Big Impact, Low Cost home remodling projects for Roanoke, VA.

Real Estate Agent with Long and Foster Realtors

      Big impact, low cost remodeling projects can make a big difference when listing your home for sale. In a recent issue of the National Association of Realtors magazine "Realtor" several projects were discussed for Sellers who have some, but not unlimited cash for upgrades.

       One place that has a big impact on homebuyers is the kitchen. Adding pull out shelving to exisitng cabinets is a great way to update without replacing.


      Most home improvement stores carry inexpensive tile that can beused to update a backsplash or add a new one. For $1 to $2 a tile and the cost of labor this is a great way to add some new color to a kitchen.

      The final tip is to have an electrician replace old track lighting with recessed canned lights on a dimmer switch to add ambiance.

These three projects can update and brighten up a kitchen to give it a polished new look, while maintaining a moderate budget. Homeowners who are interested in listing their home for sale should consult with a professional Realtor for more information about upgrades that can benefit them the most when preparing their home for sale.
