If you want to sell your home in Pennsylvania, you may want to take time beforehand preparing it so you can get the best price possible. While there are many renovations and additions you can do, some pay off more than others. The last thing you want to do is put a lot of money in your home without getting a nice return on your investment when you sell. Luckily, Bankrate explains there are proven renovations that do pay off.
One of the first things you may want to do is a complete renovation of your kitchen or a bathroom. These may seem like a huge payoff. However, leave the bathroom alone. Instead opt for a minor renovation in the kitchen. Repaint cabinets, put in new countertops, buy new appliances and repaint the walls. Do not do a complete overhaul as it will not pay off.
Many of the renovations you can make are to improve curb appeal. Change your garage door. This is an easy project that pays off big. Replace your siding to update it or replace it with stone veneer, which is an even bigger boost to your home’s value. You should also change the front door. Make sure it is more secure. Finally, you can add on deck to make the backyard more usable.
In any case, before you do a renovation, make sure to check the return on your investment. Do not do anything that would not increase your home’s value. This information is for education. It is not legal advice.
