Joseph Talbot, Real Estate Broker - HOME IMPROVEMENTS THAT IMPROVE VALUES

Not only are you likely to spend too much money and price your home out of the market, but you are likely to find that your height of fashion has become yesterday’s news a couple of years down the road. In short, could you keep it simple? If you are remodelling with an eye towards resale, less is often more. Simple projects like replacing exterior doors, fresh stain on the deck, and a fresh coat of paint are more likely to aid your home sale and result in a good ROI than larger projects like wholesale reconstructions and outbuilding additions. Make sure the basics are set. Take care of leaking pipes and buggy appliances, and make sure all the doors and windows open and close as expected as well as any missing or damaged flooring or broken windows. If you decide to go with a larger project, pick one that leads to a reasonable ROI, like a relatively modest kitchen remodel. Always be careful not to spend so much that you price yourself out of the market and make it harder to sell.
