No matter what the season, you should always consider your home’s value — no matter if we plan to sell five weeks or five years from now. It’s just good business sense to make good investment that will not only increase your enjoyment of the home but create value for he next buyer. To increase your home value, it’s essential to make smart investments in stylish, timeless home upgrades. One easy, big-impact project? Replace your surfaces with Granite or Quartz Countertops.
Renovations can add significant value to a home. Small upgrades like granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and updated bathrooms make a home more appealing to buyers and stand out in the real estate market. Large-scale remodeling can seriously increase the home’s value. Not all upgrades add value to a home, however.
According to “Home Remodeling” magazine, a renovated kitchen can add 80 to 100 percent of its cost to the value of the home. That means a kitchen renovation costing $20,000 will add $16,000 to $20,000 to a home’s value. A home that was appraised at $200,000 could now be worth $220,000.
Kitchen renovations include things like new countertops, wiring, lights, custom cabinets and state-of-the-line appliances.
According to “Home Remodeling” magazine, bathrooms are another opportunity to increase home value. Bathroom renovations add 80 to 115 percent of their costs to the home’s value. On a $200,000 home, $10,000 in bathroom improvements could increase the home’s value to $210,000 or more.
When upgrading a bathroom, a homeowner can replace fixtures and fittings, retile the floor and put in a large soaking tub. Adding a second bathroom to a home is a good bet, with a 100 percent or more resell value. Most importantly replacing the old vanity tops with granite or quartz vanity tops would be easiest way to add big value in a bathroom.
According to HGTV.com, bathroom improvements don’t have to be costly to add value to a home. Things as simple as replacing a dated vanity tops, sinks or tile do wonders. Freshening the room with new linens and lighting fixtures also adds instant appeal.
