It might be hard to decide how and where to upgrade your home. Should you re-do the bathroom? Put in new wood floors? Here’s a list of the home updates that will hold their value, long after you’ve updated. This makes your home more valuable should you decide to sell.

  1. Cook Up a New Kitchen: By far the most valuable room you can update would be your kitchen. This is an investment that holds up to three-fourths of its value. Minor kitchen updates like replacing appliances or painting walls can pay off. The best investment would be replacing flooring and adding stainless steel appliances.
  2. Clean Up That Bathroom: Replace old countertops and cabinets, as well as flooring and fixtures to modernize your bathroom. Spend your money on the master bathroom, as that renovation will hold its value and appeal to buyers.
  3. Walk On New Floors: The number one most popular type of flooring requested by home buyers? Hardwood Floors. Pull up that old carpet and replace it with hardwood floors to give your home a fresh, modern feel. You’ll get back the entire cost of installing hardwoods should you decide to sell.
  4. Freshen Up The Paint: The simplest upgrade you can make to your home is to paint the interior walls. Freshening the paint can make a room feel new to you again. And, choosing neutral colors is important if you’re considering selling your home in the near future
