Are you looking to increase the value of your home while staying within your budget? Full remodels, even for one room, can cost many thousands of dollars, and while the cost may be worth it if you’re planning on staying put, most remodeling projects increase your home’s value by at most 80 or 90 cents for every dollar you invest. Thus, if you’re looking to sell your home right away, or if you’re buying and selling a home for profit, you want to keep your improvements simple and cheap.
It’s more than just a roof over your head, or a place you go when work’s over – your home is probably the most valuable asset you own. So it makes perfect sense that you maintain, nurture and enhance its appeal, and make it, well, the perfect home. And you don’t need a bulldozer to do that; you’ll find that quality wins over quantity. That a nifty touch here and a clever tweak there often add more value to your living space than the most extravagant additions or renovations.
