Remodeling in any market

Shopping for a new home can be equal parts exciting and daunting. But it’s just as important to make sure your current home is ready to list. Here are some tips that can help.

Make a positive first impression

Buyers often decide whether to look at your house before they even get out of the car. Little things like washing windows, repainting trim, planting flowers and fixing screens can make a big difference. For even more impact, you may want to consider larger projects like replacing siding or adding a patio or deck. The added value for these larger projects won't yield as high of a return on investment, but may help your house stand out from the rest. Weigh your options and ask your REALTOR® for advice before starting a big project.

Roll out the welcome mat

Make sure your entryway is inviting. Add a fresh coat of paint to your foyer or a wicker chair and table outside the door. For even more impact, replace old light fixtures and update the floor in the entryway.

Sparkle up that old bathroom

Remodeling an old bathroom can make a big impact. For very little money, you can add a new faucet to your sink, a new medicine cabinet on the wall, and even new paint or wallpaper. For a little more oomph, you can update the bathtub, add a double sink or re-tile the floor.

Add a second bathroom

The number of bathrooms is always a big sticking point for potential buyers, especially families with two or three children. Although adding a bathroom costs more than simply fixing up your old one, it also increases the value of your house more. Plus, having that second bathroom may help you sell your house faster.

Turn up the heat in the kitchen

Renovating an outdated kitchen is a great way to improve your home and its value. Focus on the basics: installing new flooring, adding a backsplash and a new coat of paint, re-facing existing cabinets, installing new counter tops, and possibly installing new appliances. These go a long way to making potential buyers feel right at home.
