Adding Value

Which items will add value to your home and help with resale when the time comes to sell?

Looking to add value to your home and improve its resale potential? Focus on updates that future buyers will want and be willing to pay for. As a general rule, functional updates and neutral colors tend to have the greatest appeal.

Some updates that can add value to your home include adding extra bathrooms, upgrading the kitchen, creating a master bedroom suite, adding more closet space, and converting unused space into a home office.

Additionally, updates that lighten and brighten rooms, open the home to the outdoors, and increase privacy and security can also be valuable. Keep in mind that taste and current trends can also impact the value of an update."
