Renovate These Area’s to Sell!

If you’ve decided or are thinking about selling your home in the near future, you will likely want to sell it as quickly as possible and for the most amount of money.  One great way to do this is to invest and make renovations in these 3 areas of your home. 

Kitchen

An updated kitchen is a huge bonus for today’s home buyers. They want things like stainless steel appliances, granite or quartz countertops, a tile backsplash, updating flooring and nice cabinets. Our best advice for you here is to do this one a few years before you sell so you can enjoy it too and don’t break the bank. Focus on materials not a huge reconfiguration of the space. 

Bathroom

Clean and fresh is what today’s buyers want in bathrooms. But this is also an area where you can have a little fun with the renovation. A pop of color or wallpaper, an updated vanity and new light fixtures are easy ways to easily update the space. 

New Roof or Updated Mechanicals

Focus on the big ticket items that will give the buyer peace of mind when purchasing your home. They won’t mind doing a few updates on their own if they know they won’t have to worry about things like a new roof, furnace or AC. 

Renovations go a long way in helping your home sell more quickly. As we’ve mentioned in a recent blog post, most buyers today aren’t looking for a fixer upper, they want to move right in and enjoy the many benefits of owning a home. 

If you plan accordingly you can reap the benefits of these renovations and maybe even enjoy them a little before you move. Just be sure you don’t spend more than what you can get out of your home when you sell it.
