There are all sorts of improvements and updates you can do both indoors and outdoors that add value to your home. A new furnace, remodeled bathrooms, renovated kitchen, or refreshed landscaping can all increase your home's worth.

Some updates offer long-term value, like new kitchens and bathrooms wherein you recoup your spend when you sell your home. But some improvements to your home can bring immediate value. A needed new furnace, for example, can heat your home more efficiently and potentially reduce your monthly energy spend.

Smart home technology updates are another way you can add value to your home and reap immediate benefits.

The immediate benefit of security cameras for the value of your home

Installing indoor and outdoor home security cameras is one of the simplest ways to add immediate value to your home.
