Home renovations… which ones add value?

HGTV gives us all exciting ideas for home renovations.  As REALTORS® , we’re asked all the time which home renovations are the best to do when it comes to the resale value of a property.  It’s always best to do the renovations that you will personally enjoy while you’re living in your home, but it’s also smart to look to the future and the impact on resale.  Taking on home renovations will take a lot of your time and money. Best to find out first which projects will bring you the best return.  Some home renovations, such as an outdoor swimming pool, might be appealing to you and your family but actually make your property less desirable to most buyers.  Alternatively, renovations to kitchens and bathrooms generally add to the appeal of the home to even more buyers!
