Often, a renovation of some sort is needed when you want to sell your Edmonton home with a profit. Basic repairs and maintenance, improvements in curb appeal and value-added space and functionality add the most value.
Read on for ideas of which renovation projects you could do next.
The word "basement" often conjures up images of darkness and dusty and musty area. As a result, basements are the most underrated areas in an Edmonton home. Basements could be converted to a home theatre, gym or recreational room. All will add value and greater saleability.
In some of our older homes, adding a bedroom attic is one way for a homeowner to capitalize the value of an Edmonton home which can make most of the living space. Remember that when adding something to an Edmonton home, when you can’t build out you can usually build up!
A deck can function as an open-air room, a great feature for buyers who are into grilling, barbeques or just want to spend some time outside.
One of the top priorities of Edmonton home buyers is the kitchen. Focus on remodeling a kitchen to make it a modern, sleek and functional kitchen. New cabinetry, state-of-the-art appliances, and vital storages are just of the features you can add to a kitchen. Even a mild renovation can help raise the value of your Edmonton house.
Edmonton home buyers are looking for more than one full bathroom, especially if they have families. If possible financially and space wise, plan for a full bathroom or half-bathroom addition. If there is not enough space for an additional bathroom, then renovating an existing bath can add to resale value.
Painting your Edmonton House before a sale is the cheapest way to have an impact on buyers and ultimately get you more money. A little elbow grease goes a long way in improving the overall look of the home.
Home renovations, big or small, will increase the value of the Edmonton house. This is the goal of every seller, isn't it? So what are you waiting for? Start renovating!!
