If you’ve been living in Greeley, Loveland, Windsor, or anywhere else in Northern Colorado for a while, then you’ve made a smart move — the housing market here is hot. It’s no secret that the quality of living in Colorado’s Front Range is nothing shy of excellent, and we firmly believe that Northern Colorado offers some of the very best living the Centennial State has to offer.

In today’s blog post, our Northern Colorado renovation contractors offer four simple ways to enhance your home’s value.
4 Easy Ways To Increase Your Home’s Value
Curb Appeal Is King
When it comes to boosting the value of a house, most people default to curb appeal — and for many good reasons! This is your home’s first chance to make an impression on potential buyers, realtors, and your HOA.
Make sure your landscaping is well-maintained (or overhauled if necessary), and consider repainting your front door if it’s faded from sun damage. Planting additional flowers or even getting a new mailbox are also affordable but effective ways to enhance curb appeal.
Realtors like to use an energy-efficient home as a major selling point, and prospective home buyers like the idea of knowing that their utility costs will be minimized. Things like double-paned windows, LED lighting, and modern, updated appliances are all worthwhile investments for your home.
Side-tip: go room-to-room and take a close look at what needs to be done to improve it (or what could be done to make it better). This tip obviously extends beyond making energy-efficient improvements, but by compartmentalizing your home upgrades, you’ll be able to focus on the details that will add up to really make a positive impact on your home’s resale value.
Finish Your Basement
If your home is like many Colorado homes, your basement takes up nearly a third of the square footage of your home. Are you putting it to good use? If not, make sure that the new occupants will by getting it finished before you sell it.
Our basement remodeling services are here to help you profit off of what you’ll be able to sell your home for after getting your basement overhauled. In our biased opinion, basements are so much more than storage areas or impromptu storm shelters. Black Rhino Custom can help you create the ultimate man cave, gaming room, home theater, or even a few bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate more people in your home.
Warning: you might love your new and improved basement so much that you may pull your house off of the market and stick around!
Take Care Of What Needs To Be Done Maintenance-Wise
Think of selling your home as similar to selling your car: you wouldn’t sell a vehicle that’s in dire need of repairs, would you? The money you put into those repairs will be greatly outweighed by what you’ll be able to get from the sale. If your home is older, consider the condition of things like your water heater, furnace/HVAC system, roof, windows, and so forth. These things might work just fine right now, but what about 5-10 years down the road?
Realtors will reward you for taking the time and money to maintain your home prior to selling it. Another side-tip: a certified home inspector is a great way to get an additional pair of eyes on the inside and outside of your home. They’ll help you identify what could or needs to be done before your home enters the market in order to get top dollar for it, and they’ll also help you determine whether it’s worth fixing or replacing things such as your HVAC system or roofing components.
