What renovations offer the biggest impact on a home’s value?

Let’s see…

1. An Addition

Any type of home expansion, whether it’s a new bedroom, a new den or a larger living room, will have a huge impact.

2. Master Bath

The master bath should be as bright and large as possible. Potential buyers want lots of space in their master bath. A separate water closet and a spacious shower with multiple shower-heads are must haves. In the most luxurious homes, there is the new trend of a separate sink and water closet for each person and only sharing the shower.

3. Kitchen

Updating a kitchen with new appliances and plumbing fixtures is a must! The most popular kitchen features that are wine refrigerators, drawer-style microwave and dishwashers, commercial style ranges, and hidden electrical outlets.

4.Outdoor Living Space

Tap the outdoors for additional living space. A screened-in porch or a paved backyard patio- especially one that includes an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill and small fridge- makes a great additional entertaining area. These features are in demand.
