Budget Wisely

Make sure not to spend the majority of your budget on just one room. Keep therefore the overall feel of your newly renovated home in mind as future purchasers will be put off by the fact that all other rooms are significantly more dated in comparison. Continuity throughout your renovated home is the key.

Choose structure and safety over cosmetics

Do not attempt cosmetic improvements while neglecting any underlying problems such as plumbing or electrical. These, under the surface issues should always be a priority when you are renovating!  In the end, it doesn’t matter how nice your house looks if key parts do not function properly. Ignoring safety and structure problems could ruin your new renovation as well as the sale of your home.

Ensure your upgrades are part of a bigger plan

Adding fancy new counter tops to old worn cabinets will NOT be the quick fix you were hoping for. Most homebuyers are not likely to spend money on partial “improvements” which they will have to redo. “Putting lipstick on a pig”, so to speak, does not improve the value of your house.
