If you're looking to renovate your home to improve its value, the kitchen and bathroom are great places to start.
Are you thinking of selling in the spring? You might want to consider doing a few renovations and upgrades to help boost your profits. If so, now is the perfect time to settle those plans-while winter seems to last forever, it's only four months until the spring real estate market roars back to life.
The value of a home is almost never determined solely by its characteristics and qualities; a lot depends on the area in which you are selling and what your neighbors' houses are like.  According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada , the renovations with the highest return on investment are the kitchen and bathroom. If you're going to tackle these jobs, think about the preferences of modern home buyers and weigh the costs. If you decide to tackle repairs and renovations on your own, poor workmanship can do your sale more harm than good-especially when it comes to big-ticket items  like electrical, plumbing and gas lines.
Appeal to the masses when you're deciding on the finished look for your renovations-especially the permanent ones such as backsplashes , cabinetry and bathroom tile-your safest bet for a timely sale is to keep colours and patterns fairly neutral.
