Home Renovation 101

Do you see yourself possibly selling your home in the future? Do you wonder, “what are the most important things I can renovate in terms of adding value to my home for resale?” or “What are some of the worst things people renovate, thinking they will bring added home value”? We’ve got the answers. These simple upgrades can easily add thousands of dollars to your home’s value.

#1 Kitchen

It’s considered the heart of the home. Potential home buyers focus on this area as they first view a home for sale, so make sure your kitchen looks clean and reasonably updated.

#2 Bathroom

Next to the kitchen, bathrooms are often the most important rooms to update. Simple things like a new toilet seat and an updated sink are pretty easy for homeowners to install, and they make a big difference to the look of the bathroom.

#3 Floors

If you have carpets, be sure to keep them clean. A professional carpet cleaner is an inexpensive investment, especially if your rugs are in good shape and are neutral colors.

#4 Curb Appeal

What buyers see when they first drive by your home is very important. A nicely mowed lawn, a few nicely kept shrubs and a swept walkway makes a great first impression. You may want to consider hiring a landscaper for a professional touch.

Doing a few or all of the upgrades can add on thousands of dollars to your home’s resale value for a relatively cheap cost. Just like a job interview or a first date, you want to make sure potential buyers fall in love with your house.
