Spending money on upgrades with hopes that the investment will generate profit is a common practice for sellers. Aside from simple upgrades, such as new curtains or adding a fresh coat of paint, practical improvements that improve the livability of the home have the best proven return on investment. Examples include: Altering the layout or functionality of a home will typically improve its value more than a large construction effort that adds structure but not form. An upgraded kitchen or eating area will probably have more value than a swimming pool or backyard water feature for example. Improving a plumbing or heating system, such as incorporating modern energy-saving technology is another upgrade that has proven value. Any upgrades that reduce operating costs or reduce its environmental footprint are also popular. Switching to energy-efficient lighting, sealing off heat loss areas and upgrading a home’s insulation are relatively simple choices. Builders know that certain upgrades pay off when it comes time to sell. Remodelled bathrooms, the installation of new windows and others have historically added to a home’s value. Before you begin, create a budget and try to calculate how much your efforts will add to the home’s value. Talking with a REALTOR®, a home builder or staff at the local home improvement store might provide you with ideas as well. Then, once you’re ready, get to work.
