How long have you been living in your home? Unlike a car that depreciates the moment you drive off the lot, a home should increase in value. That increased value is important whenever you decide to sell your home or refinance. There are several home improvements you can make to bolster your value. The goal is not to invest more that that project can return. Here are some improvement projects to consider:
Painting rooms is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to freshen up a space. If you are planning on staying in your home for a while, then you can opt for any color scheme that appeals to your tastes. However, if you have an eye on resale value, then you want to stick with neutral tones. Right now, gray is a very popular color to use and it comes in a variety of shades.
Adding a backsplash to your kitchen can make a huge impact on that space without breaking your budget. A backsplash also isn’t that complicated to install unless you get into intricate mosaics. Take a look at some YouTube tutorials on this project before you commit to doing it on your own.
Granite countertops always appear at the top of the “must have” list for a majority of homebuyers. Just listing a home with a granite countertop means a quicker sale. Cost is a factor with this type of project so be on the look out for slabs that might have minor imperfections. You could end up cutting those off to fit your countertop but get the discount anyway.
If your cabinets are in good shape, then you don’t have to replace them but you could reface them. Here is where paint comes into play again. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, you might also consider removing some of the cabinet doors all together. Check on Pinterest to see what this might look like.
