Renovating your kitchen is pretty much guaranteeing that you will increase your home value. Kitchens are so important to buyers because this is where a lot of time is spent in the home. It won't go unnoticed if you've spent the time, money, and effort to improve this area. Upgrades to consider: granite countertops, hardwood or tile flooring, high-end appliances, undermount sink, adding an island. While kitchen renovations are generally expensive, they are certain to make a huge impact.
Right up there with the kitchen, bathroom remodels will give you a high return on your investment. Upgrades to consider: new tile flooring, new fixtures, double sinks, adding a walk-in shower. Tip: If you only have one bathroom, it would probably be wiser to spend your money on adding a second bathroom rather than remodeling the one that you have.
First impressions are everything! You want a buyer to feel welcome walking into your home. Upgrades to consider: a manicured garden with attractive plants, adding a front porch/portico/back deck, new mailbox, new front door.
New Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood flooring is very popular with buyers, especially in the main living areas. If your existing wood floors are worn, consider having them sanded and resealed. Or if they are pretty beaten up, consider replacing them altogether.
Adding a Bedroom
Naturally, a four-bedroom home will call for a higher sales price than a three-bedroom home, even if the square footage is the same. If you have a large bedroom, you could consider dividing it into two smaller bedrooms - just be sure they aren't too small after dividing. Or, you could even convert an upstairs bonus room into a bedroom.
Those are just a few ideas on upgrades you could make to boost your home's appeal to buyers. And after you make your improvements, who knows? You may find yourself happy where you are and not ready to move. But if you are still looking to move on, give us a call. The Williams Team is here to help you make your real estate dreams come true!
