There are a lot of small projects that you can do around the house that will help increase the resale value of your Barrie Home. Many of these smaller renovations will even increase the value of your home more than larger projects.

You’ll need to look at the return on your money for any projects that you plan. Obviously, if you have something in your home that is an eyesore, such as a worn-out kitchen floor, replacing it will not only add value to the resale value of the house but will also make for a quicker sale. At the Hocking Homes Team we only work with highly accredited contractors in the Barrie area and have been able to refer the best in the business to our clients who are looking to make a few home improvements before listing their Barrie home. Scott Heather, of SCH Home & Commercial Home Improvements, is a Barrie contractor who has proven to be the man for the job in many cases with both our buyers and sellers.
