You might be focusing on the wrong home upgrades...

Real Estate Agent with Samson Properties VA0225077251

Thinking about renovating your home? Some people are quick to do upgrades such as adding a pool, or getting one of those gazebos but not having enough space, or things like indoor neon signs. If you're kind of lost as to what needs upgrading to increase your property's value, here are some of the best ones to check out:

1. Upgrade Kitchen

Almost every buyer heads to the kitchen as the first thing they want to see when buying a home. If you want to stand out, install high-end appliances, use premium materials like quartz or marble countertops, and add custom cabinetry for a sleek, functional space.

2. Modernize Interiors

Open up the floor plan, upgrade to hardwood floors, and incorporate smart lighting and home automation for a contemporary feel.

3. Get a Bathroom Upgrade

Create a spa-like retreat with a rain shower, soaking tub, heated floors, and elegant tiles. Use high-quality fixtures to enhance luxury.

4. Elegant Outdoor Space

While you may think that you have everything in the bag, having a second look at these areas may help to increase your property's value. Got any questions about these? Let me know in the comments!

Hello Ritu - updates and upgrades are quite personal.  What is right for one can be wrong for another.  Timing and many sorts of other things come into play too.  A second look as you suggest as well as some discussion between the decision makers involved can often reveal much.

Definitely agree with this. Sometimes, all you need is an outsider's perspective. This is purely subjective though, but more often than not, it doesn't hurt to lend an ear from some experts in the field. Thanks, Michael!

Good afternoon Ritu,

I think you've nailed four areas that could give you a good return on our investment and are worth discussing. Well done!
