According to HGTV, the following three home improvements can earn you the best return when you go to resell your house. Even if you do not plan on reselling right away, tackling these improvements one by one may pay off in the long run.
#1. Bathroom remodel (minor). No one wants an outdated bathroom – even if you aren’t planning on selling anytime soon! An old bathroom can have moisture issues, so it is important to check the integrity of the bathtub and surrounding areas. If they appear to be worn or cracking, it is probably a good time for a remodel. Plus, you can usually earn back just over the amount of money that you put into a bathroom remodel when you go to sell the house.
#2. Landscaping. Bringing in a professional to landscape your property can pay off in the long run. Whether you are getting ready to place your home on the market, or plan to in ten years, investing in landscaping can prove worthwhile. Plus, if you can upkeep the landscaping you will only need to have it professionally done once.
#3. Kitchen remodel (minor). The transformation of a kitchen is major even when simple elements are changed. Changing out counter tops or getting the cabinets painted can alter the entire feel of a kitchen. Investing in this can pay off in the long run.
Remember, with any remodel, you will need to let your Miller-Schuring Agent know. Your coverage may need to be adjusted depending on the remodel.
