When you know your home overall needs a bit of an upgrade, it’s hard to know where to start. Especially if you want to add as much value into your home while spending as little as possible, it’s best to do your research before starting any remodeling projects.
At Cordes Custom Homes, remodeling is one of our specialties. We know which projects are worth investing in to get more money for your home when you finally put it on the market. We’re here to help you make a more informed decision on your home remodeling.
Turn Your Attic into an Extra Bedroom
Have a huge attic but don’t know what to do with it? Turning it into an extra bedroom will help you get more out of your home financially. Adding an extra room to your home without altering the square footage will save you extra money on the renovations, as well as make your home worth so much more on the market. If you can manage to add an extra bathroom in the attic with it, it’ll boost the home’s value even more. The addition of rooms and bathrooms puts the home in an entirely new category on the market, allowing sellers to charge more. The return on investment for an attic remodel is around 85%.
Do a Major or Minor Kitchen Remodel
A minor kitchen remodel might just be replacing cabinets and hardware, installing new appliances, replacing old countertops, or changing out the flooring, where a major kitchen remodel might include all of those things. Since so much time is spent in the kitchen, potential buyers often seek out homes with updated kitchens. This means remodeling this part of your home is very likely to get you more value for your home when you sell it. Buyers are also more willing to buy an older home as long as the kitchen is newly renovated, which means even if you can’t update the rest of your home, updating the kitchen will still help you get more for your home. The return on investment for a minor kitchen remodel is a little more than 80%, and for a major kitchen remodel, it’s almost 75%.
Invest in a Bathroom Remodel
Bathroom remodels are incredibly common, as they’re often one of the rooms in a home that become outdated fastest. Replacing an old, grimy tub with a big walk-in shower and updating the toilet and sink can do wonders for your bathroom. In older homes, bathrooms often have colorful tiles that date the home, and changing that out with new, timeless tiles can completely transform the space. If your bathroom is in desperate need of an update, it’s definitely not a bad place to start. The return on investment for a bathroom remodel is almost 75%.
