3 Home Upgrades You Should Prioritize and 3 to Avoid

If you have plans of selling your home, it’s understandable that you want to upgrade certain aspects so you can increase the property’s value. Once you do that, you’ll have a higher chance of succeeding in selling it for more money than it cost you to buy it. But whether you plan on doing it yourself or hiring a contractor like Handyman Connection® of Eden Prairie, you have to keep in mind which projects are a must and which ones you should avoid.

Prioritize:

  1. Steel Entry Doors – Steel entry doors play a huge part in making a home more energy-efficient. Plus, the security they can afford the potential buyer can be an attractive prospect. This upgrade also increases property value.

  1. Kitchen Remodeling – You can make the kitchen more spacious with new appliances. Even minor repairs that make the kitchen more appealing can go a long way.

  1. Bathroom Remodeling – A clean and upgraded bathroom can work wonders on your home’s resale value. Make the necessary repairs and replace outdated or broken items to increase your property value and attract a buyer.

Avoid:

  1. Swimming Pools – Buyers may be turned off at the prospect of owning a pool due to maintenance costs and the potential hazards that come with it. Having one installed won’t even raise your home’s value enough to recoup the money you spent.

  1. Sun Rooms – Yes, sun rooms may be a beautiful addition to your home, but they increase the taxes on the property. High taxes may dissuade buyers from purchasing your home, and a sun room may even take away yard space that they need for their own reasons.

  1. Repurposing a Garage Into a Gym – Once again, leave this to the new homeowners. There’s a chance that they may need the garage for their cars instead of a workout room.
