When you hear the word “renovation,” it’s easy to think that you need to dive into a major home improvement project. But did you know that sometimes the smallest project can create the best return on investment (ROI)? Before you decide to gut and redo your entire home, explore some simpler options. A change of a fixture or a fresh coat of paint can go a long way!


Fixing up your yard is one of the best ways to set yourself up for success when selling your home. No matter your style preference, a well-maintained and attractive yard can yield as much as 100% ROI! As we move into the spring season, look for gardening trends that fit your ideal home image, and you’ll be able to boost your curb appeal in no time.

Minor Bathroom Remodel

If you’re thinking of giving your bathroom a brand-new look, start with smaller changes. Minor bathroom remodels can see up to 102% average ROI, versus a major bathroom remodel which will see around 93%. If the bones of your bathroom are good, give your space a facelift with new fixtures, redone flooring or a fresh coat of paint! Not only are these projects relatively inexpensive, but they are simpler tasks that homeowners can manage on their own, making a minor bathroom remodel much easier to manage.

Minor Kitchen Remodel

Focus on cosmetic changes in your kitchen rather than anything structural to see the biggest benefit. Been dreaming of getting marble counters but didn’t know when would be a good time? Changing your counters is the perfect way to give your kitchen a fresh look without breaking the bank! Giving the busiest room in your home a little bit of love can get you an average of 98.5% ROI when you sell, and it is a far quicker turnaround than a full remodel would be.

No matter the size of the remodel, giving your home a fresh look can be an intimidating task. However, if you’re looking to see your home reach its full potential when you sell it, showing a little bit of love here and there can go a long way. Play around with the current aesthetic of your home by seeing what smaller aspects you can bring into this year’s trends. Not only will you be pleased with the quick timeline of the project, but your pockets are sure to be happy, too.
