Which Home Improvements Add the Most Value to Your Home?

If you’re interested in remodeling your home or at least making some updates, you should keep in mind how those home improvements could impact the resale value of your home. While most homeowners make updates to make their homes more practical while they’re living in them, there are plenty of projects that can increase the value of your home when it comes time to sell.

Kitchen Updates

The kitchen is often considered the heart of any home. Spending some money to update this room often pays off. As long as you keep costs reasonable, you can expect to recoup anywhere from 60 to 120% of your investment in kitchen remodels and updates.

If you aren’t looking to spend too much money in the kitchen, one thing you can do is to update the paint using modern colors. Investing in energy-efficient appliances will also save you money each month on electricity bills and be more appealing to potential homebuyers later on.

Bathroom Updates

Updating your bathroom or adding another one can really add to the value of your home, especially if you only have one restroom. According to HGTV, you can get back about 80 to 130% of what you spend by adding a bathroom when it comes time to sell. If there isn’t much space available, you can opt for a half bath. Check out the big box stores like Home Depot to save money on sinks and toilets and don’t forget to use nice tubs, doors, and other fixtures as well.

Updating Windows

Home buyers want homes that are energy efficient, and windows are a big part of that. Investing in energy-efficient windows can allow you to recoup about 60 to 90% plus you may qualify for a tax credit. You’ll also save money on heating and cooling costs each month.
