Remodeling Projects That Increase Home Value

Posted on: February 16, 2018

Any time you’re looking to sell a home, remodeling is going to come up. As it should, seeing as when handled properly it’s one of the most efficient methods of improving home value. However, in order to get the most from your investments you’ll need to focus on what sells best, and what your home lacks.

Need some guidance in finding the ideal remodel projects to increase your home value? Follow along with Bath, Kitchen & Tile Center while we list our top remodel projects that focus on boosting home value.

The Objectives of a Value-Boosting Remodeling Project

Before you start planning, there are a few thongs to consider. In order to get the most out of your upgrades and renovation projects you must ensure that buyers will actually want what you’ve done. In many ways increasing home value is about appeal and attraction. For example a complete kitchen remodel can be an absolutely awesome way to add value to a home, and offers a high return on investment.  But the awe your new modernized kitchen might engender will be lost immediately if the potential buyer finds a crusty, out of date bathroom just moments later.

A perfect model project focuses on what your home needs most while also increasing the literal value of the property itself. Never forget that you have to sell your home, and that often means convincing the buyer that they want it right off the bat.

High Value Remodeling Projects

Assuming you have all of your home basics in order (a proper roof, heating and cooling, updated plumbing), then it’s time to focus on the fun stuff. So what are the top options for increasing value?

Bathroom Remodeling Projects

Bathroom areas are a constant favorite for homeowners to splurge on. And with their history of paying you back big time and the studies that show just how much they can impact a home’s appeal and value, it’s no wonder why. Updating fixtures, adding custom cabinets, and even something as simple as a new tub can go a long way.

Finished Attics & Basements

Even in larger homes, space is always at a premium and is always highly valuable. That’s why projects that add functional, attractive, and usable space are recommended so frequently by home design and realty experts. Finished attic and basement spaces give a buyer a chance to have free and ready to work with space for game rooms, reading rooms, offices, and any other thing that may hold their interest.

Adding a Home Office

We would recommend that complete home additions sit low on your priority list if you’re looking to boost value quickly. However for homeowners planning to sat where they are for the next five, 10 years, adding a home office can pay you back tons in the long run. For the time being you get an excellent place to get some work done, and in the future you can pass on that benefit to buyers—they’ll appreciate it, guaranteed.

Upgrading Home Staples

Kitchens, bathrooms, and game rooms are all certainly the most bombastic and game-changing options out there. But when you’re talking pure ROI, literally nothing beats upgrading basics. The value that new home siding, updated electrical and lighting, and simple countertops can add to a space is not to be ignored. If you’re looking for faster, low-budget ways to increase value we strongly recommend you start with these.
