Kari Calder a Trusted Saskatoon Realtor and a Saskatoon Real Estate expert shares a tip on how to guarantee an increase in your home’s value

The decision to purchase your home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and will also be one of your largest investments. Done right, it can also be one of the most exciting and fulfilling times in your life! Kari Calder a saskatoon Realtor with Century 21 Fusion is there to help you through the process, and provide you and your family with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have a realtor working with your best interests in mind.


The goal of virtually every buyer out there is to buy a home that will increase in value. Nobody wants a house that turns out to be a money pit. How can you ensure that the home will increase in value? Here are a few things to look for that will ensure that your home purchase is a good solid investment.


Anyone in the real estate industry will tell you the 3 most important things in real estate are location, location, location. If you want your home to appreciate in value, you have to think about the neighbourhood you’re choosing. You can choose many things about a home but location just isn’t one of them. Also be weary of numerous for sale signs in the area. Multiple houses for sale within a small area is usually a clear sign that you should consider looking elsewhere.


The average square footage of a home has risen from less than 1,000 sq ft in 1950 to nearly 2,600 in 2013. Bigger isn’t always better. It’s better to be the smallest home on the block because then you leave yourself more room to build equity. Buy the least expensive house in the best neighbourhood you can afford will ensure an increase in value.


Most people know that curb appeal is important when selling a home but what if the sellers overlooked that key piece of info. As a buyer, don’t overlook the house that may be hiding behind overgrown hedges. If you’re willing to do the work yourself, you may just find a great deal that has been hiding.


You may be drawn to a home that’s been nicely upgraded but don’t run from one that is outdated. As long as the bones of a house are good, consider buying one that needs cosmetic work done to give a home an instant lift in value.


Always get a home inspection to asses a home’s condition. To avoid regretting your purchase always make sure you have a home inspection prior to completing the sale to ensure that the structure and the mechanical of the home are in great shape and won’t eat up any profit you might make.


Look for an expert negotiator to make the smartest home purchase. Hiring an agent, like myself, who will put your best interests first is a valuable one. Purchasing a home that’s undervalue and that essentially increase in value when you take possession is one of the best ways to ensure that your home’s value will increase.
