Speaking about homes, when owners have plans of renovating their dwellings, the good thing to keep in mind is that home upgrade should also increase the value of the house. Here is a link to a blog, where they speak a lot of kitchen improvement that helps increase house value.
From my experience, how kitchen looks is a important point in deciding whether or not buy this house. New cabinetry, stainless steel appliances add more purchasing power.
Another thing is to professionally stage the home. Well put furniture can make the space visually more appealing to a potential buyer.
Invest in laundry and bathroom renovation. If a bathroom is small, go for floating vanity to add more visual space and light painting.
Pot lights on the first floor is a good choice too. They not only give more light, but they look beautiful and its better to install LED potlights over conventional.
Having your house professionally cleaned is another thing to remember. I had cases when a buyer loved a house, everything in it, but was thrown away from giving an offer due to smelly and far from clean rooms
