Royal LePage has put together a blog post on improvements that increase your home’s value. Not surprisingly kitchens top the list. Details here.
Amusingly I stumbled upon another post that lists those improvements that decrease the value of your home. Some listed are dated updates, but some are current choices. Two that stand out for me are combining 2 rooms – I think that can be good according to how many rooms you have, but converting a two bedroom condo into a one bedroom is not necessarily a good idea. And my favourite, or I should say least favourite: do it yourself. If you do improvements yourself be sure they are done properly otherwise they are improvements that a buyer recognizes as something that must be redone.
