Get the biggest bang for your buck with these 5 Home Improvements

Kitchen Renovation

You know this—the kitchen is the new living room. That makes it the central feature of your home. Bringing your kitchen up to speed with current color trends for cabinets, updated hardware, and stainless steel appliances will not only increase your home’s value, it will also help it sell much faster down the road.

New flooring

Hot trends like 5-inch hardwoods or site-finished hardwoods add a serious pop to your home’s main level. Pairing this with new carpet will not only give you and your loved ones a beautiful space to enjoy, but will give you a competitive edge and a higher sales price when the time comes to move.

Bathroom Updates

The long and short of it is this—bathroom updates go a long way with potential buyers because they tend to assume the work is more expensive than it actually is. So go ahead and update your bathrooms with matching faucets, lighting, and hardware. Frame the mirrors, and choose a beautiful countertop and tile design. Together, these updates create a “wow” moment for you, your guests, and future potential buyers. 

Neutralizing Paint

Dark colors, yellows, mustard, or burgundy walls scream outdated. Choosing to neutralize paint colors now not only keeps your home looking like new, it saves you from the inconvenience of having to do so when you decide to sell. Paint is very inexpensive for those who prefer DIY, or hiring professional painters to do the job shouldn’t break the bank either.

Exterior Landscaping and Paint

Maintaining your home’s curb appeal to the highest standard will almost always get you a dollar-for-dollar return on your investment. Goals for a healthy lawn include lush, green grass and properly placed bushes and trees. Freshening up exterior paint every 2-3 years not only protects the durability of your home, it makes a good first impression.
