Whether you’re thinking about selling your home now or in the future, home renovations can boost the value of your property and help attract qualified potential home buyers. CWC Developments Ltd in Edmonton offers a full range of home building, construction and home renovation services. They share home renovations that have a good return on investment and that will greatly increase your home’s resale value.
It’s all about the kitchen! When a potential buyer checks out your home, either online or at a showing, the first room they’ll want to see is the kitchen. A clean, functional and updated kitchen will not only attract buyers, it will also raise your resale value. According to the Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report a minor kitchen renovation will recoup over 80 per cent of it’s original cost.
You can save money on your kitchen renovation, increasing your return on investment, by choosing to reface your cabinetry rather than replace it, refresh your countertops with quality laminate that mimics the look of natural stone and installing a mid-price sink and faucet. Repaint the trim, walls and replace your flooring with a durable, long lasting flooring material.
Windows and Doors
Replacing your front entry door with an energy efficient door and installing new vinyl windows will not only improve curb appeal, it will boost property value. Home buyers want to see that this expensive job has already been done before they move in and new windows and doors are very attractive.
Plus, these items have a very high return on investment. If you spend around $1400 on new entry doors, you can expect your home’s value to jump at least $1200. Combine that with the energy savings you’ll accumulate in the meantime and that door will go beyond paying for itself!
What your home looks like on the outside makes a big difference in regards to property value and competing on the real estate market. Any professional realtor will tell you that curb appeal is one of the most important factors to consider when putting your home up for sale. Plus, having a new exterior will make your home more welcoming to you while you’re enjoying living there.
Paint or replace your worn out siding and trim. Consider building a deck addition and if your fence is looking worse for wear, consider replacing it entirely. All of these things will increase your property value and personal enjoyment of your home as well.
Believe it or not, upgrading your attic insulation has the highest return on investment over all other home renovations. According to the Remodeling Magazine report, an attic insulation upgrade has a 107 per cent return on investment. That means you will actually make money on that upgrade.
You don’t have to worry about removing your old attic insulation. A professional remodeler can blow fiberlgass loosefill insulation overtop your old insulation and increase your home’s R-value substantially. You will see immediate energy savings on your monthly heating bills and will recoup the cost of the upgrade at resale.
