Now, you should not spend thousands of dollars on home renovation. It will not be a wise use of money. However, you should invest in small home improvements that will eventually boost your home’s value.


Here is the list of top 10 projects you should spend money on:


  • Clean and Declutter Your Home.

  • Focus on the Curb Appeal.

  • Spend Money on Kitchen Renovation.

  • Renovate your bathroom. Repair the drainage system. Install new faucets. Buy new shower curtains. For countertops, you can choose marble or granite. Granite is inexpensive and comes in a variety of color combinations. Use warm lighting and repaint the entire area for better visitor experience.

  • Add Green Features. Green home improvements can increase the value of your home by 1%-3%. Examples of such enhancements include energy conservation renovations. You can invest in a solar energy system, energy efficient windows, better property insulation, and electricity saving appliances.

  • Inspect the Roof and Foundation. Buyers will not purchase your home if the foundation and the roof are not functional.

  • Repair the External Walls. With time, you see that the walls get damaged. Hire a contractor to repair those small issues that can delay the sale of your home.

  • Landscaping. Investing money in this project always brings an excellent ROI.

  • Paint the Property. It goes without saying, but do not try to sell a home without painting it first. Use a neutral shade with one or two contrasting colors. A new shade of paint injects life into your home which is necessary before you can command a high price for your house.

  • Improve your Floor Plan. This one comes at the last. However, improving the floor plan can create additional space and buyers appreciate having an open floor layout and extra space.
