How to Sell Your Home for More by Renovating It

Whether your home has been on the market for a while, or you just want to get a better price, you might be thinking about renovating.

Before you go wild making plans, though, you should know where to focus your efforts. To get the most bang for your buck, make renovations that will attract buyers, but not cost more than you can get back with the sale price.

The first thing you want to renovate might be your home’s facade — your home’s first impression. If it were a book, it would be the cover! After all, if your home doesn’t have curb appeal, it won’t be very attractive to prospective buyers. Seek out contractors, designers and landscapers experienced with these renovations. They’ll aim to get you the most for your money.

Next, look to the kitchen and bathrooms. These are some of the most important parts of the home for many buyers. A disorganized kitchen with too little counter space can turn a buyer away, as can a tired, outdated bathroom.

Both of these spaces can be costly to renovate fully, however, so you may want to consider small updates with big impact to the overall look and feel. A fresh coat of paint on the walls, brand new faucets, modern lighting fixtures — are just a few ideas that won’t break the bank, but will revive these spaces.

Whatever you decide when it comes to renovating in order to sell your home for more, consider value-added home improvements before you begin, and plan accordingly so that your budget doesn’t get away from you.
