18 Feb Remodeling Projects Before You Sell Your Home
Small upgrades for your home can make it easier to find a buyer for your house.
Getting your home ready to sell may be time consuming, especially if the home is old and needs considerable renovation before it is put up for sale. Real estate experts believe that remodeling a home can make it easy to find buyers who are ready to pay a good price for the property. However, carefully evaluate various home remodeling options, the value they offer, the costs involved, and the expected rate of return before deciding to make an investment.
Kitchen Remodeling Projects
A worn out kitchen may turn a potential buyer. It is important to upgrade your kitchen before listing your home. However, a luxury kitchen renovation will cost you a fortune and not pay you back sufficiently. Select a midrange upgrade such as replacing countertop or cabinets.
Bathroom Remodeling Projects
House hunters do not like homes with dark, dingy, and grungy bathrooms. In case your bathroom needs some serious overhaul, consider upgrading the cabinets, replacing tiles and light fixtures, and adding shower doors and new window treatments.
Lighting, Exterior, and Landscaping Upgrades
If you have not changed the lights in your home in the last few years, then consider adding modern and attractive light fixtures that will give a whole new look to your home. Ambient lighting, LED lighting, and task lighting do not cost much, but can make a huge difference to your home’s appeal.
Vinyl siding or painting the existing wood siding can improve the curb appeal of your home considerably. Choose neutral colors that appeal to an average buyer. How your home looks from the outside can make or break a first impression. Unkempt lawns and overgrown trees may turn potential buyers off no matter how good the interior of the house is. Trim the lawn, plant new shrubs or trees, create a fresh flower garden, and add landscape lighting.
A fresh coat of paint can give a new lease of life to your walls. If the wallpaper is peeling or has become dirty, remove and replace it. Choose neutral and subtle colors. Dirty and dated carpeting can be a huge turn off. Replace it with tile or hardwood.
Deck or Patio Room Upgrades
A potential buyer may be willing to pay a higher price for a home with an outdoor living area such as a patio or a deck. A patio room may call for a considerable investment, but it certainly offers a great return on investment. So, if you can afford it, you should consider adding an interesting and functional outdoor space to the home.
