When it’s time to sell your home, it’s time to renovate
Your home is most likely your largest financial asset. Making the right decisions when renovating or adding an addition is critical. It is especially true when you want to increase a house’s value before selling it. You want to bring in twice what you spend. So, doing the home renovation right is a must.
There are many renovations you could make. But which ones will help you get the best selling price?

Kitchens and bathrooms are what sell houses.
Your kitchen must meet the functional needs of today’s consumption patterns. New appliances are nice but if your kitchen’s workflow if off, they won’t help. The dishwasher has to be next to the sink. You need cabinets near your stove and range. Having cabinets above the dishwasher and drawers beside it make unloading it easier.

And don’t forget to maximize your storage space. You can never have too much of it.
Beautify the bathrooms
