How do you make a small space look bigger? Knock down some walls and open it up! Homes with open floor plans appreciate 7.4% a year.  The great thing about an open plan is its flexibility. People of all ages enjoy having a larger space for entertaining. Parents can safely watch their 3-year-old play while preparing a meal in the kitchen area. Older people who have mobility issues find it easier with fewer twisting corridors to navigate.

And to bridge the indoor and outdoor spaces, a patio is also a worthwhile investment. Homes with a patio appreciate 6.8% a year.

Some HGTV bywords, like stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, have surprisingly little impact on price appreciation—3% and 2.5% respectively. Yet, they do create more interest among buyers and help your home sell faster.
