Small Projects With Big Payback – Especially If You Are Moving
The possibilities are infinite when it comes to remodeling and upgrading your house, and making decisions about where to put your hard-earned dollars can be daunting. However, many remodeling decisions can be made based on whether or not you’re planning to stay in your home long term.
It’s important to realize that there’s not always a direct relationship between exactly how much you put into a specific remodeling project and exactly what you get back in return. In fact, if you consider home improvements item by item, you might decide that taking on almost any individual improvement prior to putting your home up for sale is seen as a losing proposition.
Yet, when you gradually add smaller-size improvements combined with vision and creativity, you can actually create an overall house improvement, and a more sizeable return on your investment.
Here’s a look at the areas where about a $10,000 investment in can go the distance:
- Upgraded Kitchen. While this amount of money is not going to get you a massive, full size kitchen renovation, it will leave enough extra cash to make many other upgrades. Consider upgrading old, tired out appliances. Other options: cabinet resurfacing and upgrading countertops can be very affordable and make a big difference.
- Master bath. Once again, while $10,000 will not go very far, you can actually create a “wow” effect. Upgrade your shower to a frameless glass enclosure, try adding new fixtures, and perhaps a new vanity and countertops.
- Fresh paint and new carpet. Repaint your home’s interior, keeping things neutral with soft earth tones. Then, to make things eye-appealing, add some colorful pillows and accessories with “pop.” Also, be sure to replace the existing carpet in a universal, neutral shade.
- Curb appeal. Trim the hedges, keep the grass in good condition, plant some bright colored flowers, and give your front door a fresh coat of paint. Finally, add some unique outdoor lighting.
