When renovating your home, it’s smart to consider worthwhile investments which will improve your home’s resale value. REALTOR® Marcia Bergen offers expert advice on home renovations that count.


We have all heard that the kitchen is the heart of the home but it’s also a home renovation well worth the investment. Buyers who love to cook will pay a premium dollar for a well-planned and quality kitchen. I would suggest choosing finishes that are good quality. Spending more for quality countertops, custom cabinetry and appliances pays off when selling your home.


Home Renovations that Count Include BATHROOMs

Like kitchens, buyers appreciate a clean and fresh bathroom. Bathrooms, can be a major deterrent for buyers as they can be disruptive renovations to live through. Spending money to include tile finishes, heated floors and conveniences like deep tubs are all items that will add to resale value.



There are many great products on the market today such as vinyl plank, high end laminate and tons of tile to choose from. One important factor when selecting flooring for your home is quality. Do not include too many types of flooring throughout your home. Keeping your flooring types to a minimal will also add value to a buyer.

The Importance of Cohesive Home Renovations

This is one aspect of a home renovation that counts. You can actually hurt your resale value if the renovate does not offer cohesion. A buyer looking in a mid-century neighborhood generally is looking to purchase there because they prefer that particular style of home. When choosing kitchen, bathroom, flooring or colour choices I would highly recommend staying to the original design of the home. Updating a mid-century home to be cottage style, for one example, isn’t the best way to capture top dollar for your home. Most buyers looking for a mid-century home prefer the clean, modern lines of the original construction. When homeowners create a cohesive renovation that is true to the design of the home, I find that buyers appreciate the renovation that much more and are also generally willing to pay a premium for it.
