Top 5 Home Renovations that Increase Your Home’s Value. 

The Kitchen

The heart of the home as we know it has the most significant impact on the value of your home. Having a modern up to date kitchen with newer appliances will always attract today’s savvy buyers.


A close second to the kitchen. Today’s buyers are looking for more than 1 bathroom and if you have the space to add another 3 or 4 piece do it! It will increase the value and the amount of potential buyers interested in your home.


Having a finished basement or more livable space in the basement will go a long way with most buyers today who are looking for more space. Buyers are working from home and need space for a home office preferably on a different floor. Other buyers may need more space for entertaining, exercising and even just having an extra bedroom for a teenager or guests. A finished basement always adds significant value to a home.


One of the most important features of your home is what you are walking on. Newer hardwood floors are always a good idea. There are also some great alternatives available today such as engineered hardwood, laminate even some vinyl can work great. Good quality tile floors in the bathroom are also highly desired and really a must. 

Fixtures & Electrical

An easy way to increase the value of your home is to update older kitchen cabinets, countertops, vanities and faucets in bathrooms. You can also replace hardware on doors, kitchen cabinets and replace old tired electrical light fixtures. These are simple updates that will bring new life to your home and appeal to today’s buyers who are looking for the latest trends.
