Whether you are selling your home, just purchased your first home, or are a homeowner planning to stay put for a while, there is value in knowing which home improvement projects will net you the most Return On Investment (ROI). If you are looking to sell your home, it is important that you speak with an experienced Realtor®, like the Tim Kirk Team, to discuss whether it will be a smart investment to perform upgrades prior to listing your home. A real estate agent will know the area, the market and will have insight to whether or not upgrading pre-listing will be a wise investment. Additionally, a real estate expert may have some great referrals to help you get the work done. You want to make upgrades that will suit your preferences but you also want to think about the return you can get on that investment when the time comes that you choose to sell your home.

While big projects like adding a bathroom or a complete kitchen remodel are popular ways to increase a home’s value, they can be very pricey upgrades and something as simple as updating landscaping and curb appeal can have a quick impact on a home’s value and can help your home sell quicker.

Upgrading your curb appeal and landscaping gives your home a fresh image. When potential buyers approach the home, you want them to imagine walking up the walkway each day to their new home rather than thinking of all the work and dollar signs they would need to put into the house to make it something they are proud of.

A roof install is one thing that may be a deal breaker to many homebuyers. To a homebuyer, a poor roof may cause the potential buyer to see an expensive investment, an unkempt home and other potential problems with the house. A new roof install can provide a great return on investment and will save you from other issues like leaks and mold.

A common feedback remark from buyers is flooring. Buyers often are looking for their dream home to be move in ready with clean, durable flooring. A flooring upgrade can be a wise investment.

In Southern California, buyers are often looking forward to spending time outdoors in the warm California sun. A patio or deck is often the ideal space for a buyer to sip on a cold one and relax in the sun with a good book. Investing in an outdoor living space can be a great investment.
