Get Your Money’s Worth in Home Improvements
Home improvements can take a bite out of your budget. But if you choose updates that increase your home’s value and do the work yourself, you can get a return on your investment when you sell.
If you think you may sell your home in the next few years, read our tips to know which improvements are worth the money - and work.
Start with the kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home, so when you’re updating, start here. Many buyers are looking for stainless steel appliances these days, but you don’t have to go top-of-the-line. If your kitchen doesn’t already have a double sink, consider installing one. Solid wood cabinets and new floors can also make an impression on potential homebuyers.
Upgrade your interior
A new coat of paint goes a long way, and this is an easy update you can do yourself. Crown molding and wider baseboards can give your rooms an updated look. In the bathroom, consider new fixtures and new countertops. Add closet organizers to increase the impression of storage space for potential buyers.
Your house should be appealing to people driving or walking by. Freshen your home’s exterior with a pressure wash. Add curb appeal by making sure your landscaping is attractive and neat.
Enjoy your hard work
When you’re done renovating, enjoy the benefits of your updated home. And make sure you keep your home and all its updates protected with insurance from Nationwide.
