Whether you host an open house or guide potential buyers on private tours, your home and its amenities will be evaluated and even criticized. Here are a few tips to help you spruce up your property and improve the perceived value it makes on potential purchasers:
According to Remodeling Magazine, these items appeal to the widest range of buyers and return the most value to sellers.
- Kitchens. Adding new counters and cabinet tops, along with new appliances in the kitchen, is one of the best investments you can make. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and if yours needs work, buyers might not even consider it a contender.
- Baths. Enlarging a bath or adding a whirlpool or jacuzzi, along with making sure the space is updated, is a must have for most. Does it sound strange to market your home through the bath? Remember that people start and end their days there.
- Square footage. Adding a new story, knocking down walls, or enlarging your garage are among the most expensive projects, but they are generally very well received by buyers.
- Outdoors. Outdoor living is on most wish lists these days. Not having a deck or patio could get your home crossed off buyers’ lists.
