Which home improvements take priority?

What to Consider

Before making the decision to start home improvement projects and renovations, ask yourself these essential questions to determine if the financial investment makes sense.

  1. What home improvements can I make to maximize resale value?
  2. Am I planning to sell my home within the year?
  3. Are these improvements something I personally desire?
  4. Are the designs and colors schemes simply my taste or will it be appealing to buyers?
  5. Do essential maintenance improvements come first?

Some investments may have a longer time period to recoup value while others are immediate. The length of time you plan to stay in your home or plans to sell your home will dictate what home improvements take precedence. Give us a call and we can guide you through the decision making process.
