Listing your home for sale on the market can be an exciting and daunting experience. For many homeowners, their house and property is their largest investment, one that they hope brings them a healthy return upon sale. Upgrading your home through remodeling projects can add value to your property; however, it is vital to know which projects bring your investment’s largest return.
The National Association of Realtors has conducted numerous studies regarding how home improvement and remodeling affect a property’s value and make recommendations for what projects increase a property’s value. We have put together the top remodeling projects that improve the return on your investment when selling your home so that you can make sound decisions about where to invest your time and money.
Increase Interior Space
Homebuyers look for space in a dwelling. Adding square footage to your home can be as simple as finishing a basement or attic space to removing walls to achieve a spacious living area that creates an ideal flow to your rooms. By increasing the square footage of living space in a home, you are adding upwards of $15,000-$25,000 to your home’s value, depending on the type of remodeling completed.
If you are in a situation where adding square footage is not an option, consider how to remodel your home’s interior to make it feel more open and spacious and upgrading closets and storage areas to provide for better organization.
Many potential home sales are lost before buyers ever get out of their cars. Your property’s curb appeal is vital to its value. Realtors report that if their clients are not impressed upon arrival at a property, the chances are high that even if they tour the home, an offer will either not be made or below the asking price.
Besides keeping the landscaping fresh and in order, making exterior structural upgrades to your home can be a gamechanger. Not only can you make hardscape additions to your home through building decking, patios, or other outdoor spaces, but you may need to remove or remodel existing structures that have fallen into disrepair.
