The two most important renovations you can make to increase the resale value of your home are the kitchen and the master bathroom. These are most often the two spaces of a home that welcome buyer scrutiny. Unfortunately, these can be expensive tasks. So while you’ll want to focus on making renovating these two rooms first, there are other minor home improvements you can make to increase the value of your home. Read below on other effective and profitable home renovations.
Replace your front door
The front door is the first impression a buyer makes when entering your home. You want it to be in the best possible condition, so consider replacing it or adding a fresh coat of paint.
Replacing the windows in your home for energy-efficient, single-pane windows can greatly increase the resale value of your home. Not only can this help a buyer save up to $500 a year on energy costs, but they will also qualify for a green-energy tax credit.
Replace your garage doors
Today, garage door design and materials are seemingly endless, which means you can find a door that is affordable and energy efficient, all while adding curb appeal to your exterior.
Consider a new roof
If your home needs a roof replacement, this can be a risky venture for a buyer. They want to know that the roof of the home they are buying is reliable and not going to cost them in the long run. Consider replacing your roof if it could use the maintenance, because in the grand scheme of things, a buyer is probably more willing to live with an outdated bathroom than a roof that needs replaced shortly after purchasing the home.
New lighting fixtures
We have written in previous blog posts about the importance of lighting in a for-sale home. Be sure to have all updated bulbs and lighting fixtures throughout the home to create a bright atmosphere. Consider installing under-cabinet lighting or adding more fixtures to a room.
