Increase Your Home’s Value Today
Is digging up the backyard to put in a pool worth it? Or maybe you should update those old looking kitchen countertops, learn how to increase your home’s value.
Do #1: Upgrade Your Kitchen
Experts have stated that a kitchen renovation should be at the top of your list when attempting to increase the value of your home. The kitchen is essentially “the heart” of your home and where a lot of families spend most of their time; therefore, the kitchen should be a top priority. The big question is where does one begin?
Simply upgrading your appliances to stainless steel and installing granite countertops adds more value to your home. The simpler, the better. Simple details make a huge difference. Installing shiny knobs on cabinets and adding a sparkling new faucet are great additions. A big renovation to the kitchen can be tearing down the full or half wall to connect the kitchen to the den or living room area(s). That way, your kitchen appears more spacious and open.
Do #2: Revamp Your Bathroom
An old, cracked, dirty or broken down toilet is a huge turn off to a potential buyer. Installing a glamourous vanity, proper lighting, and long windows are great value boosters! Other simple fixers include inputting a tub and/or adding a ‘his’ and ‘her’ wash bowls. To learn more about remodeling your bathroom, visit our previous blog here.
