Home renovation reality shows have inspired many homeowners to consider costly upgrades for their own homes. While many home improvement projects are worthwhile, it’s important to know which ones are worth it from an investment standpoint.
Think of your renovation project in terms of what will appeal most to potential buyers, even if you’re not considering selling anytime soon. Converting a garage into a living space or eliminating a bedroom or a closet may cause future buyers to cross your home off the list; these spaces are among the most important to potential homeowners.
Be cautious when undertaking large-scale renovation projects. While smaller DIY touch-ups and proper home staging can yield big dividends for sellers, large projects may not always pay off.
Consider the resale market in your neighborhood before deciding on a renovation project. This is particularly important if you’re considering large-scale projects, like a full kitchen renovation or converting an attic space into an extra bedroom.
