As you look around your Alpharetta home, there may be many home improvement projects that you wish to complete. By prioritizing these projects wisely, you can greatly increase your property value. Some projects have a much higher return on investment (ROI) than others and completing those projects will help you get the most money out of your home sale.
Here are several home improvement projects to consider if you want to increase your property value.
Update Your Front Door
The front door is the entry point into your home. If this area is in tip-top condition, all of your guests, as well as potential buyers, will be anxious to see inside your home. This is also a project that will greatly improve the curb appeal of your property and does not take much time to complete. According to a 2018 Zillow color analysis, by choosing a front door that is charcoal or a shade of black, you can increase your property value by more than $6,000.
Minor Bathroom Remodel
You don’t have to complete a full bathroom renovation to increase your home’s property value. By simply updating this room with a few smaller projects, you will see a big return. In fact, the average return at resale for a minor bathroom remodel is 102%. With this project, consider refinishing the tub, applying a fresh coat of paint on the walls, updating the light fixtures, and replacing the vanity if necessary.
Improve Your Home’s Landscaping
A home with gorgeous landscaping will also see an increase in property value. Even better, you don’t have to hire a professional landscaper to reap the rewards.
