What's My Home Improvement R.O.I.??

5 Home Improvements Which Actually Impact Sales

Are you looking to update your home before a potential sale?
Not all renovations pay for themselves at the closing table.

If you’re in the process of selling your home, or just thinking about it; one of the first considerations is usually – should you do any home improvements before listing. 

Is that kitchen countertop outdated? Should you buy new carpet? What improvements should you make to ensure you get the best possible sales price when you list?

Guessing about the improvements, renovations or upgrades that make the biggest impact in sales price is really just a gamble. Design trends change so quickly that what is popular today could be dated tomorrow. Fortunately there are some timeless changes you can make to help present your home in the best possible light.

5 Improvements which provide the best return-on-investment

  1. Green Energy - The "Green" movement is here to stay. Consider upgrading to energy efficient appliances and systems. Gardens which are water-friendly and low maintenance are also great investments.
  2. Painting - Fresh paint, inside and/or out, is also a great way to spruce up the home. Designer magazines are filled with new palates and while a soft green might not appeal to every buyer, if it compliments your d├ęcor, it will show off the home in a modern light.
  3. Spa Bathrooms - 2018 was considered the "Year of the Spa" in designer circles. Soft lighting, fresh colors, and a clean and welcoming bathroom are definitely a plus for today's home buyer.
  4. Outdoor Living - While building an outdoor kitchen might not be in your budget, section an area of the yard where family and friends can gather for a meal or relax by the pool. Showcase Florida's warm indoor/outdoor lifestyle!
  5. Bonus Rooms - If you have a spare bedroom or loft, consider converting the space into a media room. From home theaters to simple gaming/family spaces, bonus rooms are more popular than ever.

Selling your home is a big decision! Before you spend extra time, money, and energy on home improvements, make sure the home is clean, maintained, and decluttered. Then if you want to take it to the next level, consider a few updating projects to take it there!


Have you thought about any of these renovations? From
small and simple, to large-scale, you'll see some of your
best R.O.I. if you make any of these updates!
