KITCHEN and BATH Makeovers Done Right (NC)—Updated kitchens and baths are a key draw for homebuyers. They also rank high in return on investment at resale, according to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, who suggests a potential return of 75 to 100 per cent for kitchen and bathroom renovations. This can translate to an added $22,500 to $30,000 on the resale value of your home. For maximum return on investment, it is important to ensure your upgrades are in keeping with the value of homes in your neighbourhood. “I tell people to resist the impulse to over-renovate,” says Sandra Webb, a senior executive at Royal LePage Canada. “Know the price trends in your neighbourhood and visit a few open houses to see what others in your area are doing. Going overboard on your renovation means you put your investment at risk.” According to Remodeling magazine’s 2010-11 cost versus value report, replacement projects have

performed better in resale value than other types of remodeling projects, partly because costs are lower to begin with. The U.S. magazine’s report cites the national average for a minor kitchen remodel at $21,695 nationally. A sample remodel at this cost includes replacing cabinet fronts, flooring, laminate countertops and oven and cook top; installing mid-priced sink and faucet; adding backsplash and repainting. The U.S. national average for a mid-range bathroom remodel was $16,634, which included replacing fixtures, installing a porcelain-on-steel tub, new shower and ceramic tile flooring.

the resale value of your home. However, Webb points out that an amateur renovation can take away from the value of a home, so be sure to call in a professional when the job is beyond the scope and skills of the homeowner. Concentrating on changing one or two elements can make a huge difference in its appeal to you and a potential buyer. Choose your projects wisely and make sure your renovation is in keeping with the price range of homes in your neighbourhood.

Homeowners fixing to sell should lean toward replacement, rather than total renovation. Re-facing cabinets, changing door and draw pulls, replacing flooring, sinks, faucets and countertops, along with a fresh coat of paint, can go a long way in boosting

Go green without going in the red (NC)—Doing your part for the environment doesn’t mean you have to renovate your home and sell the family car. Incorporate these small changes into your daily life and you’ll see how easy—and affordable—it can be: 1 Unplug inactive appliances—Not using your laptop? Is your coffeemaker standing at the ready? If you leave your appliances plugged in when you’re not using them you’re a victim of ‘phantom power’. When inactive, electronic appliances that are left plugged in suck energy from your home and can account for up to 20 per cent of your total in-home power use. The worst offenders? DVD players, phone chargers, nightlights, printers and laptop chargers. 2 Consider your options on-the-go—When you’re onthe-go, opt for a bottle made with plant-based materi-

als. Dasani water now offers PlantBottle packaging, which uses up to 30 per cent plant-based materials, reducing the amount of non-renewable resources required for production. It is also 100% recyclable. 3 Turn down the thermostat—Just because temperatures are dropping outside doesn’t mean you have to make your home tropical. Turning your thermostat down by 2 degrees can decrease your heating bill by up to 10 per cent. So turn down the heat and put on a sweater, chances are you won’t even notice the difference. 4 Cook in bulk—Fall is the perfect time to start cooking your meals in bulk. Preparing and saving larger quantities of hearty meals like stews, chilis, and soups will provide you with valuable energy savings and save time as well.
