You’re ready to put the house up for sale but don’t forget to add some pizzazz by updating a few things. A fresh coat of paint here, a new appliance there, and a bonus add-on give the house a brand-new look that buyers love. The most important areas to focus on are the bathrooms, kitchen, and outside. Below are some important updates to make before selling your house:
Not every update is a major remodel. Replacing the caulk around the bathtub is a minor remodel that makes a huge impact. Replacing an old, worn out vanity with a new modern one can make all the difference in a bathroom without breaking the bank. For bathrooms in need of bigger remodeling jobs, the cost of repairs and new fixtures is daunting, but the value increases to 102% of the cost. Replace a dingy tub that is beyond scrubbing with a bright new tub and surround. Don’t forget to add a touch of paint to the walls to complete the look.
Kitchens are one of the most used and abused rooms in a house. Stoves, refrigerators, and cabinets take a beating. Before the for sale sign gets planted in the yard, freshen up the kitchen with a few updates. Cabinets that are in good shape benefit from a good sanding and new finish. Appliances need replaced with newer models as well, and a retouched and impeccable back-splash is a must.
When a buyer pulls into the driveway, they are already deciding if this is their dream home or not. How the house looks from the road is very important, it is the first thing they see when they walk up to the home and the last thing they see before they leave. Doors and window frames need repainted. Hardware stores have convenient paint chips that make choosing the perfect color a cinch, so grab a handful of your favorites and get started.
