Your home is most likely your biggest financial commitment and asset, and we all know that remodeling a home can increase its appeal to you, and potential buyers. But what’s the best way to improve the value of your home? There are some home improvements that might surprise you in terms of return on investment.

 

Kitchen Remodel

It is said that kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. If your kitchen is looking a little worse for wear or could use updating, a kitchen remodel is something you should consider. If you’re unsure which room to remodel, the kitchen is probably the first one to invest in. However, if you’re looking to sell, steer away from design ideas that are too personal to you. Remember to keep it neutral, design to appeal to the masses and ensure you don’t stray too far from the design of the rest of your home, unless you plan to make updates throughout.

Attic Insulation

Attic insulation is a great way to invest in your home whether or not you are looking to sell. It might not make your potential buyers fall in love, but most homeowners know the value of a well-insulated attic. It’s also something that goes beyond personal taste – we’ve never met a homeowner that claims attic insulation isn’t for them. If you’re not looking to sell, it’s still a great idea – you’ll save plenty on heating and cooling year round.

New Front Door

Your front door is the entryway to your home and one of the first things potential buyers will see. Upgrading your door is an inexpensive project that is said to bring one of the best returns on investment. You can also try repainting your front door for a more polished look, or painting it a bold new color, to attract attention to a for-sale home.

Finished Basement

Finishing your basement can add a whole new floor to your home! The extra square footage it provides and the potential buyers see in a finished basement can certainly help swing a sale. Help potential buyers to imagine all the things they could do with that additional space.

Interior Paint

Cheap and cheerful, painting the interior of your home is one way you can make a big impact without blowing your budget. Paint over out-of-fashion hues, and brighten your home with lighter, neutral tones.

There are plenty of ways to increase the value of your home and see the return on investment you’re looking for. Your home is the place you spend the most quality time in, so if you’re not looking to sell, consider the benefits of remodeling and home improvement in terms of quality of life, comfort and convenience as well as monetary ROI.
