It’s been well over two months since the stay-at-home order was imposed and now that we are beginning to emerge from our homes, many people are investing in improvements, upgrades, or a whole new home! Whatever you decide it’s important that you consider the return on investment (ROI) of any improvement or upgrade. Here are the top three upgrades that give you the most bang for your buck.

Bathroom Remodel
In most cases, a minor master bath remodel can do wonders for your own space and your ROI. Consider investing in a new tub, tile surround, floor, toilet, sink, vanity and fixtures and get 102% of your investment back when you sell.

Landscaping
With the weather warming up, this is a perfect way to invest in your home, get some activity, and practice social distancing! Trimming back overgrown trees, adding some flowers, and re-sodding dead patches make an enormous difference in how much you enjoy being in your yard. Investing in your landscaping generally pays you back, dollar-for-dollar. Plus, having solid curb appeal will make all the difference when you’re ready to sell.

Kitchen
Let’s face it, we’ve all spent a lot of time in the kitchen, which means we know all-too-well what can be improved. Everything from cabinet pulls to refacing the cabinets itself can make a boring kitchen look brand new. If you want to go a step further, replacing the sink and countertops can make a big difference. Adding some new paint or drapes can complete a update and make you a lot happier and you can recoup about 98.5% of your cost.

Of course, any investment in your living space pays dividends in your own enjoyment. Rearranging furniture, new paint or curtains, or even a new bedspread can add fresh life to your home. And after all that work, you may find that you love your home even more! If you’re considering a change, though, call us at 303-905-8850 to speak with a REALTOR®.
