What Is an Inexpensive Way to Add Lasting Value to My Home?

If you have lived in southern Nevada through the heat of just one summer, you probably heard that adding a swimming pool to your home does little to increase its value. Installing a decent pool costs upward of $25,000, and that’s if there is relatively easy access with no walls or trees impairing its location. We’ll hear horror stories about people hitting caliche clay while digging out the holes for their pools. They’ll tell you the only thing harder than caliche are diamonds. The related tales are as involved as NASA moon shots and just as expensive! And when the deed gets done and the pool is installed, people discover they never recover their investment.

While swimming pools are enjoyable, they are a zero-sum game. The pool installer makes money, and the new owner loses the amount paid. The gain on one side is equal to the loss on the other side.

Homeowners who install pools watch their appraised tax value go up, but their real estate comp value stays the same.

Wouldn’t you prefer to be in a win-win game where someone makes money installing something in your home and you make money because the installation actually increases your home’s value?

Sure you would, and that’s why Plantation Shutters from Best Buy Shutters make perfect sense!

Which Is Better, Plantation Shutters or Blinds?

The short answer is it depends on what you are looking to accomplish. Blinds get windows covered relatively inexpensively. While blinds merely cover windows, shutters encase them. Shutters are trendy and fashionable. Blinds are adequate for certain situations, but they have drawbacks. They are not as durable as shutters. I’m sure you’ve experienced bent or broken slats, torn pull-strings, malfunctioning pulleys, and mechanism failures. Some years ago, blinds took on a black eye with the publication of stories about freak accidents occurring. Young children became entangled in cords and unfortunately suffocated. Plantation Shutters avoid these pitfalls.

Besides Adding Value to Your Home, Plantation Shutters Save Money!

People who install Plantation Shutters are happy to report their utility bills go down.
