“Buy low and sell high” is the most fundamental advice to follow regarding any investment. Buying a home is usually a long-term investment, and many homeowners just assume it will improve in value over the years. The problem is that a home can also depreciate, particularly if it becomes dated and run down. The current condition and improvements made are huge factors in overall property value.
If you want your home to fetch top dollar and be easy to market, you have to understand how to make smart improvements. Granite countertops have been popular long enough now that it is safe to say this improvement is not a short-term trend. Buyers love granite and are willing to pay a bit extra for its unique nature, durability, and easy maintenance.
Increase in value is often referred to as ROI (Return on Investment). All this means is how much value you will get in relationship to the cash outlay, or in other words, the investment. Overall, a renovated kitchen can increase a home’s selling price by 80% to 100% of the cost of the project. The more dated the current kitchen, the more of a return you can realize. Value is not just a dollars-and-cents factor, however, as your enjoyment is also valuable.
