1. Renovated Kitchen and Bathrooms
Updating your kitchen and bathrooms is one of the more obvious projects you can undertake to improve your home’s resale value. And even if it’s just for yourself, it’s still worth every penny.
Savvy updates include: cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, backsplashes, flooring, appliances, countertops, and storage solutions.
Speaking of which…
2. Extra Storage Space
You can never have enough storage space!
Adding built-in shelves, extra cabinets, closets, or a kitchen pantry will make your home much more functional and easy to keep organized. This will appeal to potential buyers in a big way.
3. Landscaping and Hardscaping
When thinking about property value, don’t forget about the exterior of your house.
Add new flower beds, pavers, lights, and other features that will enhance your landscaping. You may even opt to build or expand a deck or patio to create more usable, low-maintenance space outdoors.
4. Finished Basement or Attic
Increase your property value by increasing the square footage of your finished space!
Turn your basement or attic into an extra living room, bedroom, gym, playroom, office—you name it.
5. Energy-Efficient Features
Energy-efficient appliances, HVAC systems, smart thermostats, and other features will add immense value to your property. Whether you’re interested in lowering your own utility bills or you’d like to attract eco-conscious buyers, investing in green technology is a winning move.
