How to Increase Your Home's Value


Project (average cost recouped, national) according to Realtor Magazine:


  • Minor kitchen remodel (88%)
  • Bathroom remodel (85%)
  • Major kitchen remodel (81%)
  • Family room addition (80%)
  • Deck addition (77%)
  • Master suite (75%)
  • Attic bedroom (74%)
  • Siding replacement (73%)
  • Window replacement (69%)
  • Home office (55%)


These are all good things to know, but also keep in mind if you are on a smaller budget, here are some additional things you can do:

  • Freshen up the outside with paint, or plants.  Remember, First Impressions are the best!  If your home looks appealing from the outside, people will want to go inside.
  • Fresh paint, declutter, and clean.  No one wants to smell dirty socks when they walk in the front door when they are looking for their dream home.  A fresh coat of paint does wonders.  Remember also that less is more.  The less things people see that belong to you the better they can picture their items in the home.  Sometimes people do a quick clean, plug in an air freshener, or bake a pie or cookies prior to showing.  This always gives the home a welcome feeling.
