When it comes to remodeling a home, the money that is spent cannot always be recouped, but most people want the investment they make in the remodeling project to pay off when it's time to sell. The smart choice for homeowners is to improve their home with features that meet the needs of their family, are current with today's living standard, and that increase their property value at the same time. Here are our recommendations for which remodeling improvements will bring the best bang for the buck:
1. A Kitchen Remodel
A kitchen remodel can really add value to your home. It's the heart of the home, so an open, airy, and updated kitchen will not only bring enjoyment to a family, but is also one of the first things that buyers look for. Improvements could include: Removing walls to create an "open concept", updating cabinetry and appliances, the addition of light, such as a window over the sink, and lighting and flooring replacement.
2. Updating or Adding Bathrooms
Bathrooms are an important part of a home families looking for a home. If there are not enough bathrooms or if they are very outdated, it will be a big turn off to potential buyers. Updating bathrooms can also really increase a home’s sale appeal. Improvements could include: Layout changes to maximize space, updating cabinetry and fixtures, and lighting and flooring replacement.
3. Increasing Light and Space
Dark, cramped rooms are no good when it comes to real estate. One thing that homeowners can do to increase the appeal of their property is open up the house to create more of a flow, improved sight lines and enhanced natural light. An open floor plan will make a home feel much larger and better for entertaining. Possible improvements could include: Removal of some walls to open and brighten the space, the addition of windows, vaulting the ceilings, the addition of skylights, repainting in light, airy colors, and lighting and flooring replacement.
4. Addition of Landscape and Curb Appeal
The curb appeal of a home is incredibly important when it comes time to sell. The first impression of a home that someone will have is from the look of the exterior. It's said that a good first impression of a home can add five percent to its value. Possible improvements could include: Exterior painting, renovation of the driveway and other hardscape, and the addition of improved landscape.
