Adding Value to Your Property

Which items add value to your home?

Typically, choosing function over cosmetic and neutral over unusual will serve well for resale.  Current trends can also affect the value.

What changes add the most value to your property?

  • Increasing usable space (extra bathroom, larger and/or upgraded kitchen, master bedroom suite, more closet space, conversion of unused space to a home office).
  • Updates that will lighten and brighten your rooms (white or light color paint and floor coverings, light woods, skylights, larger windows, French doors).
  • Updates that will open your home to the outdoors for fresh air and entertaining (French doors to the patio or garden).
  • Updates that will increase privacy and security (fencing, landscaping).
