The neighborhood you live in has just as much to do with the value of your home as the features of the house itself. The right amenities in a community can increase the value of your home significantly. Read on to find out the most desirable features of any area.


Places To Walk


Whether itís immaculate sidewalks, hiking trail, or parks, anywhere that you can be outdoors and walk easily increases the value of the nearby homes. This is because itís great for families to get out, get some exercise, and not have to go very far. This feature can bring in anywhere from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars above your homeís asking price.  


Trees


We often take trees for granted, but trees that have grown up around a property can add some value to the home. Think of it in the context of, however natural a neighborhood is, the higher the value of the homes in it. Before you think about cutting down any trees around your house, consider the fact that grown trees can increase the cost of a home by up to 5%!


History


Neighborhoods that are surrounded by historic districts, landmark homes, or other places of historical interest have the higher value. For one, these are usually walkable neighborhoods. Second, your area has a story unlike any other. Itís a fun place to get out and explore. All homes in these historic districts arenít ancient; you can find some newer construction homes in these areas, which means that thereís truly something for everyone! 


Dog Friendly


A dog-friendly neighborhood is a valuable neighborhood. People love places that they can take their dogs like dog parks. This especially holds true in the city where yard space is limited. Even better is a neighborhood where dogs can be seen in restaurants and coffee shops. If you can drive around the block and see people walking dogs everywhere, itís a good bet that itís dog-friendly! People love their pets and want them to be a part of the family, so they need to live in a place that allows them to do that. 


All The Essentials


If your neighborhood is near all of the essential things that people need on a daily basis, your homeís value may increase. Places like grocery stores, pharmacies, shopping malls, hospitals, and safety support services all play a role in improving the value of homes in a neighborhood.


A Sense Of Community


If a neighborhood has community groups, a neighborhood watch, or other organizations that help to bring about a community feel, your home may be a bit more valuable than you think it is.

Sooner or later, just about everyone invests in a major home remodeling project, like redoing a bathroom or updating a kitchen. Those kinds of changes almost always have a transformative effect on the appearance, value, and marketability of your house.

However, if you own a recently built home or simply aren't ready to spend $15,000 (give or take) for a major remodeling project, then there are still plenty of less expensive ways to make big improvements.

A piecemeal, but cohesive approach to upgrading and redecorating your home can spread out the cost for you, without having to wait years to enjoy the results. The perfect example is replacing outdated kitchen counter tops, sinks, and/or cabinets. If your kitchen cabinets look like they've been around since the era of black-and-white TV, then it might be time to replace or reface them. Refacing cabinets is an option many people consider because it's typically less expensive and time consuming than a full replacement. The finished result, however, can be almost as impressive as getting new cabinets. With a little imagination, small touches like a new back splash, cabinet pulls, or even a fresh coat of paint can breath new life into the appearance of your kitchen area.

But Where to Begin?

If you're unsure what area of your home to prioritize for redecorating or remodeling, the kitchen is often a good place to start -- especially if it's a frequent gathering place for family and friends. Bathrooms are another area of the house that are typically in dire need of some TLC. If one or more of your bathrooms are looking outdated and worse for the wear, there are many ways to spruce it up without having to spend a bundle of money. Repainting the walls and ceiling, installing a new sink and vanity, or even putting in fancy new faucets can help invigorate a tired looking bathroom.

Here's a simple fix: Replacing faded old bath towels with fluffy, colorful new ones is another small, but effective way to upgrade the look and feel of your bathroom. Another inexpensive way to upgrade the appearance of your bathrooms is to clean the dirty, discolored grout between your tiles. You can either hire a professional service to get it done or tackle the job yourself.

From a curb appeal standpoint, some relatively inexpensive enhancements you can make include repainting your front steps, replacing an old front door with a snazzy new one, or simply washing the outside of your house and windows. It doesn't take more than a few seasons of weather changes and other conditions for environmental pollutants, pollen, dust, bird droppings, and splatters of mud to give your house a very unappealing grunge look!

If your home improvement budget is too tight, right now, to invest in new counter tops, bathroom vanities, new kitchen appliances, and cabinet work, remember that a series of small changes done over a period of time can significantly enhance the appearance and beauty of your home -- both inside and out!

A home inspection is a valuable opportunity for a property buyer. If a homebuyer knows how to plan for an inspection, he or she should have no trouble getting the most out of this opportunity.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you get ready for a home inspection.

1. Hire an Expert Home Inspector

Not all home inspectors are created equal. And if you make a poor home inspector selection, you risk missing out on potential problems that may result in costly, time-intensive home repairs down the line.

When it comes to finding the right home inspector, it pays to be diligent. As such, it is crucial to allocate time and resources to conduct an extensive search for an expert house inspector. Because if you have a qualified home inspector at your side, you can get the support you need to perform an in-depth property evaluation.

Ask a home inspector for client referrals before you make your final decision. That way, you can find out what past clients have to say about a home inspector and determine if this professional is the right choice for you.

2. Attend Your Home Inspection

Although you are not required to attend your home inspection, it generally is a good idea to walk through a property with a professional inspector. By doing so, you may be able to gain insights that won't necessarily appear in your house inspection report.

You may want to take notes during your home inspection as well. If you remain diligent throughout your home inspection, you can understand a house's strengths and weaknesses. And as a result, you'll be better equipped than ever before to decide whether to move forward with a home purchase.

3. Ask Questions

There is no need to leave anything to chance, especially when you buy a house. Thus, if you have concerns or questions during a home inspection, address them immediately.

Remember, a home inspector is happy to respond to any of your property concerns or questions. He or she can provide honest, unbiased responses to your queries and help you make an informed decision about a house purchase.

As you prepare for a home inspection, you may want to consult with a real estate agent too. This housing market professional can offer recommendations and suggestions to help you get ready for a home inspection and put you in touch with the top home inspectors in your area. Plus, a real estate agent will help you review a house inspection report so you can determine whether to proceed with a home purchase.

For those who want to get the most out of a house inspection, you may want to prepare as much as possible. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can streamline the home inspection preparation process. Then, you can enter a home inspection with a plan in hand and use this evaluation to decide if a house will be able to serve you well both now and in the future.
