Adding Value

Which improvements will add value to your home and help with resale value when the time comes to sell?

Only the ones that future buyers will also want and be willing to pay for.

As a general rule, choosing the functional over the merely cosmetic and choosing neutral over unusual or exotic will pay at resale. Taste and current trends can also affect the value of an update. Unusual colors have a limited appeal.

Which updates will add the most value to your home?

  • Update kitchen and/or bathrooms. Updating the kitchen or bathrooms will yield a high return on investment. Stay timeless with the updates, but pay attention to trends. 
  • Increase usable space. Add an extra bathroom, upgrade or expand the kitchen and/or master bedroom suite, add more closet space, or convert an unused space to a more functional space, like a spare bedroom to a home office or basement into the ultimate hangout space.
  • Lighten and brighten your rooms. Paint rooms white or with a light color paint to neutralize your space. Add skylights, windows, or French doors.
  • Revamp the exterior. Updated landscaping will draw in buyers before they even walk through the door. Keep your shrubs, trees, and grass trimmed and tidy. Add a splash of color with vibrant plants or by painting the front door an eye-catching color. Consider a focal point like a flagstone walkway or a water feature.
