(Family Features)—Improving your home can grow the value of your investment—if the right upgrades are made. No matter which kind of home you own, these home improvements top the list.
1. Power Backup
– Natural disasters are on the rise, and expected to become more impactful in the future. Installing a standby generator system is one upgrade that will pay dividends in peace of mind. Look for a system that has automatic “power management” technology—this will power all of your home’s appliances efficiently and safely.
2. Smart Home Automation
– The smart home is here to stay, and more and more homebuyers are looking for properties outfitted with the latest in home automation. Whether it’s an app that flicks on the lights or a thermostat that self-adjusts, integrating this technology can save you from inconvenience, more money and more time.
– You can’t put a price on safety. From keypad and silent alarms to cameras and motion detectors, a home security system is well worth the expense. Consult a home security expert in your area to determine which system will be most beneficial for your home.
These three upgrades are ideal for any homeowner. Keep these in mind the next time you invest in improving your home—they will be well worth it!
