When it comes to home reno projects, it’s important to know which upgrades are worth your while. ⁣
Here are 4 high-ROI improvements that buyers (and you) will love:⁣
1. Open up the floor plan. Knock down walls and create the spacious layout that’s on many buyers’ wishlists. ⁣
2. Install hardwood floors or refinish your current ones. According to NAR, refinishing hardwood floors will recoup 100% of the cost at resale, while new hardwood floors recover 106% of costs.⁣
3. Swap out fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms. New knobs, pulls, and faucets, are an inexpensive way to create a cohesive, modern look. ⁣
4. Paint in a neutral palette. This allows buyers to picture their things in your space. Some go-to’s? Accessible Beige (SW7036), Agreeable Gray (SW7029), and Alabaster (SW7008).⁣
Choose upgrades that make sense. Ones that make your house feel more like home, and will have a high ROI when it comes time to sell. Not all buyers have the vision to see what your home could be, so even little changes will help them see the bigger picture.⁣
