If you’re considering selling your home or simply trying to add value for the time you do decide to sell, it’s not only important to update your home, but update it in the RIGHT ways. We understand that it’s important to seller’s to avoid wasting both their money and efforts by putting in updates that aren’t important to today’s buyers. And so if you’re unsure where to begin in terms of updates, we’ve compiled a solid list to get you started.
If done right, landscaping can bring at or above 100% return on investment. And if you can do it yourself, you’re in even better shape when it comes to bringing you the value that you’re looking for. No need to go crazy with a pool and helicopter pad either – Just freshen up the front with some planfully decorative flowerbeds and fresh mulch.
New appliances go a long way with homebuyers and can bring solid value to your home. Having newer stainless steel appliances can give a quick facelift to any kitchen. Updated cabinetry and even granite countertops rank high on 2020 buyers’ list as well! Remember that while a full remodel might be a great option for you, you may not don’t need to go that far. Perhaps consider painting your older cabinets instead of purchasing new ones. Whatever you do, don’t invest a ton of time and money until you talk with one of our agents to determine homebuyer trends.
If you’re home only has one bath, adding an additional bath might be a really lucrative option for you. But if that’s not in the cards, consider installing a new laminate tile flooring for an updated look and feel. Replacing the tub or putting in a new vanity will do the trick as well.
If you’ve still got shag carpet, it’s probably time for some updated flooring. Feel free to stick with new carpeting on stairs and bedrooms, but updated wood/laminate/vinyl flooring in bathrooms, kitchens, and living areas is a safe choice.
Not sure where to start? That’s where we can come in! Give us a call today and we’d be happy to schedule a walk through to discuss the best updates for you that will bring the most value in today’s market.
As always, it’s our goal to bring you exceptional opportunities and experiences – Every time!
