Home Improvements You Should Use Your Home Equity for This Summer

Face it home improvements are fun and make you feel good when they are done! Have you ever wanted to improve your home, but not had the funds to do it? Consider taking out a home equity loan. This is where you borrow money based on the amount of mortgage you’ve paid or the amount of increase that your home has received. If you then put this money into your house, you will increase its worth. You’ll also be enjoying the benefits of an improved home. Here are some ideas of things you can do to improve your home.

Home Improvements: Room Additions

If you’ve always wanted a guest room or you plan to grow your family, now is a great time to add a bedroom. You can do this by splitting a room or adding an addition to the side of your home. If you choose the latter option, make sure that you have the work done by professionals. Doing the work yourself could result in violating city building codes. It also might not look as nice. By adding a room to your home, you will increase the total room count which is an important factor in the evaluation of a home’s worth.

Backyard Amenities

You can also use your home equity loan to improve your backyard. If you’re looking to make the place more fun, you could put in a pool or basketball/tennis court. Pools are fun to have but can also require a lot of maintenance. Make sure you know what is required of you before you invest in this option. If you don’t have the room for a tennis court, you could try a pickleball court.

If you’re looking for more functionality, you could put in a deck, clubhouse, or outdoor kitchen. These can be great gathering places for parties when you want to spend a little more time outdoors. These types of amenities are really attractive to buyers and increase the worth of your home.

Home Improvements: Home Theater

Sometimes it is nice to just stay inside and relax after a long day. What better place to do that then in your very own home theater? Considering recent events, a home theater may soon become the only way to get the theater experience. Many movies are starting to skip the theater and go straight to streaming services. It’s fairly likely that the traditional movie theater industry is going to disappear entirely. With your own home theater, you will bring movies to life in your own home.

If you’re worried about going deeper in debt, talk with a financial advisor. If you reinvest your money into your home, then you will be offsetting a lot of your debt by an increase in equity. Do your research and you will find that your financials will be better off than you think.
