We’ve decided to buy a new construction home, what should we spend our upgrades on?


We’ve decided to buy a new construction home. Now we need to decide what upgrades will be the best value for us? Upgrades tend to be money makers for builders. They are not made to give the home any extra value, but to make you love the home more than you already do! When deciding on upgrades, you need to decide what your long term goal for the home is.

If you are looking at the home as an investment, then don’t spend much on upgrades. Pick small to medium upgrades and stay pretty standard with the customization. Pick items that the general population would enjoy – a gold column in the living room may not be appealing to the new buyer or renter.

If you are looking at the home as a forever home for your family, then go for the upgrades. Customize the home for quality for living. Make it something that you will enjoy for years to come!
