Best Home Upgrades

According to BankRate, there are a few home upgrades that pay off for resale. The suggestions are:

  1. Upgrade the kitchen with nicer cabinets, fancier hardware, and good fixtures.
  2. Make your kitchen appliances match in color/design.
  3. Spruce up the bathrooms with new toilets or contemporary vanities.
  4. Brush a fresh coat of paint on just about everything.
  5. Make sure you create ample storage spaces.
  6. Get your plumbing and electrical in tip top shape.
  7. Make sure your flooring is clean and in good repair.
  8. Install quality lighting throughout your home.
  9. Make sure your front door is inviting.
  10. Add some curb appeal to get folks to look beyond the yard.

    In fact your house should look as if you are going to look there yourself and for sure you will sell very quickly in such a way.

    Thanks for the ideas. However, I need to budget a particular amount to complete everything in the list. This is great help for anyone who plans to sell their houses.

    Apparently buyers make their mind up within the first 10-20 seconds if they want to buy your house,so leaving a good first impression is vital.As you say,having a tidy, well kept front garden & front door can only help.The 2 most vital rooms for selling are the bathroom & kitchen,get these two roomslooking good & your halfway there !

    For me kitchen upgrade is priority. I spend most of my time in the kitchen and I want a kitchen that is easy to clean, lots of storage and spacious enough to cook and bake.

    Nice roundup Alison! My kitchen is my sanctuary so I make sure everything is perfect but I have a little trouble in choosing space saver furniture.

    These are the typical things I need to do for our home right now. I want to have a repair and renovation because I want a fresh new look for my home. I do believe that it’s also important to have a nice home because it will make you relax in some way. Also, you need to allocate budget for this type of home upgrade.

    Every time we upgrade our home into something new I get excited and want to help into constructing anything about hardware, cabinets and painting stuff. It’s really interesting to me and I really enjoy doing it. By the way, I consider this list as tips when we do the next home upgrade.

    In this kind of upgrades a family needs to invest and allot time to achieve a beautiful home. There are a lot of upgrades we made in our house. As the time goes by we learned a lot in upgrading our home. We saved more money than before. It’s also fun to be involved in this kind of home project because of the result we’ll have after all the hardwork.
