It’s great to buy a home — whether it is for you, you and your partner, or you and your family, owning a home is something that most people aspire to, especially in 2023.
All romanticism aside, though, a home has another purpose. It’s an investment, and, like most investments, if you put money toward its upkeep, its value will increase. After all, you may want to sell your home, so you’ll need to ensure that it maintains or increases its value.
Luckily, there are some things you can do to up the value of your home, and most of them revolve around the addition of gadgets and features. So, which gadgets are the most likely
to add value to your home in 2023? Read on to find out!
Waste Disposal Unit
One of the cheaper ways that will be sure to up the value of your home is to look into having a garbage disposal installed. Attached under the sink in your kitchen, these devices break down food and other items that are put into them, meaning that waste disposal units are a great way to keep the waste in your kitchen down.
They also have to be professionally installed and provided they’re well maintained, they can significantly add to the value of your home.
Next is an air conditioner. Specifically, a wall-mounted air conditioner. In 2023, these devices are more sophisticated in their appearance and can blend seamlessly into all homes, irrespective of your interior design. They are also desirable, especially in hotter climates, and are ideal for keeping the air in your home at a high quality.
Much like the waste disposal unit, they have to be professionally installed so they work correctly, and they’ll also require routine maintenance and cleaning to ensure that the air you breathe is clean and pathogen free.
Of course, what better way to power your air conditioner than with solar panels?
When choosing a way to up the value of your home, green is the way to go, meaning solar panels are a great investment. You’ll need to ensure that they’re the correct size and can generate enough power for your home before you have them fitted, but once they’re installed, your electricity bills will drop, and your home’s value will go up.
In 2023, anything with the word “smart” in front of it is going to add value to your home.
One of the best options for any home that isn’t overly techy is a smart meter. These devices can control the temperature in your home remotely and often have apps that link to your phone, thereby allowing you to turn the heating on when you leave work, so by the time you get home, it’s nice and toasty. As you may have guessed, they are also an ideal way to save money on your heating bills, too!
Ever heard of a boiling tap? These are usually fitted in the kitchen by a plumber and eradicate the need for a kettle. Turn the faucet one way, you get water at a normal temperature. Turn it the other way, and the water is boiling. It’s convenient, it’s stylish, and it’s guaranteed to up the value of your home at the same time.
