – and many spend the money to renovate an outdated kitchen prior to sale, typically paying dividends. According to Better Homes and Gardens, “homeowners can expect a return of about 52% on their investment in a new kitchen if they sell their home.” When you build a new home with Sekas, you have a host of choices to create that on-trend kitchen with proper workflow, updated appliances, and finishes. It’s an area of your home where you’re going to be spending a lot of time, and you want the design and space to be perfect for your lifestyle.

3. Add Square Footage

Whenever possible, add more space—never less! Increasing square footage in primary living areas gives you and your family more room to grow and more options for how to use a space.   All of the Sekas Homes single family home designs feature ways for you to customize your interior living areas, as well as your exterior living environment.  Maximize your living space – you won’t be sorry!
