Getting the most value for your soon to be up for sale home includes a few things to keep in mind. Good things don’t always come to those who wait and a worthy reno will turn out to be a major reward in the end.

So, where do you begin?

In most cases the heart of the home is the kitchen. This sounds like a grand and expensive project, it doesn’t have to be, just focus on the cosmetics. Sometimes all you need is an upgrade in appliances. Other suggestions can include painting the cabinets rather than finding new ones, changing the counter tops or replacing the sink. Another recommendation for a drastic change is installing a back-splash to provide a pop. This will also recreate a total transformation.

Most importantly have it look up to date.

Some of the same enhancements used in your kitchen can also be applied in your bathroom. Adding in a sleek new floor and gutting anything that is in bad shape is required in this room of the house. Going out to buy some nice decorations to tie the space together is also a nice idea.

Now we can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. To increase your home’s value even more, you need to brighten your home. Your paint colours should be light and fresh to open-up the space and make it look like new. This is also the least expensive change. Upgrading light fixtures to something shiny and relevant is also appealing to home buyers, it ties a room together.

Don’t throw out anything you tear out either. You might be able to get some money in return or re-purpose it. You know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Just don’t leave it in your front yard, a nice curb appeal is also helpful.

Remember, not all the design modifications have to be Favorited by you, but influence those coming to view it. Great function and a renewed style is all it takes.
