• What Home Improvements Add the Most Value for Resale?

  • From kitchen remodels to basement makeovers, there are so many improvements you can make to your home.  If you’re on the fence about what to improve – and what improvements will lead to the highest resale – read what our experts home improvers have to say:

    Bathroom Remodel

    Who doesn’t like a decked out master bathroom?  Even though the average bathroom remodel costs between $5,000 and $15,000, a bathroom remodel typically has a 60%+ return on investment.  Where you’re looking for a minor guest bathroom makeover or a major master bathroom remodel, the experts at Vinyl Sash of Michigan can help you choose the best materials and design to beautify your home.

    Kitchen Remodel

    Although a kitchen remodel costs slightly more than the average bathroom remodel – it still provides excellent value for home resale.  You can expect to spend on average $20,000, all the way up to $40,000 for a full kitchen remodel.  Not only will it provide you and your family a good space to eat meals and relax, but you will also recoup more than 50% of the renovation cost once you sell.

    Exterior Improvements

    Curb appeal is the first impression a homebuyer gets, even before they step inside.  As one of the most overlooked areas to invest in, you want to make sure your exterior – including roof repairs, decking, and window replacements – are in good shape before selling.  In the long run, the cost of new decking or a vinyl window replacement is nothing if you can hook a homebuyer that hasn’t even stepped inside your home.  Vinyl Sash of Michigan is experienced in providing quality and affordable exterior improvements to make your home shine.

    How to Budget for Renovations

    You may be wondering: renovations are great, but how am I going to pay for them?  Don’t be afraid to cut spending in other areas and create a budget for your new home remodel.  Here are a few tips we recommend to clients looking to stay on track throughout a remodel:

    1. Talk to an expert agent about improving your home before you set your budget.  There’s an art to remodeling so you recoup as much of your costs as possible; you don’t need to spend abhorrently.
    2. Spend most of your budget on big ticket items that are expensive to replace – it’s always better to buy once.
    3. Unexpected expenses almost always come up.  Good news is – you can plan for them ahead of time.  Expect to spend 10-15% of your budget on these miscellaneous expenses.
