The Top Budget-Friendly Secrets to Increase The Value of Any Home, While Making The Home Safer
Increasing the value of your home has always been a key point for homeowners. Some of the major improvement many tend to do it to add a pool and remodel the kitchen or bathroom, but often tasks like these are extremely time-consuming and more importantly very, very expensive.
One aspect people tend to overlook is the importance of home safety and security. Of course, a safe neighborhood in which your home is located is very important in assessing the value, but ensuring the that your home itself is safe will add a lot of value and ease of mind for those in the market for a new home.
Having an intercom and access control system will ensure no one will come onto your property uninvited. Whether you are in the market for a simple audio system or a more advanced audio visual system, you are one step closer to a safe and more valuable home.
A system like this is like having a doorbell, but instead of opening the door blindly, which could lead to unforeseen circumstances, a system such as this will allow you to talk and even see whoever it is at the door or gate before you open that door.
Security cameras will not only help deter criminals from breaking and entering your property but if a criminal does get access to your home or vehicle, you will have the evidence in hand to rest easy that the culprit will be apprehended and charged. The benefits go way beyond the feeling of security and safety. Statistics show that many home buyers will take extra considerations to buying a home with security cameras, in turn, adding value to any home. The simple investment in such security measures will pay off long term and may even be the deciding factor for whether not to sign those closing contracts!
Many homes nowadays already have standard alarm systems, especially if the home was built after the mid-80’s. If your home does not have a full coverage alarm system, it may be time to take the next step in your own ease of mind, and increasing the overall value and perception of your home. Alarm systems may catch those spots that are not being covered by security cameras such as second story windows or side doors. Although you won’t have evidence in the form of video to turn over to authorities, in many cases good alarm systems will alert 911 and make noises sufficing to scare off burglars.
Alarm systems can be beneficial in much more ways than protecting your home against crime. For example, a variety of modern alarm systems will even detect smoke or carbon monoxide, keeping you safe from whatever may come your way, or the potential home buyers way.
