Looking to Sell Your Home in 2019? Here’s Why Insulation Investment is Important
As we continue to move through winter, many homeowners will be thinking about selling their home and moving somewhere new. Spring is a great time to sell your home so you can settle in your new place before the summer months, but now is the time to start preparing your home for sale.
One of the most nerve wracking factors when it comes to the sale of your home is the home inspector.
A home inspector works on behalf of the buyer, and will check over the property to ensure that there are no deficiencies or aspects wrong with the building before the purchase agreement becomes final.
This is why it’s important to invest some money into your home before you sell it. Perhaps the most important of all the renovations you could do as a seller is ensuring your home’s insulation is ready for the new owner.
Thankfully, with the advancement in technology, insulation needs or even asbestos removal are extremely safe, affordable, and can give you a valuable return on investment.
Georgian Insulation has listed three reasons why investing in improved insulation can translate into an increase in home value:
1 - Sell a more efficient home
Not only does insulation make your property environmentally friendly, it also provides significant cost savings for homeowners. With spray foam insulation by Walltite Eco, buyers get a lifetime of lowered energy bills.
This is a great selling point for any home, particularly in a time where consumers are increasingly more concerned about rising hydro costs.
With the housing market continues to soar in price, buyers are looking for long-term benefits when it comes to purchasing a new property. By improving your insulation and and giving them a monthly discount on their bills, you are not only solving a problem for your buyer but you are also increasing the value and demand for your home.
2 - Get asbestos and vermiculite removed
Asbestos can be a terrifying word for a new homeowner, and hearing that word often puts people off a purchase. Little do they do, a professional can remove asbestos from a house incredibly fast and easily.
To save your new buyer from worry, ensure a professional insulator checks over your house before you put it on the market and if there are any traces of asbestos or vermiculite ask them to remove it. This is a safe and quick process that will improve the chances of you selling your house for a good price.
3 - Make your home environmentally friendly
With global warming and its effects on our environment becoming an increasingly talked about subject, many people are aiming to live a more environmentally-friendly life. Today, there are many solutions for insulation including eco-friendly insulation, which provide lifetime support.
By installing insulation that transforms your house into a green home, you will be opening your property up to a whole new environmentally-conscious market. By providing buyers with the peace-of-mind that they have environmentally-friendly insulation, you can increase your home’s value and improve demand.
