Your kids are growing up, and at some point, you won’t need all this space. Over the next few years, you want to take the time and invest the money to fix your house up to get it ready to be sold. You need top dollar, so what home renovation projects should you invest in to get top dollar? Below are four projects that will pay you back when it does come time to sell.

1. Kitchen

You probably already know kitchen renovations are the best place to increase the value of your home. Why? The person who buys your house is looking for specific upgrades like granite and stainless steel. Investing in just those two elements will increase the value of your home. The more you do in the kitchen, the more you get back.

2. Bathrooms

Fixing up those two bathrooms will cost you a little bit of money but earn you back much more. Bathroom improvements are a great place to spend money to increase the value of your home. You are likely to get back your investment.

3. Roof

If your roof is on the verge of being declared too old for your house, you may be forced to replace it as part of the sale. If you have the money to replace your roof before you list the home, do it. You might not get back all the money you spent, but you will get back some. Plus it is an excellent selling feature to say the roof was replaced within the last year.

4. Landscaping

The curb appeal of your home is essential no matter what, but especially when you’re trying to sell it. Replacing grass or just creating a clean and inviting yard will pay you back in the long run.

The housing market is getting more and more competitive. With home builders offering incentives, making your existing home look attractive to prospective buyers is more important than ever. Doing some necessary home renovations will add value to your home. Do them early enough that you too can enjoy them.
