The single best thing you can do to help direct your home renovation project toward improving its sale value is to contact a real estate agent. This is especially true if you plan to sell in the next few years. Remember, home prices fluctuate, so have the agent come now and again just before you sell because market values may have changed in the interim. An agent will know your specific market and what sort of improvements, colours, and styles are most sought-after in your area. A real estate agent can also suggest simple fixes with low costs, as well as contractors who can perform the work. Another simple rule to follow is to make sure you obtain the permits your municipality requires. Trying to skirt the permit system may seem like a good idea in the short term, but it can lead to far more anxiety and expense in the long run. One benefit is when you sell, and the buyer asks if you got a permit, you can show them you did. You want to avoid the hassle and expense of needing to get a permit after the work was done, in order to close the deal. With all this in mind, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of home remodelling, beginning with a more detailed look at where you should spend your money and how much you can expect to gain from your investment.
