Value-Booting Renovations for Your Home

Value-Booting Renovations for Your Home

Buying a home is likely one of the largest purchases you will make in your lifetime.  So why not maintain and grow that investment so if or when you decide to sell, you can reap maximum return?  Below are a few value-boosting ideas to get you started.

Change your color scheme.  Never overlook what a fresh coat of paint can do for a home, plus it’s one of the most cost-effective ways to give it a whole new look and feel before putting it on the market.  You can commit to doing the job yourself or splurge just a little bit more to hire a professional.

Update your landscaping.  Curb appeal is incredibly important in capturing potential buyers’ attention, so investing in your landscaping should be at the top of your list.  On top of regular fertilizing and weed control consider planting a variety of plants against the house or along your driveway, mixing heights and colors.  Add a focal point by creating a stone walkway or installing a fountains or trellis.

Give your kitchen a facelift.  To give your kitchen a more modern feel, you don’t always have to shell out the big bucks. Start by switching out your main light fixtures and sanding and repainting existing cabinets.  Add a unique eye-catching backsplash or, if you’re ready to spend a bit more, replace the countertops with granite or marble.

Increase energy efficiency.  Updating your home to save energy makes it more appealing to buyers in todays market.  Add extra insulation to your attic, use CFL light bulbs in all light fixtures, install a programmable thermostat, and find and seal cracks and leaks.
