Who wouldn't want their own private island? If $1.4MIL is within your budget, then you're going to love this private island just listed in New Bedford Harbor. The island comes with a bit of history as well, with records that date the structure to around 1920 two decades before radio station WNBH would use the site to house its transmitting tower and facilities. The 375-foot antenna would remain a fixture in the harbor until Hurricane Bob hit in 1991. Check out this unique listing and the history that goes with it here: http://realestate.boston.com/news/2019/03/13/private-island-new-bedford-harbor/

When building a new house, you will face a lot of decisions to make. The initial price of your home entails the cost of all the standard finishes and the cost of construction. If you are planning to customize your home, you should always consider the cost of an upgrade. Otherwise, it's challenging to manage your budget when faced with numerous options. The best way to surmount this difficulty is to prioritize correctly and only spend money on things that add value to your construction.

When considering the type of upgrade to invest in, think in terms of overall value which is functionality as well as return on investment. Here are the five best updates that add value to your home: 

The Kitchen 

Your kitchen is one of the essential points in a home. It is one of the rooms you visit every day, and you spend quality time. Also, when you decide to sell your house, the kitchen is one of those places a potential buyer will inspect to determine the quality of the house. You don't have to upgrade every single aspect of your kitchen at once. For a start, consider upgrading the Kitchen Island, taller cabinets, and LED strip cabinet lighting. 

Deeper Basement 

Upgrading your basement is a substantial investment if it is unfinished. An additional foot to the height of your basement can also make a remarkable difference. 

More Lighting 

When you plan on upgrading your lighting system, you are probably looking for ways to brighten up the house especially if it is builder grade construction. To make your money count, focus more on rooms where illumination is essential. Proper lighting can boost the quality of the house for potential buyers if a future need arises to sell.

Bigger Garage 

A garage can be expanded in length and width to give room for more vehicles. It also can be upgraded depth-wise to accommodate things like gardening supplies, bikes, and more. 

Energy savers 

There is an added benefit to energy-saving upgrades. If you are considering investing in energy savers, consider getting things like energy efficient appliances, energy efficient windows, cooling and space heating devices, etc. An energy-efficient home will save with lots of money on your utility bills. Your home will perform efficiently for you while staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Visit your local home hardware store for the best tools and brands to use when building or renovating your home.
