Sellers in the Atlanta real estate market face some stiff competition today. To make their home stand out from the rest, some homeowners consider home improvement to increase home value. However, not all home projects are created equal to Atlanta real estate shoppers. We have five home improvements that could really pay off when it comes time to sell your house.

Landscaping – Your curb appeal is the first impression potential buyers have of your home. Replacing a dead lawn or investing in some attractive plants and flowers may go far in attracting more potential buyers. Professional landscaping may even be a good value if you have a particularly challenging piece of property to spruce up.

Kitchens – The heartbeat of the home is often the room that makes or breaks a sale. Kitchens should be bright, airy and completely updated. If yours is not, this might be a place to invest your home improvement dollars if you want to get top dollar when you sell your house.

Bathrooms – The number of bathrooms is just as important as the appearance. If your house only sports a single bath, you might consider adding a second somewhere in your home. Bathrooms cost relatively little to add and update, versus the value they can bring your house.

Light – Light, open floor plans are in big demand with the Atlanta real estate market today. If you live in an older home with small, dark rooms, consider knocking down a wall or adding French doors to bring in extra light. A professional window cleaning prior to putting your home on the market will also make a difference in how effectively your home sparkles from the inside out.

Storage – Today's home buyer is looking for a home that can adequately store their many possessions, so closet and storage space is an absolute must. If your closets are small, consider the addition of organizers to maximize the space. Adding a closet to a home office or basement is also a good way to increase storage options – and your home's value.

Spending money on home improvements can be a good way to increase the value of your Atlanta real estate. These five improvements have been shown to be some of the best if you want to get top dollar for your Georgia home.
