Should You Make Invisible Improvements to Your Property?

When we discuss home improvements, we often look at upgrades that enhance curb appeal or other visual aspects of the home for potential buyers to fall in love with. But there are other ways to add value to your home that might not readily be seen, if at all. We call these “invisible home improvements,” and they can be a big hit with potential buyers.

Here are four invisible improvements real estate investors should consider for their properties.

1. Land grading

According to HomeLight, more than 75% of real estate agents say landscaping can command 1% to 10% more than homes without a well-manicured lawn. But land grading goes far beyond simple curb appeal. When a yard is graded correctly, it draws water away from the foundation of the home. This is vital in hurricane-prone regions and a must for those in flood zones.

The Property Brothers Show Off Their Grandest Kitchen Upgrades

“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are at it again! On this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” they’re competing to see who can renovate the better home in Los Angeles. And in the latest episode, they’re facing off over (arguably) the most important part of the house: the kitchen.

In the episode “A Tale of Two Kitchens,” a lot is on the line. Drew hasn’t won a single kitchen challenge in all six seasons of “Brother vs. Brother,” so he’s determined to get lucky with No. 7.

However, his plans may be dashed since Jonathan has plans for some show-stopping features, including a custom barrel ceiling and double kitchen islands.

It’s up to judges Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery from the HGTV show “Frozen in Time” to decide which brother’s kitchen and dining space is better—and they have a tough decision to make.
