Best Home Renovation Projects to Get Higher Resale Value

When undergoing any home remodel project, making a smart investment should always be under consideration. The design aspect of your remodel will likely be your first priority, especially if you’re planning on staying in the house you’re currently living in long-term. However, resale value should also be considered due to unforeseen circumstances like relocation for a job change or a change of heart.

Upgrades to your home should be well thought out and talked through with a professional to ensure you’re making the best decision for your family. The Center Island Contracting team can help you make informed decisions about any home renovation project, whether it’s a bathroom remodel, kitchen remodel or a basement conversion.

Below are the best home renovation projects for a higher resale value.

Adding Square Footage

More square footage is always a selling point with home buyers. If you want to add on to your home for extra living space, whether through a dormer, extension or addition, you won’t be alone in your desire for more room. In fact, one of the top reasons families have been moving during the Coronavirus pandemic is the need for more space.


Finishing your basement goes right along with adding more space to your home. If you have an unfinished basement, chances are your intentions when buying the home were to finish it. When that time comes, know that it’s a smart investment and will add money to your selling price.

Open Floor Plan

An open floor plan is the most functional for families and can make any home look larger than it is. Knocking down walls to create a more open floor plan is a great choice for a home remodel project for both you and potential buyers down the road.

Exterior Upgrades

Exterior upgrades such as updated siding, a porch addition or even a new coat of paint can boost the curb appeal of your home. Curb appeal is the first thing people see when looking at homes, so any exterior upgrade is a worthwhile investment.

Kitchen or Bathroom Remodel

Kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most popular home renovations because they are two of the most used rooms in the home. Updated kitchens and bathrooms are high on the wish list for home buyers, making any kitchen or bathroom remodel, large or small, a smart investment.
