So you are getting ready to sell? You know that there are a few things in the home that could stand some updating in order to increase your selling price. Your remodel budget is limited, and you are wondering where to spend it. The good news is that there are some solid answers. But there are certain remodelling jobs that can increase your selling price more than others. 

Whether you are getting ready to sell or simply want to remodel for the best value when you do sell later; these are the remodels that give you the best return on investment. 

The Kitchen 

Remodelling the kitchen is one of the most important things you can do in your home; especially if the kitchen is dated. It is often one of the first rooms a potential buyer will see, and it should make an impression. The kitchen is often considered the soul of the home, and most people spend a good deal of time here. Upgrades to countertops, cabinets, and appliances are one of the wisest investments you can make in your home. 

The Bathrooms 

Second only to the kitchen; the bathroom is the room in the house where dated fixtures or flooring can cost you a sale. People want a bathroom that is clean, comfortable, and modern, a place of privacy and peace. Spending money on a bathroom remodel will almost always be the best way to spend your money; and you will see it in your selling price. 

Curb Appeal 

Getting people in to look at your house is the first step. Spending some of your remodel money on the exterior of the house and the landscaping is the best way to do that. Improving the look of the house from the outside means you can bring more people in to look and to buy. There is no underestimating the importance of curb appeal. 

An Addition 

With a small house, adding on square footage can mean adding a lot to the selling price. If you can swing it, an addition is a smart way to make your house worth a lot more money. 

Remodelling your house now for a better sale price later is a smart move. The sooner you do it, the more you will be able to enjoy it before it is time to sell and move on. With these smart remodels, you will make maximum profit.
