If you are, the following 3 tips to increase home value are usually cited by home improvement experts as the ones which will give you most return on your investment.
1. Remodel Your Kitchen
Considered by many to be the heart of the home, the kitchen is a great place to start if you want to add value to your property. Careful updating of this room will always reap rewards, as it’s estimated that you can recoup anything from 60-120% of your costs, as long as you don’t invest too much money into your new kitchen. One important point to bear in mind is that you shouldn’t make your new kitchen too grand for the rest of the house.
Keep it simple and classy and include new up-to-date appliances, rather than going all out to impress with something that looks out of place. Try to keep your spend to a minimum when you remodel your kitchen, but don’t compromise on quality or expert fitting.
2. Remodel Your Flooring
If your carpets, tiles and laminates have seen better days, you might want to consider remodeling your flooring. Wooden floors are extremely popular with buyers, but if you can’t afford real wood, quality laminate flooring is a good option. Remove any old marked and stained vinyl and replace it with either tiles or some of the new quality vinyl or cushion flooring.
Nothing perks up a house quicker than clean, hygienic flooring.
3. Replace Carpet (with new carpet)
And speaking of flooring, old, dirty and stained carpets can put off prospective buyers, and even if they do agree to buy your property, they may try to negotiate a discount to offset the cost of replacing the carpets. One way to increase the value of your home, and attract more buyers, is to replace any tired-looking, dirty or worn carpets with new carpet.
Buy the best quality you can afford, but keep it neutral.
and when in doubt…
