homeowner measuring cabinetsWhen you are preparing to sell your home, you may want to do some small remodeling projects. Sprucing up your home will make it more attractive to buyers which can sell your home faster and get you a higher price. Not all remodels are creating equally, however. These projects will likely get you the best return on investment:

Focus on the Kitchen and Bathroom

The kitchen and bathroom are arguably the most important rooms in your home. They are also the most likely to be a deal-break or deal-maker for home buyers. If you are going to spend your hard-earned cash on a remodeling project, it is best spent here. A buyer does not want to spend the time and money necessary to remodel an ugly kitchen or bathroom, but they will forgive in other areas.


When you are remodeling your kitchen and bathroom, consider replacing the countertops. These are very visible to buyers and can help seal the deal for your home. Natural stone and quartz countertops are almost universally appealing and can make any room look instantly more luxurious.


When choosing remodeling projects to sell your home, you should focus on the most noticeable areas. Cabinets are at eye level, so they will not escape the attention of the buyers. You don’t need to run out and replace your cabinets, however. If they are in reasonable condition, a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware will make them look new.

These are just three remodeling projects that add value to your home and attract buyers. In our next post, we’ll show you more ways to increase your home’s value. Contact The Hometown Team, today when you are ready to sell your home.
