Making decisions about interior remodeling shouldn’t be limited to aesthetics. In fact, you should base your choice about a home addition or remodel on what will make your home most valuable when it comes time to sell. First, think about where your house is located and the housing market in that area. Consider how much you plan to spend versus how much your home is worth. Additionally, think about your floor plan and what makes the most sense in terms of selling value. If you have an older home with four bedrooms but only one bathroom, it would be wiser to add another bathroom before embarking on a master bedroom makeover. Most buyers are looking for functional spaces over luxury, which often translates to the kitchen and bathrooms. It is easy to tell if time and money has been invested in these spaces, and it’s important to invest in these areas as most of the time spent in the home is spent here. However, if your basic home maintenance, like siding, isn’t up to par, start there before a fancy kitchen remodel. Buyers don’t care how awesome the kitchen or master bedroom looks if the siding is falling off or there’s a leak in the basement.
The layout and location of your home will inform the remodels you should invest in. As said earlier, start with functional spaces you spend a lot of time in: kitchen and bathrooms. However, be warned: it’s easy to desire fancy upgrades in these areas. For the kitchen, choose traditional-style updates for cabinetry and countertops that have a timeless look. People tend to hang out in the kitchen more than families did 20 years ago, so consider adding a dining area to the kitchen or removing the wall that separates the kitchen from the dining room. Buyers prefer large kitchens over a kitchen and dining room combination. For appliances, think high quality, but not luxury. When it comes to the master bathroom, invest in a shower over a jacuzzi tub. Most people are too busy to take baths, so it ends up being wasted space. Instead, extend the shower and add storage space. It may seem like a loss to remove the bathtub, but most buyers will be thankful for the extra space. If your home has only one bathroom, consider adding a half bath to increase your home’s value.
