Home remodels can make your space more livable for your family, but are also a great thing to incorporate into your selling plan. If you are planning on putting your home on the market in the near future, there are a few remodels that can bring more return than others. Here are three remodeling projects you should consider that can up the resale of your home.
1. An Additional Bathroom
Adding an extra bathroom to your home might not be as labor intensive as you think. This can also bring more potential buyers to your property if a certain number of bathrooms is on their must-have list. Bathrooms can be added in within the existing square footage of your home if this is backed up against another bathroom or kitchen.
2. Adding a Deck
Whether your home needs its current deck updated or you have space to add this to your front or back yard, a new deck can make the exterior of your home look updated and will attract buyers. By incorporating this deck space into your open home, you can showcase this as livable space with outdoor seating and entertainment options, making this remodel worth the cost.
3. Remodeling an Attic or Basement
If you have a large space such as an attic or basement that is largely going unused as an unfinished storage space, it might be time for an upgrade. This will help potential buyers envision this space as an office, rec room, or even an additional bedroom. Adding in electricity and plumbing might not be too labor intensive and is worth exploring with your contractor.
Reviewing your budget and the extent of work your home really needs is important before taking on any sort of remodeling project. Contact us if you need ideas or help getting your projects underway before selling.
