Remodeling Projects That Prospective Buyers Desire
By: First Weber, Inc.
Cabinets take up a large portion of your kitchen and can look run down or get damaged over time. Sanding down your cabinetry, giving them a fresh coat of paint and adding new hardware will take a little extra effort, but is a cost-effective update that will be worth it in the long run.
If it's within your budget, consider replacing the cabinets completely. If your countertops are starting to show their age you should think about upgrading to a material like granite or quartz that will resist heat, scratches, and stains. Stone will ultimately last longer than laminate, which will save you money in the long run.
Bathrooms are often crying out for a remodel and can be a selling point of a home. At the very least, consider redoing the caulking and updating fixtures like cabinet hardware, faucets, and shower heads. These are inexpensive upgrades that will make an immediate visual impact. Redoing or replacing the vanity to add more counter space or storage space is always a good idea as well.
One of the first things a potential buyer will notice upon viewing your property is the flooring. While this isn't typically a budget project, updated flooring will certainly add value to your home and can make a big improvement on the overall looks of your home. Laminate, tile, or wood flooring are more convenient and easier to clean than carpet, though some people do prefer to have carpet in certain rooms, like the primary bedroom. Freshening up the materials on the floor can take your home to the next level.
There are many easy, budget-friendly steps you can take to up the appeal of your home. A fresh coat of paint in a neutral color, updated lighting and increased curb appeal can make a world of difference.
Any project you decide to tackle in your home should be for the benefit of you and your family, but it's a good idea to consider the return on your investment.
