Selling your home can be stressful. Often this means updating and remodeling rooms to get the best selling price. It is essential to select your projects carefully to save money and get the best return on investment. When looking at what to consider before selling your home, it is a good idea to figure out what updates are worth making.
What are buyers looking for in today’s market, and what home improvement projects can you focus on to ensure your home sells quickly and for the best possible price? Modern features and amenities have become paramount to remote professionals, who currently make up around 75% of the home buying market. It’s also helpful to look at updates and design ideas that add convenience and are also aesthetically appealing.
Here are the top remodeling projects to consider before selling your home:
Open Up Living Space
Livable square footage is a significant factor when determining your home’s selling price. Open layouts and large rooms are highly sought after.
With the work-from-home trend continuing, many buyers are looking for dedicated workspaces separate from those they live and entertain in. Converting an existing room or building a home office can add significant value to your home.
Additions are another option that add livable space and can increase the price of your home.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and is frequently the most highly used room. A kitchen remodel also has one of the best returns on investment of any home renovation project. An updated kitchen sets the tone for how the entire home is perceived.
While many buyers understand that a new home comes with projects, they consistently shy away from a kitchen that needs renovating because of the hassle. A convenient floor plan and details like energy-efficient appliances, new cabinets and countertops, ample storage space, and quality light fixtures are ranked high in what home buyers look for when purchasing their new home.
Another home project that realtors and buyers appreciate is a bathroom remodel. Dated bathrooms can bring down the home’s value and increase the time it takes to sell. Updating fixtures, replacing cabinets and countertops, and fresh paint can greatly add value to your home. Updating the bathroom by adding or replacing counter space, storage, fixtures, flooring, and lighting will significantly impact your home’s selling price.
