Increase Your Home’s Value

Now is the time to sell in Edmonton! The average selling price of a home has increased by 118.3% and the average amount of days on the market for a home is only 40 days. With numbers like that, why wait? 

Below is a recent review from a couple that sold and bought with Goodchild Realty:

“David was very accommodating and went above and beyond ensuring we were satisfied with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone! Thanks so much for all of your help with everything, it was great working with you!” - Jane and Peter


According to an article by Forbes, “With a few strategic home improvement projects, you can not only increase your quality of life in the near-term future, but also add tremendous property value when you’re ready to sell.”

Forbes describes 14 home upgrades that will boost property value, including faster broadband internet and energy-efficient equipment. Today, we are highlighting five of the 14 areas listed.

5 Upgrades To Increase Your Home’s Value

  1. Kitchen: moving.com said it well when they said, “The kitchen is the heart of the home.” Any upgrades will increase the value of your home, whether with the bigger items, like appliances, or the smaller changes, like cabinet repairs and new knobs/pulls. 

  2. Flooring: Updating the flooring can help rooms appear larger and modernize different spaces throughout the house.

  3. ‘Tiny Home’ Backyard Offices: According to Insider, “Tiny backyard offices could be the future of working from home.” Many people are buying or building offices in their backyards to accommodate this trend, while at the same time adding extra living space and value to the home.

  4. Garage Door: Upgrading our garage door not only helps with curb appeal but tells the potential buyer that the home is being cared for before they even step in the door.

  5. Everyday Hardware: What better way to modernize your home than by connecting items to WiFi? Or install some touchless systems, like automatic flush toilets, motion sensor taps, or automated lights.
