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.

Smaller projects are usually done with precision care and show the efforts of the workmanship involved. When a larger project, such as an addition is involved, the workmanship can be much sloppier so it is important to hire a trusted contractor who will do a thorough job verses trying to go at it alone. It is not only the change that will help increase the value of your  home, but how well it is done and the quality of the work.
Here are some of the best renovations you can do on your home to increase its resale value.

-Bathroom updates.

-Small kitchen renovations.

-Add new siding.

-Replace old windows with new vinyl ones.

-Adding a backyard deck

If you are not willing to take on any sort of renovation, large or small, one of the best and easiest changes you can make is to replace your front door with a new one, especially if the old door is showing signs of wear. Another change that may be worth your while is to replace your garage door. Both of these changes will have an immediate effect on the exterior look of your Barrie home and a new front door will also help insulate the house better.

If you have any questions about renovations you can do on your home to help increase its value, contact the Hocking Homes Team, and we will be able to give you advice if you are thinking about selling. We can also give you an idea about other homes in the Barrie area and what homeowners have done that have successfully helped them with the sale of their home.
