As a realtor I know a few things about selling homes. One of the best ways to do so is to increase the value and appeal of your home.
Many people think that best way to do this is to increase the curb appeal. Sure the outside of a home matters, but itís the inside of a home that makes people warm and fuzzy.
Depending on where your home is located has a huge part of its worth.
But no matter where your home is located, there are two things you can do to increase the re-sale value of your home.
What are they?
1 Ė Countertops
Countertops matter when re-selling your home. Especially when it comes to the home buyer who loves to entertain in the kitchen.
Donít cheap out though and choose laminate though and spend all your money on elegant doors and crown moldings.
Granite, quartz or marble countertops have the best durability, value, look and feel.

2 Ė Hardwood Floors
People also cheap out on their flooring during renovations to sell their home. They put down laminate floors to make it look nice and clean. I donít know about you but laminate looks cheap and feels even cheaper.
Itís not a great way to impress someone who might buy your home.
Instead go with hardwood. Hardwood is costly but it sure does it attract and impress potential buyers.
If you own a older home with hardwood flooring already, you can always update them by having them refinished and stained in a dark color or whatever trend is in.
Woodfellow Flooring provides hardwood floor refinishing in Calgary if you need their services.
These two ways to increase the value of your home are indeed pricey. But I like to call them healthy investments.
