Home remodeling is a major investment for many people. Costs can quickly add up, which is why it’s important to develop a good budget before beginning any construction. When you have a budget in place, you can start deciding what type of home remodels you actually want. There are plenty of options when it comes to home remodeling, but which ones are worth it?
Read on to learn which remodels will increase your home value and which probably won’t help attract potential buyers:
- Remodeling the kitchen: Everyone wants a good-looking kitchen. If you’re wanting to sell your home but the kitchen looks a little worse for wear, it’s probably good to invest in some remodels. There are plenty of kitchen remodels that could help attract potential buyers. Consider investing in some new, energy-efficient appliances or upgraded countertops. New flooring and cabinets can be quite expensive, but they often attract buyers. Making minor kitchen remodels is the best way to see a return on your investment.
- Replacing the garage door: A new garage door can work wonders when you’re trying to sell your home. It will greatly enhance the curb appeal of your home. It’s especially important to replace your garage door if it’s broken beyond repair. Most of the time, potential buyers will want to test the garage door. If it doesn’t work, they might be instantly turned off from your home.
- Expanding the master bedroom: Those searching for their new home want the perfect master bedroom. Expanding your master bedroom a few feet could make your home stand out among the many others that buyers have already seen. You might even consider expanding the bathroom attached to your master bedroom.
- Investing in new siding: There are many beautiful and relatively inexpensive siding options available, including manufactured stone veneer, fiber-cement and vinyl. New siding can breathe new life into your home and greatly add to its curb appeal. Consult with a local reputable remodeling company, and see what types of siding they offer. Seeing the siding in person will likely make your decision much easier.
Investments not worth the cost
Now that you know about the home remodels that are worth the investment, it’s also important to be aware of those that are not worth it. For the most part, investing in a pool or spa will cost more money than it’s worth. While a pool and spa can entice potential buyers, it doesn’t add much to a home’s value. Plus, owning a pool requires plenty of maintenance and care that not everyone has time for.
Sunrooms are another popular remodel that isn’t usually worth the cost when it comes to increasing a home’s value. These structures can cost around $30,000 to install and don’t add enough to a home’s value to make that money back. That said, many people enjoy having sunrooms and pools. If you don’t plan on moving anytime soon, these could both be good investments.
