ATLANTA, GA, March 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Craftmark's specialists in kitchen countertops in Atlanta know that home renovations are on the rise. It is estimated that American homeowners spent $130 billion on upgrades and renovations last year. Thanks to rising property values, homeowners have more available equity with which to finance a variety of remodeling projects throughout their home.
If you are considering any remodeling projects but don't know which one to do first, use these tips to get your home renovations underway.
Choosing the Right Renovation Project
When deciding which part of your home to renovate first, you have many options depending on your reason for remodeling. If you are investing in home improvements for resale value then one of the most important remodeling projects is the kitchen. By refacing cabinets, adding natural stone countertops and updating appliances you can raise the value of a home significantly. Even if you are planning renovations in your home as a long-term investment for your family, the kitchen is a focal point in many homes and is a great place to start remodeling.
Other important areas of the home to consider remodeling are bathrooms, especially a master bathroom. Most prospective home buyers pay special attention to the kitchen and master bedroom when considering a property. If you are selling a home or planning to sell some time in the future you will likely recoup any money you put into upgrading your kitchen and bathroom by being able to ask, and get, a higher price for your house.
Make Your Renovation Projects Pay Off
When choosing a remodeling project, it is important to note that not all remodeling jobs yield the same results in terms of the actual value of your home. For instance, remodeling your kitchen with Atlanta granite countertops has a higher return on investment than renovations on a room that is going to be used less.
If your prime motivation for renovating is to sell the house, stick to upgrades that are more modest both in terms of scope and cost. Following this technique will make it easier for you to recover your investment down the road. Whatever renovations you decide to take on, be careful that they do not price your house out of the neighborhood. Trying to sell a $700,000 home in an area where the average house costs half that price will not be easy.
Make sure your upgrade and renovation projects fit not only your budget and current lifestyle, but your future plans for your life and house as well.
