Here are four parts of your house you should consider renovating.

So you’ve decided to renovate your home, but which renovations will truly improve its value? Today I want to go over some examples that will give you a good return on your investment:

1. The kitchen. The first place every buyer looks at is the kitchen. It’s where people spend most of their time, so it’s the most important room in the house. Think about the quality of the cabinets and whether or not you can add more storage. If you have melamine counters, replace them with stone. Also, consider adding a backsplash and some recessed lighting.

2. The bathroom. Do you have old wallpaper? Can you change the bathtub or shower? Sometimes simply changing the faucets and accessories can make the bathroom more marketable. If you have dead space in your house, you should consider adding another bathroom.

“When doing renovations, you have to think about whether you’ll benefit from them or not.”

3. The flooring. Changing the flooring is a very simple way to improve the value of your home. If you have carpet, change that out for hardwood because today’s buyers love hardwood floors. If you have hardwood floors already, you might want to refinish them.

4. Repainting the home. You’d be surprised what a fresh coat of paint can do to the value of your home.

You might think I recommend these renovations all the time, but I tell my clients that they shouldn’t do any renovations until the home is on the market. When doing renovations, you have to think about whether you’ll benefit from them or not. 

If you ever have any questions about whether you should do a renovation, don’t hesitate to call, email, or text me. I’d love to help you.
