How To Upgrade Your Home Without Pricing Yourself Out Of The Market

If you’re a homeowner and have thought about remodeling your home, you may have been wondering what upgrades will have the biggest impact on your ROI.  Deciding what upgrades to make can be challenging.  Do the right upgrades and you will be padding your bank account, do the wrong upgrades, and you’ll find that you’ve priced yourself right out of the market.  Here are a few tried and true upgrades that will bring you a good return on your investment.

1.  Painting your home is one of the most cost-effective improvements you can make to your home.  If you can afford to paint the interior as well as the exterior, your return will be even greater.

2.  New appliances are another upgrade that will increase the value of your home.  However, you don’t need to go out and buy the most expensive appliances on the market.  Most buyers won’t know the difference between a mid-grade appliance and an upper grade appliance.  

3.  You can almost never go wrong with a bathroom upgrade.  Small upgrades can be done at a relatively minor cost.  You could easily replace your old vanity with a pedestal sink, replace the light fixtures or add a nice new tile floor.
