Make Sure to Pick the Right Projects

When you decide to remodel, make sure to pick your projects correctly. Don’t waste money on things buyers aren’t interested in.

To get the most bang for your buck, look to things that will boost curb appeal and enhance the buyers’ living experience, like an updated kitchen or bath.

Kitchens

The biggest return on investment comes from an updated, remodeled kitchen. When you plan your kitchen remodel, look to update your plumbing fixtures, appliances, cabinets and countertops. Make sure to prioritize, as updating all of these items can be pricey.

Updating with some affordable cosmetic materials is a great way to make sure the remodel is manageable. Moving plumbing fixtures and appliances can really cost you, and might not pay off in the extra money you make on the home.

Additional Living Space

When you add a bit of living space, you make an excellent investment as more square footage always equals an increase in the home’s value.

There will be costs associated with an addition, no matter the size. Make sure you are adding area that will be used wisely. For example, don’t just add a room for no reason. Extend the master bedroom, increase the size of a bathroom; choose to make additions where a buyer would want them.

Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is important. While a buyer shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, the cover is the first thing to attract them to your home. This is your home’s first impression on any buyer.

You can simply clean up the yard by getting rid of overgrown brush, add some plantings, and even paint your front door to add a bit of ‘Wow’. These things are inexpensive and will really help improve your home’s look.
