Do you know that a few home improvements can create big returns when it comes to selling your house? Listing your house can be very stressful, but what's even more stressful is wondering how to get every last dollar out of it. On this episode of Northern Valley Vibes, I'm going to share the top three home improvement projects that will help your house sell for more. We’ll take to Paul from Paulis Incorporated to see some of these home improvements first hand. After all, the better your home shows, the more someone will pay for it.  

Home Improvements In The Basement 

One of the first rooms you should upgrade is the basement. This is an often underutilized space where you can a big bang for your buck when it comes to upgrades. Paul and his team finished a basement by adding a built-in wall entertainment unit as well as new flooring. Because of the higher moisture content in this lower room, vinyl pine flooring is a great option.  

Upgrading The Kitchen 

The kitchen is often the most expensive room in the house but is a space that gives you the largest returns. It’s a great idea to upgrade appliances, though they run the gamut in pricing. You can get a stove for a few hundred dollars up to $10,000. This same concept applies to your refrigerator, freezer, and any other type of appliance. 
Paul normally does a normal kitchen upgrade costing anywhere from $40,000-$100,000. This, of course, largely depends on how much his client wants to spend. Pricing can vary based on the appliances and finishes but will provide a great return on investment.  

Redoing The Master Bathroom 

A gorgeous new tub is the number one home improvement project that you must do to sell your house for top dollar. Create a master bathroom that looks like you could live in it, and you’re bound to get some amazing offers on your house. A master bathroom renovation can range anywhere from $10,000 to about $30,000 or $35,000, depending on the size and how custom you want to get.
