If you are prepared to hire a Vancouver, WA custom home builder then may we make a suggestion—think further into the future to when you will want to sale your dream home.

We know that this is almost a contradiction—building the home you want to live in for a long time and planning on strategies to sale the home. But eventually you will want to sell for everything you have into this home. You should be aware that the same things that appeal to future buyers will be very appealing to you now and will be impressive to those who come to see your new home.

At Direct Finish Construction, a Vancouver, WA custom home builder and general contractor, we love to help with the details that make a home livable now and in the future.

Designing a new home requires a key eye for detail and there are many subtle things you can do to enhance the overall appearance during the building stage.

Trees can improve the curb appeal of your property.

Trees can improve the curb appeal of your property.

For example, the landscaping can increase the value of a home by thousands of dollars. Trees are just one example. A paper published in Landscape and Urban Planning, Geoffrey Donovan of the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station found that trees can add close to $9,000 to the price of a home.  What’s more, homes within 100 feet of a home with street trees sell for more than homes in areas with no trees”.

Outdoor seating areas such as front porches and patios also increase the value of a home.

Adding small enhancements to your custom home, built by a qualified custom home builder will definitely raise the curb appeals as well as the overall satisfaction of living in your new home.

Call Direct Finish Construction for other ideas that will improve your home. Call (360) 690-5616 or click here to read more about what Direct Finish Construction has to offer.
