If you are hoping to sell your home in the next few years, you may be considering doing a bit of work to the house to add value to it. However, not all improvements are worth your time and money. If you are going to invest in the home, you probably want to get your money back upon selling it.
Here are three upgrades that will add value to your home.
You have heard that a kitchen is the heart of a home, and having a workable, stylish kitchen can tip the balance in your favor when buyers are considering several homes. Older homes especially can benefit from nicer appliances, new cabinets and upgraded plumbing fixtures. Even if you only have a few hundred dollars to spend, you can replace dated light fixtures, repaint cabinetry and replace out-of-date hardware in the kitchen.
A close second to kitchen remodels are bathroom upgrades. Small things like new toilet seats or pedestal sinks are quick, easy and inexpensive upgrades for the bathroom. Old, discolored vinyl flooring can be replaced with stick-on vinyl floor tiles for an instant upgrade.
Stained or out-of-date carpeting can date a home, and icky carpeting will make potential buyers pass over your home quickly. Replacing the carpeting will make the house look and feel much cleaner and pleasant. However, you should definitely choose a neutral color if you plan on selling in the near future.
