4 value-adding home renovations


If you’re planning to sell your home, consider fixing it up and adding a few upgrades. Doing so can increase its value and make it easier to sell.

Check out 4 of the best home renovations that will ensure good returns on your investment:

  1. Improve the bathroom

    Next to the kitchen, buyers are most interested in checking out the bathrooms of a home. Make sure that everything works and there are no drips in sight. Upgrade sinks, tubs, toilets, and the bathroom color scheme. The goal is to make the bathroom look fresh and inviting, or a sanctuary to escape to at the end of the day.

    Consider adding an extra bathroom in the house, which could be vital in making a sale.

  2. Kitchen renovations

    A good-looking kitchen adds a “wow factor” to your home. Many agree that this is one of the busiest places in the house, so renovate it before putting it up for sale.

    Consider updating your kitchen cabinets and stone countertops. Replace old appliances with newer and energy-efficient models. You may also upgrade the sink and faucet and change old flooring with stained concrete or terrazzo tiles, or the newer laminates.

  3. Repainting

    A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in changing your home’s look and boosting its value.

    Make sure to pick colors that will attract the most buyers. Neutral, classic tones like beige or gray have more appeal than brighter, more audacious colors like red or lime green. These are also much easier to complement with contrasting colors on furniture and other fixtures for a more lively color scheme.

  4. Improved landscaping

    A well-kept lawn with healthy trees and blooming flowers can immediately make a house look more inviting. It can also give a good first impression to scouting home buyers.

    Some of the simple but effective things you can do include taking out the weeds, watering the plants and trees, and mowing the lawn.
