A Property Appraisal Is Required By Lenders

Your bank or lender will want to protect their investment by seeing the financial facts. Property DNA Group is happy to offer a variety of property and commercial property appraisals. Renovations can benefit any location. Upgrades to your property including a new roof, efficient windows, energy-wise appliances, trim, new cabinets and overhauls to the kitchen or bathroom are among the most popular renovations. Exterior decks, access ramps, new front doors, skylights, gutters, etc. are all extremely valuable components for a potential buyer. Adding functionality, safety, security features and aesthetics can help bring in potential clients. It is exciting to see your hard work pay off! We are always thrilled to meet you on-site and offer our expertise.

Consistent Upgrades Add the Most  Property Value

While creating an over-the-top kitchen may be a dream come true, if you are renovating for resale beware. Having one stellar room in the home and the rest of the home showcasing dingy flooring or inefficiency can be detrimental to your plan. Similarly, sinking the majority of your renovation budget into a backyard pool or extensive landscaping may backfire with potential buyers. Offering consistency and efficiency throughout the property is ideal.  Note that often new roofs and furnaces and larger-scale foundation items are often replaced due to an emergency or from old age. Making your money back on major foundational renovations is not always reflected in the purchase price as many buyers assume these features to be in decent working order. A new HVAC system behind the walls is not as desirable and immediately noticeable as an updated kitchen.
