kitchen remodelingIf you are preparing to sell your home, remodeling may be something that you are considering. Large remodeling projects have the potential of being time-consuming and costly. Are you in search of  some simple things that you can do to add value to you home without breaking the bank? We have outlined five efficient ways for you to increase the value of your home.

Replace the Front Door

This may seem very rudimentary, but your front door is the first thing that people come in contact with when they visit your home. Your front door is what gives your house that curb appeal and attracts buyers to stop at your home rather than another. Upgrading your home by replacing your front door with a steel door is a simple way to make a memorable first impression. Aside from the optical benefits, a new front door can improve your home’s insulation. This can lead to a more energy-efficient home.

Upgrade the Kitchen

Kitchen upgrades can be a little bit more on the costly side but have one of the greatest returns when selling a home. The kitchen is the hub of the home and an attractive, modernized kitchen can be the selling point of your home. The annual Remodeling Impact Report stated that a complete kitchen remodeling can be around $30,000 on average. It is also states that you can receive a 67 percent return of investment on your kitchen upgrade.

Transform Attic into Bedroom

Transforming your attic into a bedroom can be one of the most efficient ways to increase the value of your home. The walls, roof, and floor are already there! All you need to do is probably have it cleaned out and converted from a storing space to a living space. There are particular regulations that need to met when converting your attic, but once they are met, you’ll be on your way to more valuable home with an extra room!

Replace Garage Door

Similar to replacing your front door, replacing your garage door has many aesthetic benefits. According to the Remodeling Impact Report, an embossed, two-car, steel garage door can cost you around $2,300. Once your house hits the market, you can expect up to an 87 percent return of investment from this simple improvement.

Add Deck/Patio

Outdoor living spaces are becoming more and more popular. When buying a home, people are now looking for welcoming outdoor spaces to enjoy with their families. The price of adding a deck or a patio on your home can be relatively inexpensive depending on the type of material used during the process. Whether it is to the front of the house or in the backyard, the addition of a deck to your home will make it more valuable.
