When you are looking into renovating your home, it is good to make sure that the remodels you decide to do will pay off in the long run. Investing money in your home seems like it should always be a good idea, but some renovations will not actually add value to your home. For example, building a pool, a sunroom, or adding a lot of space to your garage can turn off homeowners and typically will not give you much of a return on investment when it comes to selling your home. However, there are some great renovations that are absolutely worth the investment.

Kitchen Remodel

Renovating your kitchen can actually offer up to a 120% return on investment! Main upgrades potential buyers look for are quality cabinetry, new appliances, and nice countertops. One thing to keep in mind is to not go overboard; your kitchen should never be the fanciest room in the house!

Hardwood Flooring

Home buyers tend to look for hardwood floors when it comes to their new home. While new flooring may seem too expensive, certain factors can lower the price. Shop around for good labor and material prices without compromising on quality, and renovate a smaller space if a larger space will be too expensive.

Bathroom Remodel

No potential buyer is going to put an offer in for a home that has a particularly run-down bathroom. Your appliances should be relatively new and well maintained. Improvements such as large showers and separate tubs, specifically in the master suite, can help you get up to a 130% return. This is especially true if you only have one bathroom and are adding a second one.

Other home improvements, such as building a deck, adding storage, spending money on curb appeal, and more, are all options for smart home investments. River Oak Cabinetry can help with a kitchen or bath remodel, leaving you with a beautiful remodel any potential buyer would die for.
