7 Best Home Improvement Investments to Boost Your Home's Value


Not all home improvement projects are created equal. Some increase the property’s overall market value while some others do not. So if you are thinking about selling your home a few months from now, better invest in the following home improvement projects to get the best bang for your buck. 

Improve the front yard

People love to judge the book by its cover, that’s a fact. The same thing applies when it comes to buying a house. When potential buyers see a fresh looking and well-maintained front yard, they are more likely to purchase the home.

Brighten it up

There are plenty of ways to brighten up your house. Changing the wall paint, opting for light-colored curtains and adding more lighting fixtures are some of the best ones. Make sure that each and every corner of your home is adequately lit. Make sure that the best parts of your house are highlighted with enough light.

Take care of your plumbing

Appraisers of today take plumbing into heavy consideration when assigning the value of a home. Smart buyers also check old rusty iron pipes for leaks and damage that are beyond repair. So before you put your home on the market, make sure that your plumbing system is in excellent condition.

Improve your flooring

Doing this kind of project doesn’t mean you have to totally replace your floor. Sometimes, all it takes is a bit of cleaning and wiping out dirt and dust. But if your floor is quite old and looks a bit off, total replacement could be your best option.

Update the bathroom

Cleaning up your bathroom thoroughly and replacing those old faucets and shower head can make it look more fresh and clean. Proper lighting is also a key in bathroom updating. Check out your mirror and cabinets if they need to be updated or replaced.

Renovate basement and attic

A well-maintained basement and attic can instantly add significant value to your home. Even more, if you can convert it into another type of room – like a gaming room or a home office. Make it a livable space so the home buyers can see it as a valuable part of your home.

Make your kitchen more lovable

Your kitchen can make or break your home’s value. So make sure that it’s in pristine condition before letting people (potential buyers) see your home. Don’t let a squeaky cabinet door, chipped tile or dirty countertop turn down your home’s worth.
