Minor Kitchen Remodeling Returns 78% on Resale - Boston

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 10, 2013

Homeowners renovate for two basic reasons: to improve their home's resale value or their enjoyment of their house. The best home improvements, however, are ones that deliver on both objectives.

If you'll be among the many homeowners opting to improve, rather than move, you may be wondering what renovations are likely to give you the best balance of enhanced resale value and immediate enjoyment.

Kitchens

It makes sense that the room where most families spend the bulk of their time would be a popular remodel - and one that pays off big in terms of value and comfort. Even a minor kitchen remodel - costing about $21,000 - will return about 78% of its value on resale, according to Remodeling Magazine. How do you do a minor kitchen remodel? Refacing kitchen cabinets is the right place to start. Instead of replacing the kitchen cabinets, which costs tens of thousands of dollars, cabinet refacing uses the existing cabinets and involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts plus installing a veneer of new wood over the existing cabinets. This is usually done with your existing countertops in place if they are in good shape.

Baths

Whether you're tackling a major job that involves knocking out walls and changing fixtures, or just making cosmetic improvements like upgrading faucets, refacing vanities and cabinets and repainting, remodeling a bathroom goes straight to the heart of our craving for comfort. Americans view their baths as far more than a place to get clean and take care of other necessities. Even if you're not creating a home spa, improving the bathroom is sure to boost your home's resale value and increase your satisfaction with the room. Remodeling Magazine says the average bathroom remodel costs around $16,100 and returns up to 71% of that cost at the time of sale.

Reface Cabinets for Increased Home Value- Boston and RI

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 27, 2013

There are great ways to fix up your home while adding value to it. With the housing market picking up in Boston and Rhode Island, homeowners are trying to do just that.

If you want to increase the resale value of your home to put in on the market now, or in a few years, you can spend less money on the project and still reap the benefits.

The first remodeling project you start should always be the kitchen, it is the most important room in the house to upgrade if increased value is what you are looking for. Almost all potential buyers are attracted to the kitchen and it’s details like granite countertops, kitchen cabinets and appliances.

If you don’t want to partake in an entire kitchen remodeling project, which involves replacing the kitchen cabinets, and which eats up most of your budget, reface kitchen cabinets instead. Replacing kitchen cabinets can cost you 10’s of thousands of dollars and take several weeks to complete. Refacing kitchen cabinets costs a small fraction of that amount and will take from 2-4 DAYS to complete.

By refacing cabinets your kitchen project will be completed faster, and the results will be stunning. Add new granite countertops and you have a brand new kitchen that buyers will love. And of course, you can enjoy it too while you are still in your home.
