While selling your new home is an exciting new beginning for you and your family, you should also make the most out of selling your current home. Before you place your house on the market, you may need to make some minor home improvements and updates to increase its value, such as modern fixtures, updated appliances, or new flooring. If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future, but are unsure with where to start on your updates, consider these three update hot spots in your home that may need a little TLC before your house hits the market.
Create a Beautiful Kitchen Space
Because the kitchen is one of the main focal points of any home, it is especially important to update this space before your home is on the market. Depending on how old your cabinets, floors, and countertops are, it may be necessary to invest in newer ones in order to make your kitchen look a new and polished space in your home. Updated appliances are also a major upsell for any home on the market, as this is often something that buyers will look for as they consider homes. It is also important to neutralize your decor in this space so that it is clean looking and easy for buyers to visualize as their home.
Give Your Bathroom an Upgrade
Your bathrooms are almost as important as your kitchen when selling your home, so they may also need a face-lift for cosmetic and appliance upgrades as well. Consider the age of your sink, toilets, and shower as you renovate. Similar to your kitchen upgrades, you will need to keep your bathroom decor neutral and polished so that it is clean and suitable for a new family.
Add Energy Efficient Options
Energy efficiency is another top seller for homes in 2018, such as the addition of smart thermostats, energy saving windows, and ceiling fans. Not only are these features great for saving energy and making your home more ‘green’, but this will also be appealing to potential buyers who are looking to save money on their energy bills.
