You talk there, you laugh there, you eat there, and you share there. Your kitchen is always one of the most important rooms in your home, so in preparation to list your home, it should come as no surprise that the kitchen is an important room in the eyes of a prospective buyer. Although it sounds like a larger investment, it is predicted that homeowners receive a 60%-120% recovery on kitchen renovations in the sale of their home. So what is something that can be done to brighten and uplift your kitchen, while staying on budget, and adding value? Although it sounds complicated, there are some simple kitchen renovations that can be done, for a reasonable price that can greatly increase the value of your home.
Everyone’s most dreaded moment is discovering a “bad” or dated bathroom in a home they thought they’d love. Increase the value of your home by giving your bathroom a quick renovation. Bathroom renovations don’t need to be a full replacement, just an update of faucets, vanities, and décor. If you’re wanting to go all in, you can even replace your existing shower and/or tub, or add a second bathroom if your home only has one. It is predicted that there is an 80%-130% recovery on bathroom renovations when the homeowner has added a second bathroom. Don't go for a costly renovation, when you can create a gleaming new look with a fresh coat of white paint, or new ceramic tiles and lighting. Replace your shower curtain with a neutral coloured curtain, and a simple new vanity set and bath mat. Adding fresh or fake flowers during a showing will give your bathroom that extra sparkle with a little work.
