Renovating your home can be a great way to give it a makeover and gain extra space. It can also make it possible for you to stay in one place longer. The big question that everyone is asking is, “Will these improvements increase the selling price?” Yes, but only if you are strategic about which home improvements you are making.
To begin, kitchens are always a safe bet. People like to see modern convenience and style in this room. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at some real estate ads—you are sure to notice just how many of them mention updated kitchen features. Bathrooms are also a big win. When you modernize older styles or appliances, you will usually get a good return on your investment.
Don’t forget about outdoor improvements. Sprucing up the outside is a smart investment and can add value. Siding and landscaping, particularly in the front yard, increases your curb appeal. Roofs and windows may be somewhat expensive to replace, but buyers expect these things to be in good condition – so, while replacing them won’t dramatically increase resale value, not replacing them could significantly decrease it.
If you are smart about the improvements you make on your home, any of these renovations can add significant value. Call us to schedule a free, no-obligation appointment for an estimate on your home improvement project at 410-721-9577.
