Making improvements in a home can enable a faster sale of the property substantially beyond the cost of the renovation, and even mean the difference in whether or not the house sells at all. When contemplating an upgrade, a homeowner is wise to consider renovations which are not only needed, but will enhance the value – and selling appearance – of the home the most.
Renovations accomplish one of two things: they improve or upgrade the condition of the home, or they actually add features to it (a small renovation might be a skylight; a large one might be an extra bedroom or bathroom).
Before embarking on any ambitious project, sellers should first confirm that their money wouldn’t be better spent with more basic work.
Assuming the house is otherwise appealing modernising the kitchen is usually a worthwhile investment. Not only is it the “heart” of the
home, the kitchen is also the main workplace, where modern convenience is expected.
For older kitchens, replacement of counter-tops, floors, cabinet doors or appliances can freshen the look and improve the utility of the kitchen,
without disturbing the character of the room – and with less expense than a complete rebuild.
Another good candidate for refurbishment is your bathrooms. Buyers are fussy about cleanliness, and a sparkling clean, looking like new bathroom is an excellent sales feature. Bathroom renovations are not as expensive as you might think, even for a complete remodelling.
So, Home Improvements – what are they worth?
Most home improvements don’t return 100% of their value.
But remodelling the kitchen or bathroom is usually a good bet.
