Home Upgrades That Are Most Likely to Capture a Return on Their Investment

Home Upgrades That Are Most Likely to Capture a Return on Their Investment

Are you considering selling your Shuswap home in the near future? Has this got you thinking of some upgrades that can be made to increase its value so that you can capture a return on their investment? Let’s consider some of the most valuable upgrades that will attract potential buyers when your home hits the market.

Do you have a different bold colour paint in every room? Repainting in a neutral colour will create a clean blank canvas that can help potential buyers envision their belongings in the home – and a neutral colour palette applies to the widest variety of buyers. Fun fact; 2023 design trends say neutral taupe shades are in and greys are on the way out. 

This feature can be a huge selling point for a home. There will be no need for bulky window air conditioners that block views of the outdoors anymore. Get the cool air flowing to beat the summer heat, so that a potential buyer can be confident they’ll be comfortable in the warmer weather. 

You may not need a full remodel here, so consider what you already have and what could be done to modernize or make these spaces as efficient as possible. A facelift may be enough - painting, refinishing surfaces, new hardware or updated appliances could be just the boost they need. 

Are your windows and doors as old as the house? There are so many benefits to replacing these items - they will be aesthetically appealing, new technologies save on energy costs and they can add increased character and functionality too. A big win for a potential buyer! 

Is your basement currently under-utilized because it’s unfinished? There are lots of ways to think about how to best transform this space. Consider how a buyer would use the space as a living room, storage space or room to host company. Keep in mind that a basic refinishing could be the boost the property needs to add finished square footage. 

There are so many options to give your home the boost it might need to hit the market running! If you’re ready to chat about listing your home on the Shuswap market - I am only a call away  250.832.7051
