I also think cosmetic efforts do increase the saleability of the home. You may not get more for it, but you just might get it sold. smile

Thanks Jilly smile I'm still getting the hang of this form thing.

As far as the post, I think it depends on several factors. First, the kind of improvements. Studies have shown that updating kitchens and bathrooms add the most value to your home.

Simple, cheap fixes such as putting a fresh coat of paint on the front door, planting flowers, and replacing old hardware on cabinets, etc., is almost always worth it.

But you also have to pay attention to the value of the homes around yours. If you renovate your house so much that it becomes the nicest one in the neighborhood, you may put your home out of the price range of those who are looking to buy in your neighborhood.

This is great information, thank you:

"Studies have shown that updating kitchens and bathrooms add the most value to your home.

And lol, zero danger of ever being the nicest house on the block... laugh

It's true that home improvement will increase its cost value. I personally think that by renovate your kitchen and bathroom,improving your garden will give you better market value. You can improve your house by using marbles, tiles and bathroom fixtures etc..Thanks.

This is quite obvious that home improvement can increase the value of any house.

If you concentrate your improvements in the right areas, you greatly increase the value of any property.

The 3 areas with the greatest returns are kitchen, bathroom and garden. But always get a professional's advice, and don't try to do it cheaply, this might end up lowering your value instead

One of the simplest, most cost-effective improvements of all is paint! Freshly painted rooms look clean and updated — and that spells value.A finished basement not only boosts the value of your home, it increases the usable square footage as well. A finished basement can be used as a rec room, workout room or even a small apartment.
