We are making our way through the countdown of the Top 20 Home Improvements to increase the value of your home. In Part 1 of this series I gave you #20 – #16. So….let’s look at the next Five!
#15 Landscape your Yard – Not always the best return on your investment but definitely the best for curb appeal to get buyers into your home and it may make for a quicker sale. Not to mention the enjoyment you will get out of a perennial garden in the mean time.
#14 Major Kitchen Remodel – Kitchens are the heart of the home and definitely the most important room in the house. They can make or break a sale. Major kitchen remodels are great only if you are not selling immediately. Do the major remodel, enjoy it, then it is ready for the sale down the road.
#13 Add a bathroom – If you have fewer faucets than beds, adding a bathroom can not only add value but save family arguments.
#12 Make sure Additions Match the House – If you have a traditional home, don’t add on a contemporary addition just because that is more your taste. If your addition doesn’t match, change the look of the house at the same time.
#11 Replace Old Windows – There is nothing worse than old drafty window. By replacing them you will save energy and dollars now and reap rewards at selling time.
