A Guide To Upgrading Your Home

Things you should do to upgrade a home successfully.

As spring is approaching, many of you may be considering selling your home. If that’s you, here are some tips for how to improve your home so you don’t do the wrong work.

We suggest that you have somebody who knows what they're looking at come over to your house to give you some recommendations. Many sellers get caught up in an emotional attachment or they think they know what work would be best. They then upgrade their home according to their taste or style, but that doesn't necessarily translate to what the general public likes to see. We'll come in, and we'll give you recommendations based on your neighborhood, the home itself, its feel or desirability, and where you should spend money.

"Have a professional give you recommendations."

We always hear that kitchens and bathrooms are where you get the most value from your home, but that's not always true. It could be that you only need to change the pulls on your doors. Also, kitchens and bathrooms do demand a lot of money in return. Most of the time, it depends on how much you're spending. The cost of a kitchen or bathroom remodel these days is very high—especially if you're using a general contractor. We just want to make sure that you're not over-improving your home for the neighborhood, especially in this market right now, with interest rates creeping up.

If you're thinking about this, we would be happy to do a walk-through of your home and tell you what you should and should not do. We also have contractors that we trust and know that they will show up and not overcharge. Once we get to that point and we make a decision together on where you should spend your money, we can bring those people in and help you out and take a lot of the pressure off of managing a project.
