Best home renovations to squeeze in before winter
Our experts agree: If you’re going to focus on any room in the house, kitchens and bathrooms are good areas to start with. “These are certainly the areas where you’ll get the biggest return on your investment,” says real estate agent Karrie Gavin. One caveat, though: If you anticipate staying in your house for fewer than five years, opt for upgrading rather than a complete overhaul. “I rarely advise a seller to do a complete kitchen or bathroom remodel if you’re planning to sell it in the near future,” says Gavin. “It’s risky because you don’t know what the buyer will like. That’s why I typically recommend simple upgrades instead, like replacing worn-out benchtops or bathroom vanity, for example.”
