When you’re looking to flip a home, weighing the cost and return of each remodeling project is essential in ensuring that you’re able to profit as much as possible. Below, we’ll discuss our favorite remodeling projects to consider before flipping a home. 

1. Update the Garage and Front Door

As they say, you only have one chance to make a first impression. Curb appeal is as important as the inside of a home, and replacing a garage door that’s outdated or giving your front door a fresh coat of paint will instantly make your home more attractive to potential buyers before they even step foot in the door. Better yet, these projects are relatively inexpensive and simple. 

2. Tend to the Siding 

You may not need to even fully replace the siding of your home to enhance its curb appeal. In many instances, a good power wash will do the trick just as well. However, if your siding is in need of repair, it’s good to tackle before putting your home on the market, as it’s less expensive than new roofing and you’re likely to get a positive return on the project. 

3. Upgrade the Flooring

Flooring is a remodeling project that pays for itself very quickly. If your home has carpeting, changing to a shiny new hardwood floor will instantly update the space and make it more attractive to buyers. Furthermore, there are options including engineered or laminate wood that you can use instead of hardwood to save money while achieving the same look. 

4. Update the Bathrooms

Bathrooms are undoubtedly an important factor in a home buyer’s decision. Bathroom remodels almost always have high ROI, and there are several levels to which you can tackle the project. If stripping the bathroom and remodeling from scratch aren’t in your budget, simple fixes such as a fresh coat of paint on the cabinets, updated lighting, or switching out the fixtures can instantly make the space feel more luxurious and appealing. 

5. Highlight Aging in Place Features

Aging in place features include everything from a first-floor bedroom to a handy handrail in the shower. These features will be especially lucrative if you’re selling in a neighborhood with a middle-aged population who are likely looking for the home that they’ll retire in. 

6. Add a Deck

A deck project will almost always bring you a high ROI without costing you too much upfront. Adding a new deck, especially in warm areas, will immediately make the backyard more attractive to homebuyers who value the outdoors or are looking to entertain. Better yet, this project can be completed with little disruption to your home. 

7. Add White Paint

A fresh coat of white paint on any areas that need it will instantly make space feel brighter, more open, and more modern. A white canvas is a safe bet for a huge variety of home buyers, and it also photographs very well. 

Flipping a home is a great and exciting way to earn extra income. With any of these remodeling projects, you’re sure to get a positive return on your investment and be able to profit from your property quite quickly.
