What Updates and Upgrades Give You the Best Return on Investment?
The one buyers will give the most preceived value to.
Usually, this means the neutralization of colors and improvements that appeal to the masses. The following is a good starting point for where to spend your funds on improvements. As always, we welcome the opportunity to visit your home and provide you with our opinion!
*Kitchen and baths sell homes. If you are going to spend any money anywhere, this is where we recommend you start. Old oak cabinets? Have them painted white. Dated hardware? Install new, stainless steel pulls. Laminate counter tops? Select a nice, coordinating granite. Small 6x6 tile in the bathrooms? Upgrade a 12X12 or larger in a color that is on trend or will stand the test of time.
*Neutral paint. The early 2000's brought on a sea of beige and warm tones and, while that doesn't seem long ago, trends have gone more towards greige - the color that takes on beige or gray undertones depending what is paired with it. Fresh, new paint is imperative especially when you are up against new construction. When in doubt, a clean white will always do the trick in neutralizing.
*Additions. If your home is on the small size compared to the rest of the neighborhood, adding square footage usually brings on a nice return on investment. However, not all additions are equal so we recommend you consult us before tackling a new project.
