Renovations that Increase Value to Your Home

If you are in the market for selling your home, it may be a good idea to upgrade the interior and/or exterior of your property with some renovations.

With the rising prices with many suppliers, it is a good idea to start on some of the renovations now rather than later, to capture the most value.

Smaller renovating projects that Increase the Value of Your Home are:

  • A minor kitchen remodel like upgrading your kitchen lights, resurfacing current cabinets
  • Replacing old caulking in the bathroom, changing the towel racks, storage and hardware
  • A coat of paint
  • Update your curb appeal with a new front door, landscaping/lawn care
  • Replacing an old garage door will improve your curb appeal
  • Installing a new water heater or water softener

If you have budgeted for bigger remodelling projects, here are some upgrades that will instantly add value to your home.

Outdoor Renos

Fences: A new fence will add more privacy and keep kids safe. It can increase the value of your home and also adds curb appeal for families with kids and pets.

Deck: Depending on the material, size, and scope of the project, you can see upwards of an 80% of the price of the deck reflected in the new value of the home.

Fire Pit: Fire pits are a nice, cozy way to increase the usability of your yard in the cooler months and add real value for potential buyers.

Indoor Renos

Bathrooms are one of the most popular home improvement projects. According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, you can expect to recover 75% of your investment. Replacing an outdated vanity, old plumbing and lighting fixtures or adding a new tile floor give your bath an updated, modern look.

Make energy-efficient updates and think of future-proofing your bathroom with a shower bench or adding a shower bench and a curbless shower to show potential homebuyers that they can “age in place”.

Replacing Old Windows

Replacing existing windows with energy-efficient ones can save the homeowner a significant amount of money in heating and cooling costs. It can be somewhat expensive, depending on the number of windows, but it’s one investment that you can make your money back. If you choose the most energy-efficient windows, it is possible that the installation cost will be offset by how much you save over time on your heating and cooling.
