If your house is on the market, now is the best time to know what to do to increase the value of your home.
Do you want to attract buyers like a magnet?
1. Kitchen Upgrade
Kitchen is the heart and soul of the home, so don’t skip this upgrade. This is where families spend most of their time. HGTV says you can recover around 60 – 120 percent of what you invested in your kitchen renovation.
Buy a new faucet for the sink or install a new countertop. You may also consider knocking down a wall to connect the kitchen to the living space. Buyers these days opt for open floor plans.
This simple upgrade must be on top of your list and is certainly worth the extra expense. Consider asking your realtor when making a plan.
2. Do a landscape makeover
Landscape definitely brings a significant difference in the price of your home. It could be the most important thing even if your house is well kept.
Start planning on revitalizing your landscape by clearing tangled trees and hedges. Overgrown landscape will surely hide the good looks of your home. Be sure to beautify barren backyards and front yards.
Your curb appeal is the first thing a buyer sees when they drive up to your home. You want it to be welcoming. Pay attention to small details in your landscaping that bring big dividends like blooming flowers along your walkway, potted plants around your front door, and landscaping with a variety of color.
3. Make sure your house is clean and bright
Do you think your home looks attractive and welcoming? A clean and a vibrant home always creates a big impression. Give your house a clean and inviting look as buyers come and check your property.
Light things up with proper lighting fixtures and open window designs. It will enhance the space and will make you more confident to present to your buyers.
Remember, buyers start to make up their minds as soon as they enter the house. Make sure your waterfront home in Pittsburgh PA is ready.
4. Renovate the rooms
Tackle one room at a time. A new coat of paint will make the rooms look fresh and new. Touch up walls with chipped paint.
Make sure to use neutral colors since your buyers want to project their own design into a space.
5. Don’t skip the simple fixes
Cracked and dirty tiles or an old looking toilet will make your house look less appealing. Make sure to address these basic repairs. Fix plumbing leaks, repair gutters and inspect the septic system.
Be sure not to overdo it. Reglaze your tub instead of replacing it. This will save you money.
Investing in maintenance and repairs is crucial to a sale because buyers look for a property in a tip-top shape.
There are many things to consider if you want to increase the value of your waterfront home for sale in Pittsburgh but these suggestions must be on the top of your list.
Once you have made the plans on these upgrades, consult your realtor. She will keep you informed of what buyers really like.
Estimate how much it will cost you and how much return the improvement will bring.
