Does A Home Theatre Equal Home Value?

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Improvements made to your home almost always increase the value of your home, and a new home theatre is no different. Home theatre installation doesn’t only increase the value of your home when looking to sell; it also increases the value of your home while you’re still living in it. A home theatre makes your house more comfortable by providing a space solely for relaxation.

Home-Theatre-Home-Value Installing a home theatre is not only an investment in your future; it is an investment for you that gives you an immediate return. Aside from the obvious benefit of making your house feel more like a home, a home theatre also equals increased home value. Why?

1. Home theatres are becoming the norm. With many new-construction homes, there’s often an option to add a home theatre as a feature. Because they’re becoming more common, homeowners are looking for and expecting a home theatre more and more. A home theatre will either put you ahead of the competition or bring you up to par – either way there’s a notable and positive change in your home’s value.

2. Out with the old, in with the new. Physical books are becoming increasingly irrelevant with the popularity of the Kindle and other tablet devices. Libraries used to be the go-to when deciding what to do with an extra room, but now more buyers are looking for a way to watch their endless collection of movies and television shows thanks to services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.

 3. High-end finishes lead to a higher ticket price. Finished basements are so common now that in order to set apart your home from the competition, high-end finishes in areas like the basement make your house stand out when you’re ready to sell and thus increases the value.

A better design and more advanced components to your home theatre can also increase the value of your home. Talking to a professional about your home theatre installation can increase your home value substantially. It doesn’t have to cost a lot and you also don’t need a lot of space for a home theatre. A quality home theatre can considerably increase your home value as well as making your home more comfortable.
