Homeowners often look for home renovations that add value to their home. They hope to enjoy the best return on investment possible, so they avoid upgrades that statistically do not raise the selling price by the amount paid for the renovation. While this isn’t a bad plan overall, there is another consideration if your goal is to make your home sell for more down the road – make it more marketable. The way to accomplish that is to consider home renovations that will make your home stand out in buyers’ minds. Here are a few ideas that could spark a bidding war that will drive up the selling price, thereby accomplishing your goal:
- Backyard Design – Just a few minutes on social media and you’ll quickly see that luxury backyards with a swimming pool, patio, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, water feature, gazebo, and such are all the rage. People who work hard are seeking out ways to relax and an inviting backyard appeals to them immensely. You should also consider how your home looks from the street as exterior renovations to increase curb appeal will also make your home more desirable.
- Specialty Rooms – Everyone likes to feel like they have something unique about their home that they can feel proud about. Hence, it makes sense that a specialty room, such as a finished basement, guest house, media room, wine cellar, luxury kitchen, sunroom or other added feature will make your home stand out and be more marketable.
- Upgrade – If your home is lacking a feature that is in demand, such as having too few bedrooms or bathrooms, this is the most critical of home renovations to focus on. It is one thing to be even with the other properties on the market. It is quite another to be at the bottom of the pecking order, so to speak.
