If your home is hard to separate from the rest of the cookie cutter homes on the block, you may want to think about adding a home improvement to increase value and increase traffic for potential sales. With green home improvements all the rage, now’s the perfect time to add a green home improvement. Check out my list of the top three green home improvements that can help you sell your home in today’s tough market.
On Demand Water Heater
One of my favorite green home improvements that helps to hook potential buyers to a home. Instant hot-water on demand is not a new green product, in fact they’ve been around for decades.
But on demand water heaters are not for everyone. If your home has four or more bedrooms, your green investment is going to pay off. Three bedrooms or less and your just not going to use as much hot water as to make a conventional tank water heater run inefficiently.
Installing an on demand water heater is very efficient for a family of four or more and can be a wise investment. Savings alone each year generate enough money to make this green home improvement and attractive purchase for a larger family.
Easily one of the easiest DIY projects for homeowners who want to add a green home improvement investment. A home insulated up to today’s tough standards can significantly improve the energy-efficiency of any home, and its easier than you think.
Batt insulation is the easiest type of insulation for homeowners to use themselves. These rolled up balls of pink, itchy fluff can be easily unrolled in crawl and attic spaces, cut to length and left to conserve you energy and make you money.
I saved this relatively unknown green home improvement for last, because it’s the best. Xeriscaping is the process of using native plants and foliage throughout the yard. They are drought tolerant, low/no maintenance and require no fertilizer, yet they are always amazingly beautiful.
It’s a good way to get prospective home buyers to your home to have a look and help you sell your home as cheaply and quickly as possible.
