When you put your house on the market, it can be difficult to decide on the best way to allocate your home sale budget. You know you’ll need to cover your agent’s commission, inspection and insurance fees, and some essential home repairs, but what about renovations?
There’s no need to go overboard and give your kitchen or master bedroom a complete remodel. A couple of smaller projects, however, can produce a significant return on investment, bringing in more prospective buyers and higher value offers. Increase your property value with one of these profitable projects and reap the benefits when it comes time to close!
1.) Bathroom Refresh
The bathroom is crucial when it comes to selling your home. It needs to feel practical, hygienic, and relaxing. An outdated bathroom is one of the quickest ways to turn off prospective buyers! Investing in a minor renovation for your bathroom will increase your home appeal considerably.
Swap out old and grimy fixtures and amenities for new ones—and opt for energy efficient appliances if you can. Eco-friendly properties are huge now, and the bathroom is a great place to show off a few environmental features. Install fixtures that match in style to give the room a modern, cohesive look.
2.) Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors add a sophisticated yet homey quality to any space! In fact, they’re so effective at enhancing a room that they almost always have a 100% ROI at resale.
Hardwood floors convey the same feeling of luxury as a deluxe carpet without the hassle. They’re durable, easy to clean, and require very little maintenance. As an added bonus for you to flaunt to your buyers, they provide excellent natural insulation and sound absorption.
3.) Finished Basement
Increase the amount of usable space in your home by finishing your basement! Turning your basement into a multi-functional room offers potential buyers even more opportunity to imagine themselves in your place. Keep it open and well-lit to maintain a universal appeal.
You can leave a finished basement empty, but you might want to do a little staging ahead of your showings. Present it as an adaptable space with endless possibilities by displaying it as a contemporary home office or entertainment room. This will add a valuable layer of comfort to your home.
