When making improvements to your home with the intent to sell soon, cost vs. value should be the filter you use in choices you make. Cost vs. value is the actual cost you pay for an improvement vs. what you can sell it for later.
While as a rule kitchens and baths return the most, you can spend too much if your intent is strictly to sell. Options that are highly customized may be off-putting to buyers, or entirely unappealing. An extremely modern wall-hung toilet with a metallic finish can run $3,000 plus installation when a modern $1,000 toilet in white could be a little less dramatic and net considerably more from the ultimate sale.
By the same token, you might not be as aggressive to sell your home once you get to enjoy the improvements to your living space.
Remodeling magazine reports in its annual Cost vs. Value issue that a kitchen facelift can return higher dividends than a full redesign. That includes painting, new countertop and backsplash, plus new appliances and replacement light fixtures. The key to spending less is spending it wisely. Product selection is key.
