Skyrocket your Home Value - 3 Home Improvements That Can

You have many options when it comes to projects that will increase the value of your home, such as sprucing up the landscaping or giving the exterior a fresh coat of paint.

But there are a few specific areas that can truly skyrocket your home value.

Kitchen

The kitchen is appropriately called the “heart of the home”, and as the focal point of most homes it needs to shine.  If your kitchen needs a complete remodel, you might consider starting here. You'll recoup the expense as long as you stick to a reasonable budget and make the right choices for finishes. But if that is not for you, even minor renovations can make a big impact on the overall value. You could give the cabinets a fresh coat of paint and update the appliances. This will give the kitchen a fresh new look and will demand a better price when you're ready to sell. You might also consider updating the countertops and adding some high-end fixtures.

Master Retreat

Another area that can greatly increase the value of your home is the master bathroom and closet.  An otherwise great house might be overlooked if the master bathroom is outdated or the closet is cluttered and disorganized.  It'll be well worth the time and effort to update this area.

Bathrooms can be completely renovated for less than you would imagine.  So get a few estimates, it's probably more affordable than you thought and it will greatly increase the appeal and value of your home.

Lighting

Take a look around your home, is it dark?  Lighting can and will make even the smallest home seem open and inviting. You'll want to maximize the perception of space by bringing in as much natural light as possible. Ditch the heavy drapes for a light curtain to let in the natural light.

How old are the lighting fixtures? If the lighting fixtures are outdated, investing just a little can translate into a quicker sale.  These changes will make a huge impact on the overall look and value of your home.

When you're ready to sell, give us a call.

We can help you decide which updates will put the most money in your pocket and get you on the road to your new home as quickly as possible.
