Increase Your Home’s Value With A Remodel
Whether you need a bigger home for a growing family or relocating for another job, you may find that it is time to sell the house you once called home. However, before you put up the ‘For Sale’ sign, you may want to do a little remodeling to get a little more bang for your buck.
Why should I remodel the house if I’m not going to live here much longer?
On the outside it might seem strange to put time and energy into a house you are planning to say farewell too. Yet, you would be amazed at what a little remodel can really increase your home’s value or how it can more easily attract potential buyers.
Updating Your Curb Appeal
The ‘curb appeal’ of your home refers to its exterior. This not only includes the outside of the house itself, but also the yard, the driveway, mailbox, porch, and so on around your home. Without curb appeal, your potential buyers may turn your house down before they even get inside.
Still, this upgrade does not have to be an expensive one to get their attention. Doing little things like cleaning up the yard, planting some flowers, fixing the fence, replacing the mailbox or buying new house numbers are all wonderful ways to give your curb its appeal.
Fixing Up The Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most important features of the house so if yours is lacking, you could lose a buyer or find yourself lowering the price. Again, you do not need to spend your entire bank account trying to upgrade the kitchen. Try to focus on any problem areas like a worn out floor or a leaky faucet and get to work. Even a nice coat of paint can make your tired kitchen look brand new again!
However, if you do have a little extra money to put into the remodel, try upgrading the appliance with energy efficient ones. These will make you very appealing to energy conscious buyers and its better for the environment too.
Sprucing Up The Bathroom
The only room that is arguably more important than the kitchen is the bathroom. Nothing really frightens a potential buyer away like spotting a grungy looking bathroom. So aside from getting it deep cleaned by the professionals, try upgrading the medicine cabinet, replacing the light fixtures, and replacing the tiles.
Additionally, if there are any plumbing issues with your bathroom, you will want to get them fixed up first. A leaky faucet can spell out problems that your potential buyers will not be too eager to deal with.
