These are the top home improvements to add value to your property and why they work!

Mini Kitchen Remodel

If you ask your realtor ‘what is my home worth?’ and hear back far less than you want: it’s time to go for a kitchen remodel.  Although you may be tempted to do a full overhaul, it’s a better idea to go small and make specific choices about which parts of your kitchen to update.  Smaller changes allow a larger return on investment and ensure you don’t have to lose money or time in the long run!

Beyond this, good siding can also add to how energy efficient a property is, can keep out insect life: and can leave a property feeling far newer and fresher.

Out-of-date windows are a ticking time bomb for your HVAC system.  If your windows are old and leaking, they’ll quickly start to cause problems you don’t want to fix.  This can range from the larger issues like cracks and moisture leaks during storms to air leakage, making your HVAC run in overdrive.  Updating your windows can add a lot of value to any buyer.

You Can Add Value in No Time

Whether you’re updating the entire home because it’s out of date, or you’re just changing a few key items: it’s vital that you take the time to create a property where people will want to live and spend their time.  Follow some of these tips, and you’ll start a bidding war in no time.
