Add value to your Calgary abode with these 6 home improvement pro tips
Selling your house? There are many ways you can increase its market value, but beware: in the minds of Calgary homebuyers, not all renovations are created equal. For the best return on your investment, consider making the following upgrades.
1. Upgrade the bathrooms
Giving your bathrooms a makeover is a surefire way to impress prospective buyers. Create the illusion of extra space by putting in glass shower enclosures or swapping out bulky counters for more streamlined models. Refresh the décor of each bathroom (don’t forget the powder rooms!) with some elegant details, like high-end faucets or designer showerheads, to catch the attention of discerning house-hunters.

2. Update the flooring
In a nutshell: hardwood, laminate and vinyl plank are in, carpet is way out. Replace that wall-to-wall shag with an easy-to-maintain solid flooring option, or add a touch of luxury to certain key areas by installing heated tiles in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or entrance.
3. Refresh the kitchen
The kitchen still reigns supreme in the real estate world. But if you’re looking to sell, there’s no need for you to tear yours down and start from scratch. Have a modest budget? No worries: some new hardware, new tile backsplash, new sink & tap or even quartz or granite countertops, and/or upgrading the floor. In any case, remodelling your Calgary kitchen is sure to help your house stand out in a tough market.
4. Redo the basement
In Calgary, basement renovations are among the best investments you can make when it comes to increasing the resale value of a property. If you have an unfinished basement, now would be an excellent time to transform it into a a large and welcoming living space and add much more living space to the house!
5. Change the doors and trim
Bring your interior from dated to dazzling by installing new profiled doors and updating to a modern wider trim. You can also significantly improve your home’s curb appeal by replacing the front door. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference!
6. Paint the walls
You may not notice those scratches, chips and marks on the walls anymore, but prospective buyers definitely will. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in making your home more enticing. Remember: a well-maintained property is sure to sell for a higher price than one that feels shabby or neglected.
