With houses remaining on the market for months, or even years, now is not a good time to be selling your home, says BankRate.com.
It has become the trend that short of short-selling your home, making attractive upgrades and renovations make all the difference to potential buyers with many homes to choose from.
However, if you have decided to stay in your home, rather than sell right now, remodeling your home for comfort or aesthetic reasons are also worthwhile in both the short and long run.
The recession discouraged home sellers from spending on home improvements, and large home remodeling jobs have decreased because people are not sure about the economy.
A minor kitchen remodel can also translate into a nice return. You will recoup anywhere from 71-73% of your cost.
What is a minor kitchen remodeling job? Start with your kitchen cabinets. You don’t need to replace your old cabinets. Refacing and refinishing kitchen cabinets is a very economical option that will enhance the appearance and style of your kitchen.
Paint, new countertops and perhaps new flooring can also have a dramatic effect on the look and feel of your kitchen.
Regardless of what you spend on a minor kitchen remodel, you can be promised a large return on your investment.
