Are you planning on selling your Toronto home this year? Do you know that by setting aside a few dollars to get your home ready to sell, you can increase the value of your home immensely?

Here are five things that you can do to increase the value of your Toronto home before you put it up for sale:

Choose wisely with kitchen renovations. Kitchens are expensive, and these renovations typically tie up the most money – they can be disastrous if done wrong. Hiring a designer for a kitchen renovation is your best bet.

Make sure your designs are timeless. Knowing what makes a design timeless isn’t something that comes naturally. However, choosing styles and fixtures that are universal and timeless – not necessarily ones suited to your own tastes only – will please more people.

Is it worth it to renovate your bathroom when the kitchen could use some work?

Do some research. Is it worth it to renovate your bathroom when the kitchen could use some work? Is it more worthwhile to put in new flooring, or install better windows? Determine which of these changes will give you a higher return on your investment by speaking to a real estate agent or an appraiser.

Do a good job. Poor renovations won’t get you anywhere. If you aren’t sure how to proceed with your renovations or remodelling, consult a professional. If you are on a limited budget, a new paint colour, decent lighting and a few accessories can make a huge difference for less dollars.


Adding An Extra Space Like a Shed of Guest House

If you don’t have the room or the money to add an extension to your home, you could always build an extra room that is separated from your house. Building a steel building in your backyard is the most effective way to do this. The steel will keep your things safe from the elements and intrusion, and it will also be fairly inexpensive to install. You may want to contact a local contractor to help you with this.

Avoid hidden surprises.

Avoid hidden surprises – easier said than done, right? If there are electrical issues or plumbing issues with your home, it is a much smarter move to put your energy into fixing these than doing cosmetic renovations. A buyer will see a home with good systems that passes a home inspection, rather than a complete fixer-upper that is worth less money.

These upgrades aren’t the only options you can explore to sell your home. You can speak with a professional Toronto real estate agent about staging your home to make sure that it looks your best to prospective buyers.
