Top 3 Renovations To Boost Your Property’s Value

Prep Your House for the Fall. Taken by: Scott Webb
Wondering where to invest your renovation budget to get the most bang for your buck? According to a 2018 cross-Canada Royal LePage Home Improvement Survey, here are the top 3 upgrades you can make to your home that will increase its resale value.

Kitchen

From freshly-painted cupboards and new hardware to a full kitchen overhaul, whatever budget you have put it into your kitchen. An updated kitchen can potentially increase the home’s selling price by more than 12.5%, according to Royal LePage.

Bathroom

A modern bathroom can raise your property's value by between 2.5% and 12.5% depending on the investment. A double vanity, neutral and bright colours, glass standing shower and modern fixtures will transform an old bathroom into a real estate dream.

Basement

A finished basement is a great investment since it adds considerably more living space. When converted into a separate apartment it can raise the home’s value by 10%, since it’s a potential source of rental income. Overall, a basement renovation has the potential to increase your home’s value by between 2.5% and 12.5%.

Apart from these three rooms, the Royal Le Page Survey recommends investing in interior renovations over exterior ones. Adding a pool or deck provided the least return on investment and exterior painting provided less than a 5% increase in the home’s price.
