Getting Started on your Renovation

Give yourself enough time to plan properly. Follow our newsletter over the next couple months for tips on planning and executing your renovation.

Check out November’s newsletter for the first step!

Step 2: Look into getting the biggest bang from your buck

  • A Real Estate Appraiser will be able to determine how to get the biggest payback on your investment by establishing the current value of your home and of comparable homes in your area. Having a professional appraiser will help you decide on the types of renovations that will give you the greatest return.
  • Consider a pre-renovation home inspection to evaluate the overall condition of your home and to set priorities for current and future renovations. An independent home inspector can help identify repair work and equipment replacement that may be needed.
  • Return on Investment- It’s important to not eliminate options for potential future buyers. Plan your project carefully to ensure you are making a wise financial decision. Below are some renovations that will give you the most bang for your buck:
    • An outdoor kitchen addition, if you do it right, is between 150-200%
    • A kitchen renovation – 72%
    • Bathroom renovation – 68%
    • Basement renovation – 49%
    • Construct a garage – 70%

Stay tuned…


We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas holiday and a very Happy New Year!
