We’ve come up with six home improvements that will perfect your space while simultaneously boosting the value of your home!
Bathroom & Kitchen Remodels
Everyone loves a beautiful kitchen & bathroom. This includes pretty well every home buyer you’ll run into. If a full remodel isn’t in the budget, simple improvements such as a new vanity and/or new tiling can give a fresh look, as well as a bump in property value.
Upgrading Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
This is a great opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint and your utility bills. Replacing/upgrading your insulation and going with more energy-efficient windows and doors will go a long way in these departments.
You’ll hear this method used quite frequently, but it’s because it works. It’s the best bang for your buck in terms of revitalizing your home. A neutral colour will even out your home and give the illusion of more space.
Overlooked Exterior Improvements
Similar to the philosophy behind a new coat of paint… Visually overhauling your front or backyard (ideally both) will give you great value for your money. Landscaping, new or revamped decks/porches, new eavesdrop and the like are all great areas to target.
Adding a Home Office
A growing portion of the workforce will be working from home for the foreseeable future. We know things will go back to normal, but we also know that working from home will be the new normal for certain industries. This refit is a subtle way of improving the appeal of your home to certain homebuyers. If you’re working from home yourself these days, this also makes your life easier and more productive!
Finished Basements & Additions
Finished basements or additions can significantly increase the square footage of your home. In the case of basements, they often add an extra 1/3rd of space to your home once they are finished. You can use the upgrade in space to add the room your home has been missing. Always look for the most reputable contractor you can find, even if it comes at a premium when considering these options. The hassle of trying to penny-pinch on such large projects are not worth a job half done.
