You may be led to believe that the more upgrades you make, the higher the price you can list your home for sale. However, not all home upgrades are created equal; some will have you pouring money down the drain, others will immediately increase your resale value. So what home improvements should you do to get a fantastic return on your investment?

To take this into consideration we have to understand the changes that have happened in the past few years. Homes were put through a massive re-evaluation. In response to the pandemic, there are now certain features in a home that have become much more attractive to buyers. If you include them in your upgrades, you can increase the value of your home and turn it into a coveted property on the market. In particular there are three projects you may want to take on:

  1. Add more usable square footage. The need for more space was among the top reasons why people move. Projects such as creating a home office space or open floor plan can give that additional space buyers want.
  2. Improve your curb appeal. One of the best ways to improve curb appeal is by focusing on your landscaping. Make your home look more enticing by adding healthy plants and blooming flowers to your yard. To make even more of a statement, put a fresh coat of paint on your home’s exterior. Be sure your house numbers are visible.
  3. Upgrade your outdoor space. Functional outdoor spaces, such as a deck, fireplace or outdoor kitchen are now more valued due to the pandemic. Pressure wash and make repairs if necessary for a low-cost value increase.

Home improvements can be expensive, so you want to make sure you’re investing in the right projects. If you are not sure your renovation plans are worth pursuing feel free to call or email me. I’m happy to give you real estate advice and help you get the best value for your home.
