Home renovations are part of maintaining and improving a home.
Your home is likely your primary invesment so a popular questions is:
Will a renovation improve the value of my home?
The answer is... it depends.
When people view a house, they see positives and negatives.
Examples of negatives or Distractors include:
- Bad roof.
- Scary bathroom.
- Damp basement.
- Loose handrails.
- Exposed wiring.
These kinds of distractors indicate that a house was
not maintained or poorly looked after. You must fix these negatives
or only handy folk will consider your home... and for a discount.
Examples of positives include:
- Nice kitchen.
- Nice bathrooms.
- Welcoming space and colours.
Although the negatives are easy to justify fixing, the positives
are much harder to quantify, and this is where you should involve
your realtor to help you.
I've never heard anyone say
"I won't buy this house because the kitchen is too nice".
However, a million dollar kitchen in a half-million dollar house would
just be a waste of half a million.
