Selling your home may not be something you are considering at this time, but remodeling may be. Remodeling key areas in your home now can add considerable value to your home when or if you decide to sell. But instead of remodeling at sale time, why not remodel now so you and your family can enjoy the benefits of the new features in your home?
Consulting a realtor before selling your home can help you decide what improvements are going to be beneficial to you and your home. Obviously, a freshly remodeled kitchen or bathroom can greatly increase your home’s value. A new kitchen can add 95% of the cost of remodeling to the value of the home and a new bathroom can add a whopping 130% of its value to your home at resell time. Landscaping your property can add 100% of the cost to your home; adding a fireplace can add 160% of its cost.
When remodeling your kitchen, concentrate on the design you want. Many kitchens are crammed into a small room, with little room to maneuver or function. Consider opening up the floor area for a center island, breakfast bar, or even additional cabinet space.

You can add an indoor grill, warming trays, new appliances, and other extras for a seasoned cook. These improvements will greatly increase the resell value of your home and give you the opportunity to enjoy them before considering a resell.
The bathroom is another important space that you can remodel to improve your every day life and increase your home’s resell value. Fixtures found today for bathroom improvements are not only functional, but give your bathroom a luxurious look and feel. You may want to consider installing a roomy shower, a new shower head that is water saving, a whirlpool tub, or even towel warmers.
