How to Add Value to your Home

What are the best ways to add value to your home?

Whether you’re a seller or you’re a buyer, this may be applicable to you. 

Are you a buyer? 

As a buyer, it is always best and recommended to get something older.  The reason being is you can add value to that you might want to update and enjoy it either for yourself or your future. 

Kitchen and bathroom renovations typically go very far. This is a great investment for if you want to add more value to your home, and particularly to those important, key areas of the home. 

However, if you want to do a nice refresh without spending a lot of money, one word: paint. 

Painting will be one of the best and fastest big changes if you have a dark home, for example, and want to lighten it up. 

White, of course, is a very popular choice of colour (if you want to call it a colour) that you can use in your home to refresh your walls. It will open up the room to make it look brighter especially if you have smaller windows. 

Not only will your rooms look lighter and brighter, but white is timeless. 

That’s right! 

We’ve sold homes from the 70s and 80s that were done in white originally. Yet, even with an upgrade from the owners on the counters and backsplashes, it’s hard to tell what year the home is really from.

This is because white is always in style. 

If you want to add value to your home as a seller going to the market, or as a buyer, a fresh coat of paint is always great.

Updating your laundry room, bathrooms, and kitchens will always bring you the most money.
