If you like projects with a bit of challenge, this is for you! Before you sign on the dotted line there are a few things you need to take care of first. What's your goal and how much do you want to spend? Here are a few ways to get the most return for your money!Image title


Look for Red Flags. Hire a home inspector to give your home a thorough inspection. If the problem sounds like a money gobbler, it probably is.

Check out the neighbors. Scope out the neighborhood. You don't want to upgrade too far above the neighborhood standard. Attend a few open houses in the area to examine the home interior.

Give Important Rooms Some TLC. Kitchen and bathroom remodels are high must haves on most buyers lists. Make it your goal to create bright, clean, family friendly rooms.

Paint Away. A big remodel most don't think about is a fresh paint job. Give the walls and trim and fresh coat. Typically neutral colors are most salable. The wall color can make a world of difference to a room.

Don't Forget the Little Things. It can be easy to only see the big picture, but its the little things that can make a world of difference. Inexpensive cosmetics like new switch plates, door knobs, toilet seats, cabinet handles, etc can make the big picture just a little more brighter.

Curb Appeal. This doesn't have to be a penny pincher. Clean, mowed yard, a couple colorful planters and a welcome mat can do great things to your fixer-upper!
