Maintaining your home is the most important thing you can do to ensure your home retains its value. Although it will take some effort on your part, making timely and necessary home improvements will make the home more comfortable for you and your family while adding to the property value.

Use this worksheet to evaluate whether it’s time for you to do some home improvement projects.

  1. Go outside to the street and look at your property. Write down any areas that you notice are not becoming to your property and need attention.
  2. Document here what you plan to do to each of these areas to increase your home’s value.
  3. Since the kitchen is the most important room of the house, how does your kitchen look? What changes, if any, would you like to make to each of these aspects of your kitchen?
    • Cabinets
    • Flooring
    • Countertops
    • Lighting
  4. Jot down two changes you can make to your kitchen to make it more marketable.
  5. In your bathroom(s), how do the cabinet, sink, countertop, and bathtub look? Do you need to change or remodel any of these elements? If so, what will you do? 
  6. Record two things you can do to spruce up your bathroom without spending a lot of cash.
  7. Evaluate your home’s lighting. Do you have rooms that don’t have enough light? What about the rooms where you’ve overdone the lighting? What will you do to change the lighting? Consider simple fixes, too, like changing lamps or putting in a lower wattage light bulb.
  8. Have you ever had your insulation level evaluated? If so, when? Have at least 2 experts come out and check out your insulation to see if your home needs more to maintain lower heating and cooling costs. Also, use this space to record names and numbers of insulation experts to call.
  9. Looking at each room in your home, how do the walls appear? Are they marked up, faded, or even peeling? Do a walkthrough now to determine which rooms need to be painted. The good news is that paint is an inexpensive way to bring out the best in your home.

Your home is truly your castle. Protect your precious investment by periodically doing proper home improvements.
