It’s the busiest time of the real estate year. But, if your home isn’t exactly in “showing” shape, don’t worry. Some experts say that best time to sell might actually be in the fall or winter, which means you still have plenty of time to spruce up your home before you put it on the market. Here are four home improvements that add the most value to your property.
1. Remodeling The Kitchen
The kitchen is still considered the heart of the home. As long as you don’t go overboard, according to HGTV, you can expect a 60 to 120 percent return on your investment with a kitchen remodel.
2. Bathroom Additions
Don’t spend money on a bathroom you already have. Your money is better spent adding a second bath. According to a National Association of Realtors study, adding a bathroom can increase the sale price of a home by 8.7 percent, more than twice the rate for adding a bedroom.
3. Energy-Efficient Insulation
If your home lacks proper insulation (which allows plenty of hot and cold air through), home inspectors will specify this to potential buyers.
4. Adding Energy-Efficient Windows
These days, homeowners shop with energy efficiency in mind. Not only can you save on heating and cooling costs with new windows, but you’ll also receive a tax credit, which can in turn recoup your investment.
